    Tensor analysis plays an important role in modern image and vision computing problems. Most of the existing tensor analysis approaches are based on the Frobenius norm, which makes them sensitive to outliers. In this paper, we propose L1-norm-based tensor analysis (TPCA-L1), which is robust to outliers. Experimental results upon face and other datasets demonstrate the advantages of the proposed app...

    This paper explains the development of a highly efficient progressive 3-D mesh geometry coder based on the region adaptive transform in the spectral mesh compression method. A hierarchical set partitioning technique, originally proposed for the efficient compression of wavelet transform coefficients in high-performance wavelet-based image coding methods, is proposed for the efficient compression o...

    Wyner-Ziv (WZ) coding of video utilizes simple encoders and highly complex decoders. A transcoder from a WZ codec to a traditional codec can potentially increase the range of applications for WZ codecs. We present a transcoder scheme from the most popular WZ codec architecture to a differential pulse code modulation/discrete cosine transform codec. As a proof of concept, we implemented this transc... View full abstract»

    In scalable video coding (SVC) as an extension of H.264/advanced video coding (AVC), a computationally expensive exhaustive mode decision is employed to select the best coding mode for each macroblock (MB). In order to reduce computational complexity, we propose a fast mode decision algorithm for SVC which uses an all-zero block (AZB) detection. Based on the empirical analysis of the inter-layer c...

    In this paper, a new low-complexity distortion estimation method for the H.264 rate-distortion optimized mode decision is proposed. Coding processes, such as discrete cosine transform (DCT), quantization, inverse quantization, inverse DCT, and reconstruction, are needed to compute the distortion in an H.264 encoder. To reduce these computations, we estimate the distortion using coefficients calcul... View full abstract»

    Context-based adaptive variable length coding (CAVLC) for the H.264/advanced video coding (AVC) standard was originally designed for lossy video coding, and as such does not yield adequate performance for lossless video coding. In this paper, we propose an improved CAVLC for lossless intra-coding by considering the statistical differences in residual data between lossy and lossless coding. From ex... View full abstract»

    We present a novel tracking method for effectively tracking objects in structured environments. The tracking method finds applications in security surveillance, traffic monitoring, etc. In these applications, the movements of objects are constrained by structured environments. Therefore, the relationship between objects and environments can be exploited as additional information for improving the ... View full abstract»

  • Integration of Recursive Temporal LMMSE Denoising Filter Into Video Codec

    The presence of noise can dramatically affect the efficiency of video compression systems. For performance improvement, most practical video compression systems adopt a denoising filter as a pre-processing module for the video encoder, or as a post-processing module for the video decoder, but the complexity introduced by denoising can be very high. This paper first presents a recursive temporal li... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a low-complexity rate control (RC) framework for H.264/advanced video coding (AVC) encoders on embedded systems. We consider not only the rate-distortion performance but also its implementation complexity using an efficient hardware/software codesign. The proposed cost-effective macroblock level RC module works in hardware, and the frame-level RC is executed on the system CPU a... View full abstract»

  • Efficient Motion Re-Estimation With Rate-Distortion Optimization for MPEG-2 to H.264/AVC Transcoding

    One objective in MPEG-2 to H.264/advanced video coding transcoding is to improve the H.264/AVC compression ratio by using more advanced macroblock encoding modes. The motion re-estimation process is by far the most time-consuming process in this type of video transcoding. In this paper, we present an efficient H.264/AVC block size partitioning prediction algorithm for MPEG-2 to H.264/AVC transcodi... View full abstract»

    Video streaming over the Internet and packet-based wireless networks is sensitive to packet loss, which can severely damage the quality of the received video. To protect the transmitted video data against packet loss, application-layer forward error correction (FEC) is commonly used. Typically, for a given source block, the channel code rate is fixed in advance according to an estimation of the pa... View full abstract»

    Recent research in wireless multimedia streaming has focused on optimizing the multimedia quality in isolation, at each station. However, the cross-layer transmission strategy deployed at one station impacts and is impacted by the other stations, as the wireless network resource is shared among all competing users. Hence, efficient and fair resource management for autonomous wireless multimedia us... View full abstract»

    In H.264/AVC coders, the optimal mode decision for each coding unit is achieved based on a calculation of the rate-distortion (R-D) cost for each candidate mode. In this letter, we propose a context-adaptive binary arithmetic coding (CABAC)-based rate estimation scheme that reduces the computational complexity of the R-D cost function evaluation. The complex and time-consuming calculation of the a... View full abstract»

    A novel image scanning and transmission system is proposed, where the traditional raster scan is replaced with a new one, called a chaotic scan. The result is a low complexity image transmission system with encryption and spread spectrum capabilities well suited for compressed sensing applications. Due to the uncorrelated nature of the consecutively scanned pixels, it allows a form of progressive ... View full abstract»
