    In this paper, we present a frame rate upconversion method using optical flow motion estimation and a patch-based reconstruction scheme. First, forward and backward motion vectors (MVs) are obtained using an optical flow algorithm, and reconstructed versions of the current and previous frames are generated by our patch-based reconstruction scheme. Using the original and reconstructed versions of t... View full abstract»

  • Joint Chroma Downsampling and Upsampling for Screen Content Image

    Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):1595 - 1609

    Screen content images are originally captured in a full-chroma format. The chroma downsampling, which is commonly applied to the chroma component in screen content image representation and processing (e.g., YUV4:2:0 compression), will significantly degrade the image quality and create annoying artifacts such as blur and color shifting. To tackle this problem, in this paper we propose luma aware ch... View full abstract»

  • Reversible Data Hiding in JPEG Images

    Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):1610 - 1621

    Among various digital image formats used in daily life, the Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG) is the most popular. Therefore, reversible data hiding (RDH) in JPEG images is important and useful for many applications such as archive management and image authentication. However, RDH in JPEG images is considerably more difficult than that in uncompressed images because there is less information... View full abstract»

    This paper proposes lossless, reversible, and combined data hiding schemes for ciphertext images encrypted by public-key cryptosystems with probabilistic and homomorphic properties. In the lossless scheme, the ciphertext pixels are replaced with new values to embed the additional data into several least significant bit planes of ciphertext pixels by multilayer wet paper coding. Then, the embedded ... View full abstract»

    Stereo matching is a challenging problem, and high-accuracy stereo matching is still required in various computer vision applications, e.g., 3-D scanning, autonomous navigation, and 3-D reconstruction. Therefore, we present a novel image-guided stereo matching algorithm, which employs the efficient combined matching cost and multistep disparity refinement, to improve the accuracy of existing local...

  • Patch-Set-Based Representation for Alignment-Free Image Set Classification

    Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):1646 - 1658
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2923 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This paper presents a patch-set-based sparse representation for image set classification. Compared with image-based image set representation, our patch-set-based representation is alignment free and thus has an advantage for tasks like video-based face recognition, image-set-based object recognition, and video-based hand gesture recognition, where precious alignment is usually difficult or even im...

    Three-dimensional hand gesture recognition has attracted increasing research interests in computer vision, pattern recognition, and human-computer interaction. The emerging depth sensors greatly inspired various hand gesture recognition approaches and applications, which were severely limited in the 2D domain with conventional cameras. This paper presents a survey of some recent works on hand gest... View full abstract»

  • Facial Image Hallucination Through Coupled-Layer Neighbor Embedding

    Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):1674 - 1684
    Cited by:  Papers (22)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3605 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    As the facial image captured by a low-cost camera is typically very low resolution (LR), blurring, and noisy, traditional neighbor-embedding-based facial image hallucination methods from one single manifold (i.e., the LR image manifold) fail to reliably estimate the intention geometrical structure, consequently leading to a bias to the image reconstruction result. In this paper, we introduce the n... View full abstract»

    Learning-based face descriptors have constantly improved the face recognition performance. Compared with the hand-crafted features, learning-based features are considered to be able to exploit information with better discriminative ability for specific tasks. Motivated by the recent success of deep learning, in this paper, we extend the original shallow face descriptors to deep discriminant face f... View full abstract»

  • Dual Group Structured Tracking

    Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):1697 - 1708
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2645 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The sparse representation (SR)-based tracking framework generally considers the testing candidates and dictionary atoms individually, thus failing to model the structured information within data. In this paper, we present a robust tracking framework by exploiting the dual group structure of both candidate samples and dictionary templates, and formulate the SR at group level. The similar samples ar... View full abstract»

  • Robust Visual Tracking via Least Soft-Threshold Squares

    Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):1709 - 1721

    In this paper, we propose an online tracking algorithm based on a novel robust linear regression estimator. In contrast to existing methods, the proposed least soft-threshold squares (LSS) algorithm models the error term with the Gaussian-Laplacian distribution, which can be efficiently solved. For visual tracking, the Gaussian-Laplacian noise assumption enables our LSS model to handle the normal ... View full abstract»

  • Novel Chroma Subsampling Strategy Based on Mathematical Optimization for Compressing Mosaic Videos With Arbitrary RGB Color Filter Arrays in H.264/AVC and HEVC

    Cited by:  Papers (1)

    To save manufacturing cost, most color digital video cameras employ a single-sensor technology with a red-green- blue (RGB) color filter array (CFA) to capture real-world scenes. Due to only one primary color measured at each pixel location, the captured videos are usually referred to as the mosaic videos. For the purposes of economical storage and transmission, it is very important to achieve a g... View full abstract»

    Several different methods have been investigated in recent years, aiming at computational complexity reduction and scaling of High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) software implementations. However, maintaining the encoding time per frame or group of pictures (GOPs) below an adjustable upper bound is still an open research issue. A solution for this problem is devised in this paper based on a set of... View full abstract»

    Due to the popularity of online video sharing Web sites such as YouTube, millions of users have treated online video as a source of information and entertainment. Therefore, video annotation has evoked great interest in the past few years. In this paper, we propose a four-step approach to automatically annotate video shots with sentences. The first step is video preprocessing, converting video sho... View full abstract»

    High-quality and cost-efficient image upscaling design is very important for many real-time video processing applications, especially when the display panel resolution reaches ultrahigh definition. Compared with New Edge-Directed Interpolation (NEDI) based implicit edge directional upscaling, explicit methods require less computational resource and more easily reach real-time performance, especial...

    Pedestrian detection is an important yet challenging task. In this paper, a pedestrian codetection framework for binocular stereo sequences is proposed. Binocular vision and consecutive frames can provide more information than a single image. That information can be used to improve detection performance by reducing the number of candidate detection windows with low confidence or enhancing the high... View full abstract»
