    This paper presents a novel formulation of video stabilization by directly solving for optimal image warps toward stabilized sequence. With the estimated shaky motion via long or short feature trajectories, our approach encodes another two steps, motion compensation and image warping, into a single global optimization process, rather than operating as two individual steps. This process is done onl... View full abstract»

    Detection of moving objects in a video captured by a freely moving camera is a challenging problem in computer vision. Most existing methods often assume that the background (BG) can be approximated by dominant single plane/multiple planes or impose significant geometric constraints on BG, or utilize a complex BG/foreground probabilistic model. Instead, we propose a computationally efficient algor... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we propose a novel concept in evaluating the visual information when perceiving natural images-the entropy of primitive (EoP). Sparse representation has been successfully applied in a wide variety of signal processing and analysis applications due to its high efficiency in dealing with rich varied and directional information contained in natural scenes. Inspired by this observation,... View full abstract»

    This paper proposes a simple but effective framework named quaternionic Weber local descriptor (QWLD) for color image feature extraction. Integrating quaternionic representation (QR) of the color image and Weber's law (WL), QWLD possesses both their superiorities. It uses QR to handle all color channels of the image in a holistic way while preserving their relations, and applies WL to ensure that ... View full abstract»

  • Face Sketch Synthesis From a Single Photo–Sketch Pair

    Face sketch synthesis is crucial in many practical applications, such as digital entertainment and law enforcement. Previous methods relying on many photo-sketch pairs have made great progress. State-of-the-art face sketch synthesis algorithms adopt Bayesian inference (BI) (e.g., Markov random fields) to select local sketch patches around corresponding position from a set of training data. However... View full abstract»

    Face sketch-photo synthesis technique has attracted growing attention in many computer vision applications, such as law enforcement and digital entertainment. Existing methods either simply perform the face sketch-photo synthesis on the holistic image or divide the face image into regular rectangular patches ignoring the inherent structure of the face image. In view of such situations, this paper ... View full abstract»

  • Robust Visual Tracking Using Exemplar-Based Detectors

    Tracking by detection has become an attractive tracking technique, which treats tracking as an object detection problem and trains a detector to separate the target object from the background in each frame. While this strategy is effective to some extent, we argue that the task in tracking should be searching for a specific object instance instead of an object category. Based on this viewpoint, a ...

  • Locality-Constrained Collaborative Model for Robust Visual Tracking

    This paper presents a novel discriminative, generative, and collaborative appearance model for robust object tracking. In contrast to existing methods, we use different appearance manifolds to represent the target in the discriminative and generative appearance models and propose a novel collaborative scheme to combine these two components. In particular: 1) for the discriminative component, we de... View full abstract»

  • Recursive Integer Cosine Transform for HEVC and Future Video Coding Standards

    A method to derive an order-2N integer cosine transform is presented in this paper. The proposed transform has orthogonal basis vectors and inherits the recursive structure from the discrete cosine transform such that an order-2N transform can be derived from an order-2(N-1 transform. In this paper, transforms up to order 32 are derived and implemented into High Ef... View full abstract»

    We propose an inter-view dependency-based rate control (RC) algorithm for 3D extension of high efficiency video coding (HEVC). First, considering the rate-distortion (R-D) dependency between the synthesized views and the input views (including texture videos and depth maps), a synthesized view distortion model is derived. Second, a novel distortion model for dependent views is proposed by investig... View full abstract»

  • Adapting Low-Bitrate Skip Mode in a Mobile Environment

    A method is introduced to enhance the High Efficiency Video Coding early skip decision process. The proposed method exploits visual acuity and high-velocity motion perception of the human visual system (HVS). The method determines coding units where the HVS is unlikely to notice the changes and hence can be skipped. In this paper, the focus is mobile devices, such as smart phones, where displays a...

    We propose a joint rate and power adaptation scheme to maximize the decoding quality for scalable video coding (SVC)-based video transmissions over multi-input multioutput (MIMO) systems. The rate adaptation in our proposed scheme includes selection of the best modulation and coding schemes, set of spatial channels, number of SVC layers (source coding rates), and their corresponding application la...

    Ultrahigh definition television is becoming increasingly attractive and practical with the doubled compression performance delivered by High Efficiency Video Coding (H.265/HEVC). Meanwhile, implementation of real-time video codecs is challenged by not only the huge throughput and memory bandwidth requirements but also the increased complexity of new algorithms. For motion compensation (MC) that is... View full abstract»

    Vehicle detection and vehicle viewpoint estimation are both crucial for assistive and autonomous driving systems. In this paper, we propose a soft discriminative mixture of viewpoint (SDMoV) models for joint vehicle detection and vehicle viewpoint estimation. The proposed SDMoV model is learned in two steps. First, a discriminative viewpoint-specific component model, which aims to maximize vehicle... View full abstract»
