    We present a compressed domain video object segmentation method for the MPEG encoded video sequences. For a fraction of the raw domain analysis, compressed domain segmentation provides the essential a priori information to many vision tasks from surveillance to transcoding that require fast processing of large volumes of data where pixel-resolution boundary extraction is not required. Our m... View full abstract»

    Stereo vision is a well-known ranging method because it resembles the basic mechanism of the human eye. However, the computational complexity and large amount of data access make real-time processing of stereo vision challenging because of the inherent instruction cycle delay within conventional computers. In order to solve this problem, the past 20 years of research have focused on the use of ded... View full abstract»

    Portable video communication devices operate on batteries with limited energy supply. Video compression is computationally intensive and energy-demanding. Therefore, one critical issue in portable video communication system design is to minimize the energy consumption of video encoding so as to prolong the operational lifetime of portable video devices. In this paper, we explore advanced methods i... View full abstract»

    Rate-distortion cost estimation is useful for many H.264/advanced video coding (AVC) applications including rate-distortion optimization (RDO) for mode-decision and rate-control. In this paper, we propose a new rate-prediction model and an adaptive algorithm to provide more accurate estimation of the number of coding bits for encoding intra and inter-blocks compared to previously proposed methods....

  • Action Detection in Cluttered Video With Successive Convex Matching

    We propose a novel successive convex matching method for human action detection in cluttered video. Human actions are represented as sequences of poses, and specific actions are detected by matching pose sequences. Since we represent actions as the evolution of poses and shapes, the proposed method can detect actions in videos that involve fast camera motions. Template sequence to video registrati...

    Ultrahigh-definition television (UHDTV) is the next-generation ultrahigh-resolution video system with more than 4000 lines, and 7680 horizontal pixels ?? 4320 vertical lines at 60 f/s (frames per second) in video format. We propose a method of converting high-quality UHDTV video to digital cinema video that is 3840 horizontal pixels ?? 2160 vertical lines at 24 f/s. Here, it is important to detect...

    Multiple description (MD) video coding is one of the approaches that can be used to reduce the detrimental effects caused by transmission over error-prone networks. A number of approaches have been proposed for MD coding, where each provides a different tradeoff between compression efficiency and error resilience. This paper first presents two basic MD coding methods; one segments the video in the... View full abstract»

    The motion estimation process and coding mode selection are responsible for a large portion of the computational effort in H.264-based video encoding systems optimized for rate-distortion (RD). This paper presents a rate sorting and truncation strategy that incorporates the RD optimization criterion in the decision to evaluate distortion for both motion vectors and coding modes. Experimental resul... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we propose the surveillance event recognition framework using Petri Nets (SERF-PN) for recognition of event occurrences in video. The Petri Net (PN) formalism allows a robust way to express semantic knowledge about the event domain as well as efficient algorithms for recognizing events as they occur in a particular video sequence. The major novelties of this paper are extensions to ... View full abstract»

    Kernel-based mean shift (MS) trackers have proven to be a promising alternative to stochastic particle filtering trackers. Despite its popularity, MS trackers have two fundamental drawbacks: 1) the template model can only be built from a single image, and 2) it is difficult to adaptively update the template model. In this paper, we generalize the plain MS trackers and attempt to overcome these two... View full abstract»

    Conventionally, biometrics resources, such as face, gait silhouette, footprint, and pressure, have been utilized in gender recognition systems. However, the acquisition and processing time of these biometrics data makes the analysis difficult. This letter demonstrates for the first time how effective the footwear appearance is for gender recognition as a biometrics resource. A footwear database is... View full abstract»

    Pattern-based block motion estimation (PBME) is a critical element in the contemporary video coding system because it typically dominates the coding efficiency and the computing power. Therefore, many proposals have been suggested to reduce its computational complexity, but most of them are devised based on experimental data or heuristic ideas. In this letter, we look into every component of a typ... View full abstract»

    Multiple description coding offers interesting solutions for error resilient multimedia communications as well as for distributed streaming applications. In this letter, we propose a scheme based on H.264/AVC for encoding of image sequences into multiple descriptions. The pictures are split into multiple coding threads. Redundant pictures are inserted periodically in order to increase the resilien... View full abstract»

    Video object segmentation is a critical task in multimedia analysis and editing. Normally, the user provides some hints of foreground and background, then the target object is extracted from the video sequence. Most previous methods are either computation-expensive or labor-intensive, and approaches that assume static background have limited applications. In this letter, we propose a novel video s...

    The newly developed enhanced hexagonal-based search using point-oriented inner search (EHS-POIS) enormously speeds up hexagon-based search (HS). From a different perspective, an inherent correlation between distortion and spatial direction through statistical analysis is found. Based on the observed distortion distribution, a novel enhanced hexagonal-based search with direction-oriented inner sear... View full abstract»
