    In contrast to static imagery, detection of events of interest in video involves evidence accumulation across space and time; the observer is required to integrate features from both motion and form to decide whether a behavior constituents a target event. Do such events that extend in time elicit evoked responses of similar strength as evoked responses associated with instantaneous events such as... View full abstract»

    Using less bandwidth on the one hand and delivering high quality content on the other hand is one of the big goals for video service providers. Standardized rating tests are commonly used to quantify audiovisual quality. In order to better understand the neuronal processes underlying these quality ratings physiological measures may provide insights. This paper shows results of a series of studies ...

    Image retargeting techniques aim to obtain retargeted images with different sizes or aspect ratios for various display screens. Various content-aware image retargeting algorithms have been proposed recently. However, there is still no effective objective metric for visual quality assessment of retargeted images. In this paper, we propose a novel full-reference objective metric for assessing visual... View full abstract»

    It is now a common knowledge for mobile users to notice that the video viewing experience for the same device and same content can be dramatically different. The main reason for such difference is the dynamic viewing environment of mobile device which may change from indoor to outdoor or from walking to riding in a traveling vehicle. In this paper, we report our recent study on how mobile video pe... View full abstract»

  • Visual Attention Model Aided Non-Uniform Asymmetric Coding of Stereoscopic Video

    Owing to its wide-interoperability, stereoscopic 3D video format in High Definition (HD) is a popular choice for 3D entertainment media distribution. However, the delivery over bandwidth constrained networks exhibits challenges in terms of intermittent congestions in the network traffic, which enforce the delivery system to perform perception-aware coding to save bandwidth. In the scope of stereos... View full abstract»

  • 3D Visual Discomfort Prediction: Vergence, Foveation, and the Physiological Optics of Accommodation

    To achieve clear binocular vision, neural processes that accomplish accommodation and vergence are performed via two collaborative, cross-coupled processes: accommodation-vergence (AV) and vergence-accommodation (VA). However, when people watch stereo images on stereoscopic displays, normal neural functioning may be disturbed owing to anomalies of the cross-link gains. These anomalies are likely t...

  • Perceptual Principles for Video Classification With Slow Feature Analysis

    At the core of vision research is the notion of perceptual invariance. The question of how the visual system is able to develop stable or invariant states through the ever transforming environment is central to understanding the brain's recognition process. The coined term slowness principle used in slow feature analysis is a reference to the brain's ability to generate slow changing and thus stab... View full abstract»

  • A Retina-Based Perceptually Lossless Limit and a Gaussian Foveation Scheme With Loss Control

    In this paper, we propose a new limit that promises theoretically achievable data reduction ratios up to approximately 9:1 with no perceptual loss in typical scenarios. Also, we introduce a novel Gaussian foveation scheme that provides experimentally achievable gains up to approximately 2 times the compression ratio of typical compression schemes with less perceptual loss than in typical transmiss...

  • Coherency Based Spatio-Temporal Saliency Detection for Video Object Segmentation

    Extracting moving and salient objects from videos is important for many applications like surveillance and video retargeting. In this paper we use spatial and temporal coherency information to segment salient objects in videos. While many methods use motion information from videos, they do not exploit coherency information which has the potential to give more accurate saliency maps. Spatial cohere... View full abstract»

  • Perception-Oriented Methodology for Robust Motion Estimation Design

    Optimizing a motion estimator (ME) for picture rate conversion is challenging. This is because there are many types of MEs and, within each type, many parameters, which makes subjective assessment of all the alternatives impractical. To solve this problem, we propose an automatic design methodology that provides `well-performing MEs' from the multitude of options. Moreover, we prove that applying ... View full abstract»

  • Region-of-Interest Based Conversational HEVC Coding with Hierarchical Perception Model of Face

    In this paper, we propose a region-of-interest (ROI) based HEVC coding approach for conversational videos, with a novel hierarchical perception model of face (HP model), to improve the perceived visual quality of state-of-the-art HEVC standard. In contrast to the previous ROI-based video coding approaches, this novel HP model allows the unequal importance of facial features (e.g., the eyes and mou... View full abstract»

    Gamut mapping transforms the colors of an input image to the colors of a target device so as to exploit the full potential of the rendering device in terms of color rendition. In this paper we present spatial gamut mapping algorithms that rely on a perceptually-based variational framework. Our algorithms adapt a well-known image energy functional whose minimization leads to image enhancement and c... View full abstract»
