    Object detection has been widely studied in the computer vision community and it has many real applications, despite its variations, such as scale, pose, lighting, and background. Most classical object detection methods heavily rely on category-based training to handle intra-class variations. In contrast to classical methods that use a rigid category-based representation, exemplar-based methods tr... View full abstract»

    Although a large number of methods for video text detection and recognition have been proposed over the past years, it is hard to find the best state-of-the-art method because of nonavailability of standard datasets, ground truth, and common evaluation measures. Therefore, in this paper, we propose a semiautomatic system for ground truth generation for video text detection and recognition, which i... View full abstract»

  • Kernel-Based Structural Binary Pattern Tracking

    In this paper, we propose a new pattern model, called the structural binary pattern (SBP) model, for object tracking. For the proposed SBP model, we introduce an alternate thresholding scheme to generate a set of multiple SBPs. The SBP encodes not only the binary pattern consisting of binarized differences between the average intensities of subregions within the target region, but also the spatial... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we present a robust and fast tracking algorithm in which object tracking is achieved by solving ℓ2-regularized least square (ℓ2-RLS) problems in a Bayesian inference framework. First, the changing appearance of the tracked target is modeled with PCA basis vectors and square templates, which makes the tracker not only exploit the strength of subspa... View full abstract»

    A new video standard called High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) has been recently finalized. In comparison with the H.264/AVC video coding standard, HEVC further improves the video coding rate distortion (RD) performance, but at the price of significant increase in its encoding complexity, especially in its motion estimation (ME) due to large block sizes and complicated block partition. To reduce ... View full abstract»

    We present a new and fast line descriptor and matching algorithm to geometrically register video frames that are deformed by a similarity transformation and contain line segments but with very low texture details, such as navigation maps. Line segments are extracted from the frames, and each line is described with a novel line descriptor that does not depend on pixel intensities. The described lin... View full abstract»

  • Video Saliency Map Detection by Dominant Camera Motion Removal

    We present a trajectory-based approach to detect salient regions in videos by dominant camera motion removal. Our approach is designed in a general way so that it can be applied to videos taken by either stationary or moving cameras without any prior information. Moreover, multiple salient regions of different temporal lengths can also be detected. To this end, we extract a set of spatially and te... View full abstract»

  • Camera Compensation Using a Feature Projection Matrix for Person Reidentification

    Matching individuals within a group of spatially nonoverlapping surveillance cameras, also known as person reidentification, has recently attracted a lot of research interest. Current methods mainly focus on feature representation or distance measure, which directly compare person images captured by different cameras. However, it is still a problem because of various surveillance conditions; for e... View full abstract»

  • Cost-Effective Features for Reidentification in Camera Networks

    Networks of smart cameras share large amounts of data to accomplish tasks such as reidentification. We propose a feature-selection method that minimizes the data needed to represent the appearance of objects by learning the most appropriate feature set for the task at hand (person reidentification). The computational cost for feature extraction and the cost for storing the feature descriptor are c... View full abstract»

  • Low-Complexity Intra Coding for Scalable Extension of HEVC Based on Content Statistics

    This paper presents a new approach for a scalable extension of High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) intra pictures. The proposed scalable intra codec targets very low complexity together with coding efficiency, and thus employs only one prediction mode, known as inter layer intra prediction. The main novelty of the codec is a new fast rate-distortion optimization approach, which is founded on the r... View full abstract»

  • Multiple Description Video Coding Based on Human Visual System Characteristics

    In this paper, a novel multiple description video coding scheme is proposed based on the characteristics of the human visual system (HVS). Due to the underlying spatial-temporal masking properties, human eyes cannot sense any changes below the just noticeable difference (JND) threshold. Therefore, at an encoder, only the visual information that cannot be predicted well within the JND tolerance nee... View full abstract»

    There exists a multitude of techniques, including automatic repeat request and error correction codes, to minimize data corruption when transmitting over error-prone networks. Streaming of multimedia data can usually withstand a certain level of data loss, yet have strict limitations on the latency tolerance. To enable acceptable reliability of transmission and low transmission latency, the channe... View full abstract»

    As a new paradigm, cloud gaming allows users to play high-end video games instantly without downloading or installing the original game software. In this paper, we first conduct a series of well-designed active and passive measurements on a large-scale cloud gaming platform and identify the significant diversity in the queueing delay and response delay among users. We note that the latency problem... View full abstract»

    To reduce human efforts in browsing long surveillance videos, synopsis videos are proposed. Traditional synopsis video generation applying optimization on video tubes is very time consuming and infeasible for real-time online generation. This dilemma significantly reduces the feasibility of synopsis video generation in practical situations. To solve this problem, the synopsis video generation prob... View full abstract»

    Rain removal from a single color image is a challenging problem as no temporal information among successive images can be obtained. In this paper, we propose a single-color-image-based rain removal framework by properly formulating rain removal as an image decomposition problem based on sparse representation. In our framework, an input color image is first decomposed into a low-frequency part and ... View full abstract»
