    In dual frame motion compensation (DFMC), one short-term reference frame and one long-term reference frame (LTR) are utilized for motion compensation. The performance of DFMC is heavily influenced by the jump updating parameter and bit allocation for the reference frames. In this paper, first the rate-distortion performance analysis of motion compensated prediction in DFMC is presented. Based on t... View full abstract»

    Standard video coders utilize variable length coding (VLC) to obtain more data compression in addition to what lossy coding has achieved at the expense of making the compressed bitstream very vulnerable to channel errors. Even a 1-bit error incurred in the bitstream may cause the follow-up bitstream to be either erroneously decoded or completely undecodable, and this could further result in error ...

    This paper presents a system for automatically detecting and analyzing complex player actions in moving background sports video sequences, aiming at action-based sports videos indexing and providing kinematic measurements for coach assistance and performance improvement. The system works in a coarse-to-fine fashion. For an input video, in the coarse granularity level, we automatically segment the ... View full abstract»

    The brand-new SP-frame in H.264 facilitates drift-free bitstream switching. Notwithstanding the guarantee of seamless switching, the cost is the bulky size of secondary SP-frames. This induces a significant amount of additional space or bandwidth for storage or transmission. In this paper, our investigation reveals that the size of secondary SP-frames is more severe when the correlation between th... View full abstract»

    In this paper we propose an edge-directed error concealment (EDEC) algorithm, to recover lost slices in video sequences encoded by flexible macroblock ordering. First, the strong edges in a corrupted frame are estimated based on the edges in the neighboring frames and the received area of the current frame. Next, the lost regions along these estimated edges are recovered using both spatial and tem... View full abstract»

  • A Robust Image Watermarking in the Ridgelet Domain Using Universally Optimum Decoder

    A robust image watermarking scheme in the ridgelet transform domain is proposed in this paper. Due to the use of the ridgelet domain, sparse representation of an image which deals with line singularities is obtained. In order to achieve more robustness and transparency, the watermark data is embedded in selected blocks of the host image by modifying the amplitude of the ridgelet coefficients which...

  • Unequal Error Protection for Robust Streaming of Scalable Video Over Packet Lossy Networks

    Efficient bit stream adaptation and resilience to packet losses are two critical requirements in scalable video coding for transmission over packet-lossy networks. Various scalable layers have highly distinct importance, measured by their contribution to the overall video quality. This distinction is especially more significant in the scalable H.264/advanced video coding (AVC) video, due to the em... View full abstract»

    This paper proposes a non-orthogonal view iris recognition system comprising a new iris imaging module, an iris segmentation module, an iris feature extraction module and a classification module. A dual-charge-coupled device camera was developed to capture four-spectral (red, green, blue, and near-infrared) iris images which contain useful information for simplifying the iris segmentation task.

    We propose a new distance measure for face recognition and human gait recognition. Each probe image (a face image or an average human silhouette image) is represented as a set of local features uniformly sampled over a grid with fixed spacing, and each gallery image is represented as a set of local features sampled at each pixel. We formulate an integer programming problem to compute the distance ... View full abstract»

    Image feature extraction and similarity measure in feature space are active research topics. They are basic components in a content-based image retrieval (CBIR) system. In this letter, we present a new statistical model-based image feature extraction method in the wavelet domain and a novel Kullback divergence-based similarity measure. First, a Gaussian mixture model (GMM) and a more systematic ge... View full abstract»

    Embedded block coding with optimized truncation (EBCOT) employed in the JPEG2000 standard accounts for the majority of the processing time, because the EBCOT is full of bit operations that cannot be implemented efficiently in software. The block coder consists of a bit-plane coder (BPC) followed by a binary arithmetic coder (BAC), where the most up-to-date BPC architectures are capable of producin... View full abstract»

    This letter presents a region-based predictive decoding technique for end-to-end delay reduction in video communications. Video frames are predicted from past video data and displayed before they arrive at the decoder, thereby reducing the end-to-end delay. This problem is similar to whole-frame concealment, so we compare our method to a state-of-the-art whole-frame concealment algorithm. As demon... View full abstract»

  • Robust Filtering Technique for Reduction of Temporal Fluctuation in H.264 Video Sequences

    The H.264/advanced video coding standard applies a spatial loop-filter in both encoder and decoder to reduce the blocking artifact. However, the temporal fluctuation artifact is still noticeable between intra-coded frames or between an intra (I)-frame and its preceding or subsequent inter-prediction (P) frames. This letter proposes a temporal postfilter using a robust statistical model to reduce t... View full abstract»

    In this letter, a rate estimation technique using transform coefficient variance is proposed in the rate-distortion cost function for intra mode decision. The new cost function achieves better coding performance than the cost function using the ??-domain model. The new cost function brings out an average speed-up factor of 13 when compared with the rate-distortion optimization (RDO) mode decision,... View full abstract»
