    Separation of video clips into foreground and background components is a useful and important technique, making recognition, classification, and scene analysis more efficient. In this paper, we propose a motion-assisted matrix restoration (MAMR) model for foreground-background separation in video clips. In the proposed MAMR model, the backgrounds across frames are modeled by a low-rank matrix, whi... View full abstract»

    This paper proposes a new constrained directed graph clustering (DGC) method and segmentation propagation method for the multiple foreground cosegmentation. We solve the multiple object cosegmentation with the perspective of classification and propagation, where the classification is used to obtain the object prior of each class and the propagation is used to propagate the prior to all images. In ... View full abstract»

    Sparse representation-based visual tracking approaches have attracted increasing interests in the community in recent years. The main idea is to linearly represent each target candidate using a set of target and trivial templates, while imposing a sparsity constraint onto the representation coefficients. After we obtain the coefficients using ℓ1-norm minimization methods, the can... View full abstract»

  • Simultaneous Hallucination and Recognition of Low-Resolution Faces Based on Singular Value Decomposition

    In video surveillance, the captured face images are usually of low resolution (LR). Thus, a framework based on singular value decomposition (SVD) for performing both face hallucination and recognition simultaneously is proposed in this paper. Conventionally, LR face recognition is carried out by super-resolving the LR input face first, and then performing face recognition to identify the input fac... View full abstract»

  • Memory Efficient Multilevel Discrete Wavelet Transform Schemes for JPEG2000

    Publication Year: 2015, Page(s):1773 - 1785
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1522 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    When working with the line-based wavelet transform, JPEG2000 needs to buffer many sub-band lines for future block coding. This coding buffer occupies the majority of the memory usage in a JPEG2000 system. In this paper, we first use the multilevel block-based wavelet transform, and then utilize the multilevel stripe-based wavelet transform to realize JPEG2000 coding. The system schemes of the mult...

  • An HEVC-Compliant Perceptual Video Coding Scheme Based on JND Models for Variable Block-Sized Transform Kernels

    In this paper, a High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC)-compliant perceptual video coding (PVC) scheme is introduced based on just-noticeable difference (JND) models in both transform and pixel domains. We adopt an existing pixel-domain JND model for the transform skip mode of HEVC and propose a transform-domain JND model for the transform nonskip modes of HEVC. The proposed transform-domain JND mode... View full abstract»

  • Layered Soft Video Broadcast for Heterogeneous Receivers

    Wireless video broadcast poses a challenge to the conventional visual communication in providing simultaneously each receiver the best video quality under its channel condition. Soft video broadcast, as a newly emerged wireless video broadcast scheme, is able to accommodate multiple receivers of different channel SNRs. However, the current soft video broadcast frameworks such as SoftCast require t... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a novel smart downlink scheduling scheme to enhance the performance of multimedia transmission over long-term evolution (LTE) networks. LTE represents a promising framework for the next-generation broadband multimedia services because of its significantly increased data rate over 3G cellular networks. However, the current LTE scheduling scheme has largely been designed for gene... View full abstract»

    Although the High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) standard significantly improves the coding efficiency of video compression, it is unacceptable even in offline applications to spend several hours compressing 10 s of high-definition video. In this paper, we propose using a multicore central processing unit (CPU) and an off-the-shelf graphics processing unit (GPU) with 3072 streaming processors (SPs... View full abstract»

  • Architecture Design of the H.264/AVC Encoder Based on Rate-Distortion Optimization

    Rate-distortion (RD) optimization (RDO) allows video encoders to achieve better compression efficiencies due to more reliable mode decisions. On the other hand, this technique involves a high computational cost when actual rates and distortions are estimated. To achieve real-time processing, video encoders apply simplified algorithms for mode decisions. This paper presents the H.264/Advanced Video... View full abstract»

    Landmark summarization with diverse viewpoints is very important in landmark retrieval, as it can create a comprehensive description of a landmark for users. In this paper we present an approach for summarizing a collection of landmark images from diverse viewpoints. First, we group landmark images with content overlap by viewpoint album (VA) generation. Second, we model the relative viewpoint of ... View full abstract»

    Vision-based lane detection is a critical component of modern automotive active safety systems. Although a number of robust and accurate lane estimation (LE) algorithms have been proposed, computationally efficient systems that can be realized on embedded platforms have been less explored and addressed. This paper presents a framework that incorporates contextual cues for LE to further enhance the... View full abstract»
