    Single instruction multiple data (SIMD) execution is in no doubt an efficient way to exploit the data level parallelism in image and video applications. However, SIMD execution bottlenecks must be tackled in order to achieve high execution efficiency. We first analyze in this paper the implementation of two major kernel functions of H.264/AVC namely, SATD and subpel interpolation, in conventional ... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a new object tracking model that systematically combines region and boundary features. Besides traditional region features (intensity/color and texture), we design a new boundary-based object detector for accurate and robust tracking in low-contrast and complex scenes, which usually appear in the commonly used monochrome surveillance systems. In our model, region feature-based ... View full abstract»

    Tracking an object without any prior information regarding its appearance is a challenging problem. Modern tracking algorithms treat tracking as a binary classification problem between the object class and the background class. The binary classifier can be learned offline, if a specific object model is available, or online, if there is no prior information about the object's appearance. In this pa... View full abstract»

  • Saliency Density Maximization for Efficient Visual Objects Discovery

    Detection of salient objects in an image remains a challenging problem despite extensive studies in visual saliency, as the generated saliency map is usually noisy and incomplete. In this paper, we propose a new method to discover the salient object without prior knowledge on its shape and size. By searching the sub-image, i.e., a bounding box of maximum saliency density, the new formulation can a... View full abstract»

    For multiview video generation from 2-D video sequences, the most important stage is to efficiently synthesize the corresponding depth maps for all video frames. The depth map generation involving precise object segmentation and depth assignment requires intensive computation and human assistance which could be costly and possibly inconsistent. To achieve reliable depth map generation, an efficien... View full abstract»

    Multi-view video plus depth format, which includes texture and depth images, has been recently introduced as a video representation to support depth perception of scenes and efficient view generation at arbitrary positions. Especially, a depth image has been one of the significantly important issues for successful services of 3-D video applications. In this paper, we introduce a fast and efficient...

    In this paper, we present a framework for real-time mosaicing from video sequences recorded from an uncalibrated pan tilt zoom camera based on multiframe registration. To this end, a new frame alignment algorithm, the direct local indirect global (DLIG), is presented. The key idea of the DLIG alignment is to divide the frame alignment problem into the problem of registering a set of spatially rela... View full abstract»

    Video stabilization is important in many application fields, such as visual surveillance. Video stabilization and completion based on a single camera have been well studied in recent years, but it remains a very challenging problem. In this paper, we propose a novel framework to produce a stable high-resolution video for visual surveillance by using two cameras, in which one static camera serves t... View full abstract»

    Video quality assessment (VQA) exploits important properties of the sophisticated human visual system (HVS). In this paper, we study a series of fundamental HVS characteristics for subjective video quality assessment, and incorporate them into a systematic framework to simulate subjective evaluation on impaired videos. Based on this framework, we develop a novel full-reference metric, namely, perc... View full abstract»

    Fire-flame detection using a video camera is difficult because a flame has irregular characteristics, i.e., vague shapes and color patterns. Therefore, in this paper, we propose a novel fire-flame detection method using fuzzy finite automata (FFA) with probability density functions based on visual features, thereby providing a systemic approach to handling irregularity in computational systems and...

    People with some signs of binocular dysfunctioning can be susceptible to visual complaints associated with viewing stereoscopic content at large viewing distances. Two performance measurements enabled to distinguish people by their binocular status (BS) in previous research: the ratio of performance of the Wilkins rate of reading test (WRRT) between 2-D and 3-D, and the vergence facility.

    H.264/AVC adopts many directional spatial prediction models in block-based manner that neighboring pixels on the left and top sides yield prediction for the pixels in a data block to be encoded. However, such models may adapt poorly to the rich textures inside blocks of video signal. In this letter, a new lossless intra coding method based on pixel-wise interleave prediction is presented to enhanc... View full abstract»

    The hybrid Wyner-Ziv (WZ) and intra video coding system has many interesting features, like the possibility to perform real motion estimation, at the decoder, and low latency coding. In this letter, we present an improved system and we will generalize it to include the other types of WZ coding. Thus, we propose a new quantization and a new cyclic redundancy check checking technique and, most impor... View full abstract»
