    As CMOS technology driven by Moore's law has approached device sizes in the range of 5-20 nm, noise immunity of such future technology nodes is predicted to decrease considerably, eventually affecting the reliability of computations through them. A shift in the design paradigm is expected from 100% accurate computations to probabilistic computing with accuracy dependent on the target application o... View full abstract»

    Although numerous trackers have been designed to adapt to the nonstationary image streams that change over time, it remains a challenging task to facilitate a tracker to accurately distinguish the target from the background in every frame. This paper proposes a robust superpixel-based tracker via depth fusion, which exploits the adequate structural information and great flexibility of mid-level fe... View full abstract»

    Saliency detection is widely used to extract regions of interest in images for various image processing applications. Recently, many saliency detection models have been proposed for video in uncompressed (pixel) domain. However, video over Internet is always stored in compressed domains, such as MPEG2, H.264, and MPEG4 Visual. In this paper, we propose a novel video saliency detection model based ...

    This paper presents a weighted least squares-based intrafield de-interlacing algorithm. First, we formulate the estimation of the missing pixels as a maximum a posteriori (MAP) framework. We deduce the weighted least squares structure from MAP based on the analysis of the statistic model of the original high-resolution images and the associated statistical model of the given low-resolution images ...

    Image/video matting is one of the key operations in many image/video editing applications. Although previous methods can generate high-quality matting results, their high computational cost in processing high-resolution image and video data often limits their usability. In this paper, we present a unified acceleration method for closed-form image and video matting using a hierarchical data structu... View full abstract»

  • Compass Rose: A Rotational Robust Signature for Optical Flow Computation

    This paper proposes a new image signature, called Compass Rose, which is particularly suited to optical flow computation. It is differentiable, fast to compute, and robust to additive illumination changes, translation, and fast rotation. We design a sparse flow computation system based on the invariance of the Compass Rose signatures. This is then extended to dense motion estimation by the additio... View full abstract»

  • Spatio-Temporally Consistent View Synthesis From Video-Plus-Depth Data With Global Optimization

    We propose a novel algorithm to generate a virtual-view video from a video-plus-depth sequence. The proposed method enforces the spatial and temporal consistency in the disocclusion regions by formulating the problem as an energy minimization problem in a Markov random field (MRF) framework. At the system level, we first recover the depth images and the motion vector maps after the image warping w... View full abstract»

  • A Bayesian Model for Crowd Escape Behavior Detection

    People naturally escape from a place when unexpected events happen. Based on this observation, efficient detection of crowd escape behavior in surveillance videos is a promising way to perform timely detection of anomalous situations. In this paper, we propose a Bayesian framework for escape detection by directly modeling crowd motion in both the presence and absence of escape events. Specifically... View full abstract»

  • H.264/AVC to HEVC Video Transcoder Based on Dynamic Thresholding and Content Modeling

    Publication Year: 2014, Page(s):99 - 112

    The new video coding standard, High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC), was developed to succeed the current standard, H.264/AVC, as the state of the art in video compression. However, there is a lot of legacy content encoded with H.264/AVC. This paper proposes and evaluates several transcoding algorithms from the H.264/AVC to the HEVC format. In particular, a novel transcoding architecture, in which ... View full abstract»

  • A Content-Adaptive Distortion–Quantization Model for H.264/AVC and its Applications

    Accurately estimating the resultant quality or distortion associated with quantization parameter (QP) is very helpful to video encoding. In this research, a content-adaptive distortion-quantization model for H.264/AVC is proposed to predict the distortion level, which is defined as the difference between the original video frame and the decoded one in the sum of squared errors. The proposed model ... View full abstract»

  • Correlation Noise-Based Unequal Error Protected Rate-Adaptive Codes for Distributed Video Coding

    Distributed video coding (DVC) is a paradigm that can shift most of the computational intensive tasks from the encoder to the decoder. This allows for the design of low complexity encoders that can be deployed in devices equipped with limited resources. However, the compression efficiency obtained using practical DVC codecs are still distant from those of traditional predictive video coding scheme... View full abstract»

  • EXIT-Based Side Information Refinement in Wyner–Ziv Video Coding

    The accuracy of the side information (SI) is critical in the performance of distributed video coding algorithms. The SI is typically built at a decoder based on the reconstructed data and on channel coding parity bits transmitted by the encoder. The optimal encoding rate is generally difficult to compute precisely due to the dynamics of video content with varying correlation. Effective methods for... View full abstract»

    Digital camera identification can be accomplished based on sensor pattern noise, which is unique to a device, and serves as a distinct identification fingerprint. Camera identification and authentication have formed the basis of image/video forensics in legal proceedings. Unfortunately, real-time video source identification is a computationally heavy task, and does not scale well to conventional s... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we present area- and power-efficient architectures for the implementation of integer discrete cosine transform (DCT) of different lengths to be used in High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC). We show that an efficient constant matrix-multiplication scheme can be used to derive parallel architectures for 1-D integer DCT of different lengths. We also show that the proposed structure coul...
