    Subjective quality assessment is an essential component of modern image and video processing for both the validation of objective metrics and the comparison of coding methods. However, the standard procedures used to collect data can be prohibitively time consuming. One way of increasing the efficiency of data collection is to reduce the duration of test sequences from a 10-s length currently used... View full abstract»

  • Full-Reference Video Quality Estimation for Videos With Different Spatial Resolutions

    Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):1988 - 2000

    Full-reference (FR) video quality estimators (QEs) resize either the distorted input video or the reference video to compute the quality when these videos have different spatial resolutions. This resizing operation causes several limitations. Multiscale Image Quality Estimator (MIQE) overcomes those limitations for images, but it does not consider the temporal characteristics of video. In this pap... View full abstract»

    Image super-resolution (SR), a process to enhance image resolution, has important applications in satellite imaging, high-definition television, medical imaging, and so on. Many existing approaches use multiple low-resolution (LR) images to recover one high-resolution (HR) image. In this paper, we present an iterative scheme to solve single-image SR problems. It recovers a high-quality HR image fr... View full abstract»

    In recent years, the problem of how to more perceptually quantify visualizations of an object and a surface displayed in 3D space between the human eye and a display has been more prominent with rapid increase in the demand for 3D/ultrahigh-definition content. In order to quantify the content information in terms of human visual perception, it is necessary to measure the visual information of 2D a... View full abstract»

  • Multitarget Tracking Using Hough Forest Random Field

    Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):2028 - 2042
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (3214 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This paper presents a novel tracking-by-detection approach for multitarget tracking. There are two major steps in our framework: data association to form global tracklet association, followed by trajectory estimation to deal with the remaining gaps. In the first step, we formulate tracklet association as an inference problem in a Hough forest random field, which combines Hough forest and condition... View full abstract»

  • 3D Pose Tracking With Multitemplate Warping and SIFT Correspondences

    Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):2043 - 2055

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (5183 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Template warping is a popular technique in vision-based 3D motion tracking and 3D pose estimation due to its flexibility of being applicable to monocular video sequences. However, the method suffers from two major limitations that hamper its successful use in practice. First, it requires the camera to be calibrated prior to applying the method. Second, it may fail to provide good results if the in... View full abstract»

  • Deep Metric Learning for Visual Tracking

    In this paper, we propose a deep metric learning (DML) approach for robust visual tracking under the particle filter framework. Unlike most existing appearance-based visual trackers, which use hand-crafted similarity metrics, our DML tracker learns a nonlinear distance metric to classify the target object and background regions using a feed-forward neural network architecture. Since there are usua... View full abstract»

  • Rate Control via Adjustment of Lagrange Multiplier for Video Coding

    Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):2069 - 2078
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (2669 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this paper, we propose to improve the performance of the rate-control mechanism in video encoders by adaptively adjusting the Lagrange multiplier λ based on the stochastic subgradient method. Using this λ value for each coding unit, the quantization parameter (QP) is sought in the process of rate-distortion optimization (RDO). A log-linear model can be utilized to predict the most...

  • Adaptive Content Condensation Based on Grid Optimization for Thumbnail Image Generation

    Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):2079 - 2092
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (3335 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    An ideal thumbnail generator should effectively condense unimportant regions and keep the important content undeformed, completed, and at a proper scale, i.e., accuracy, completeness, and sufficiency. Each retargeting method has its own advantage for resizing arbitrary images. However, they often ignore the completeness and sufficiency for information presentation in thumbnails. In this paper, we ... View full abstract»

    Recently, multiview autostereoscopic dis-plays (MADs), which enable a limited glasses-free 3D experience, have become commercially available. The main problem of MADs is that they require several (typically eight or nine) views, while most of the 3D video content is in stereoscopic 3D today. In order to bridge this gap, the research community started to devise automatic multiview synthesis (MVS) m... View full abstract»

  • Video Anomaly Detection in Real Time on a Power-Aware Heterogeneous Platform

    Field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) and graphics processing units (GPUs) are often used when real-time performance in video processing is required. An accelerated processor is chosen based on task-specific priorities (power consumption, processing time, and detection accuracy), and this decision is normally made once at design time. All three of the characteristics are important, particularly i... View full abstract»

  • Partial Occlusion Handling in Pedestrian Detection With a Deep Model

    Part-based models have demonstrated their merit in object detection. However, there is a key issue to be solved on how to integrate the inaccurate scores of part detectors when there are occlusions, abnormal deformations, appearances, or illuminations. To handle the imperfection of part detectors, this paper presents a probabilistic pedestrian detection framework. In this framework, a deformable p... View full abstract»

    Passive multimedia forensics has become an active topic in recent years. However, less attention has been paid to video forensics. Research on video forensics, and especially on automatic detection of object-based video forgery, is still in its infancy. In this paper, we develop an approach for automatic identification and forged segment localization of object-based forged video encoded with advan... View full abstract»

  • Adaptive Block Coding Order for Intra Prediction in HEVC

    In this paper, an adaptive block coding order for intra prediction is proposed. Modern video coding standards, including the most recent High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC), utilize fixed scan orders in processing blocks during intra coding. However, the fixed scan orders typically result in residual blocks with noticeable edge patterns. That means the fixed scan orders cannot fully exploit the co... View full abstract»
