    A unified optimization framework for rate allocation among multiple video multicast sessions sharing a wireless network is presented. Our framework applies to delivery of both scalable and non-scalable video streams. In both cases, the optimization objective is to minimize the total video distortion of all peers without incurring excessive network utilization. Our system model explicitly accounts ...

    Realistic human action recognition in videos has been a useful yet challenging task. Video shots of same actions may present huge intra-class variations in terms of visual appearance, kinetic patterns, video shooting, and editing styles. Heterogeneous feature representations of videos pose another challenge on how to effectively handle the redundancy, complementariness and disagreement in these fe... View full abstract»

    This paper proposes a boosted co-training algorithm for human action recognition. To address the view-sufficiency and view-dependency issues in co-training, two new confidence measures, namely, inter-view confidence and intra-view confidence, are proposed. They are dynamically fused into a semi-supervised learning process. Mutual information is employed to quantify the inter-view uncertainty and m... View full abstract»

We also present our co-designed, low power very large scale integration (VLSI) architecture for HMDS. The goal of HMDS is to enable the support of high quality video on low power mobile devices and low bit rate applications which typically use H.264/AVC... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we propose a graph theoretic technique for recognizing human actions at a distance in a video by modeling the visual senses associated with poses. The proposed methodology follows a bag-of-word approach that starts with a large vocabulary of poses (visual words) and derives a refined and compact codebook of key poses using centrality measure of graph connectivity. We introduce a &#x... View full abstract»

    In video coding, an intra (I)-frame is used as an anchor frame for referencing the subsequence frames, as well as error propagation prevention, indexing, and so on. To get better rate-distortion performance, a frame should have the following quality to be an ideal I-frame: the best similarity with the frames in a group of picture (GOP), so that when it is used as a reference frame for a frame in t...

  • A Two-Phase Test Sample Sparse Representation Method for Use With Face Recognition

    Cited by:  Papers (203)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (534 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this paper, we propose a two-phase test sample representation method for face recognition. The first phase of the proposed method seeks to represent the test sample as a linear combination of all the training samples and exploits the representation ability of each training sample to determine M “nearest neighbors” for the test sample. The second phase represents the test sample as... View full abstract»

  • RBF-Based QP Estimation Model for VBR Control in H.264/SVC

    Publication Year: 2011, Page(s):1263 - 1277
    Cited by:  Papers (7)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (5629 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this paper, we propose a novel variable bit rate (VBR) controller for real-time H.264/scalable video coding (SVC) applications. The proposed VBR controller relies on the fact that consecutive pictures within the same scene often exhibit similar degrees of complexity, and consequently should be encoded using similar quantization parameter (QP) values for the sake of quality consistency. In order... View full abstract»

  • An Efficient Encoder Rate Control Solution for Transform Domain Wyner–Ziv Video Coding

    Most Wyner-Ziv (WZ) video coding solutions in the literature use a feedback channel (FC) based decoder rate control (DRC) strategy to adjust the bitrate to correct the side information (SI) errors. More recently, some encoder rate control (ERC) strategies have been proposed to address application scenarios where a FC is not available. The ERC based WZ video coding RD performance depends not only o... View full abstract»

    One of the remaining problems in iris recognition is the implementation of its efficient hardware systems. The difficulty arises from the fact that the methods forming part of this type of authentication process are fairly complex. Furthermore, next generation algorithms for iris recognition will become even more complex to enhance the reliability and functionality of currently used solutions. An ... View full abstract»

    H.264/AVC, the latest video coding standard of the Joint Video Team, greatly outperforms previous standards in terms of coding bitrate and video quality, because it adopts several new techniques. However, the computational complexity is also considerably increased due to these new components. In this paper, we propose fast algorithms based on statistical learning to reduce the computational cost i... View full abstract»

  • A Joint Approach to Global Motion Estimation and Motion Segmentation From a Coarsely Sampled Motion Vector Field

    In many content-based video processing systems, the presence of moving objects limits the accuracy of global motion estimation (GME). On the other hand, the inaccuracy of global motion parameter estimates affects the performance of motion segmentation. In this paper, we introduce a procedure for simultaneous object segmentation and GME from a coarsely sampled (i.e., block-based) motion vector (MV)... View full abstract»

    In our earlier work , we proposed for the first time that the perceptual video encryption be performed at the transformation stage by selecting one out of multiple unitary transforms according to the encryption key. In this letter, we aim to design some more efficient transforms to be used in this framework. Two criteria are followed for designing such transforms: 1) they are significantly differe...
