    In this paper, we address a super-resolution (SR) problem that constructs a high-resolution (HR) frame/image from a short sequence of low-resolution (LR) frames/images. It is well known that SR is a difficult problem, especially when the number of LR inputs is small. In particular, our previous work involving multisurface fitting-based SR exhibits relatively poor performance in the above case. To ... View full abstract»

  • Novel DCT-Based Image Up-Sampling Using Learning-Based Adaptive ${k}$ -NN MMSE Estimation

    Publication Year: 2014, Page(s):2018 - 2033
    Cited by:  Papers (8)

    Image up-sampling in the discrete cosine transform (DCT) domain is a challenging problem because DCT coefficients are de-correlated, such that it is nontrivial to estimate directly high-frequency DCT coefficients from observed low-frequency DCT coefficients. In the literature, DCT-based up-sampling algorithms usually pad zeros as high-frequency DCT coefficients or estimate such coefficients with l... View full abstract»

  • Joint Video Frame Set Division and Low-Rank Decomposition for Background Subtraction

    Publication Year: 2014, Page(s):2034 - 2048

    The recently proposed robust principle component analysis (RPCA) has been successfully applied in background subtraction. However, low-rank decomposition makes sense on the condition that the foreground pixels (sparsity patterns) are uniformly located at the scene, which is not realistic in real-world applications. To overcome this limitation, we reconstruct the input video frames and aim to make ... View full abstract»

  • Local Density Encoding for Robust Stereo Matching

    Stereo correspondence is challenging under realistic conditions due to uncontrolled factors that affect input images, including illumination inconsistencies and radiometric variations. Many local and global models have been suggested to address these problems; however, their performance is often degraded due to the assumption of color consistency between the left and right images. Therefore, we pr... View full abstract»

  • Shape-From-Focus Depth Reconstruction With a Spatial Consistency Model

    Publication Year: 2014, Page(s):2063 - 2076
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3946 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This paper presents a maximum a posteriori (MAP) framework to incorporate a spatial consistency prior model for depth reconstruction in the shape-from-focus (SFF) process. Existing SFF techniques, which reconstruct a dense 3-D depth from multifocus image frames, usually have poor performance over low-contrast regions and usually need a large number of frames to achieve satisfactory results.

  • Efficient Parallel Framework for HEVC Motion Estimation on Many-Core Processors

    High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) provides superior coding efficiency than previous video coding standards at the cost of increasing encoding complexity. The complexity increase of motion estimation (ME) procedure is rather significant, especially when considering the complicated partitioning structure of HEVC. To fully exploit the coding efficiency brought by HEVC requires a huge amount of comp... View full abstract»

    MV-HEVC refers to the multiview extension of High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC). At the time of writing, MV-HEVC was being developed by the Joint Collaborative Team on 3D Video Coding Extension Development (JCT-3V) of International Organization for Standardization (ISO)/International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) Moving Picture Experts Group and ITU-T VCEG. Before HEVC itself was technically ... View full abstract»

  • Toward Real-Time and Efficient Compression of Human Time-Varying Meshes

    Publication Year: 2014, Page(s):2099 - 2116
    Cited by:  Papers (7)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (6950 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this paper, a novel skeleton-based approach to human time-varying mesh (H-TVM) compression is presented. The topic of TVM compression is new and has many challenges, such as handling the lack of obvious mapping of vertices across frames and handling the variable connectivity across frames, while maintaining efficiency, which are the most important ones. Very few works exist in the literature, w... View full abstract»

  • Energy Consumption of Visual Sensor Networks: Impact of Spatio-Temporal Coverage

    Wireless visual sensor networks (VSNs) are expected to play a major role in future IEEE 802.15.4 personal area networks (PANs) under recently established collision-free medium access control (MAC) protocols, such as the IEEE 802.15.4e-2012 MAC. In such environments, the VSN energy consumption is affected by a number of camera sensors deployed (spatial coverage), as well as a number of captured vid... View full abstract»

  • Energy-Efficient SRAM FPGA-Based Wireless Vision Sensor Node: SENTIOF-CAM

    Many wireless vision sensor networks (WVSNs) applications are characterized to have a low duty cycling. An individual wireless vision sensor node (VSN) in WVSN is required to complete the tasks as quickly as possible. The execution of the tasks can be speeded up by exploiting the inherited parallelism in the tasks by using a hardware platform such as field-programmable gate array (FPGA). Tradition...

  • Exposing Fake Bit Rate Videos and Estimating Original Bit Rates

    Publication Year: 2014, Page(s):2144 - 2154

    Bit rate is one of the important criterions for digital video quality. With some video tools, however, video bit rate can be easily increased without improving the video quality at all. In such a case, a claimed high bit rate video would actually have poor visual quality if it is up-converted from an original lower bit rate version. Therefore, exposing fake bit rate videos becomes an important iss... View full abstract»
