    We present an encoding framework which exploits semantics for video content delivery. The video content is organized based on the idea of main content message. In the work reported in this paper, the main content message is extracted from the video data through semantic video analysis, an application-dependent process that separates relevant information from non relevant information. We use here s... View full abstract»

    An approach to knowledge-assisted semantic video object detection based on a multimedia ontology infrastructure is presented. Semantic concepts in the context of the examined domain are defined in an ontology, enriched with qualitative attributes (e.g., color homogeneity), low-level features (e.g., color model components distribution), object spatial relations, and multimedia processing methods (e...

    In this paper, we propose a novel audio-visual feature-based framework for event detection in broadcast video of multiple different field sports. Features indicating significant events are selected and robust detectors built. These features are rooted in characteristics common to all genres of field sports. The evidence gathered by the feature detectors is combined by means of a support vector mac... View full abstract»

    Efficient online visualization of three-dimensional (3-D) textured models is essential for a variety of applications including not only games and e-commerce, but also heritage and medicine. To visualize 3-D objects online, it is necessary to quickly adapt both mesh and texture to the available computational or network resources. Earlier research showed that after reaching a minimum required mesh d... View full abstract»

  • MINMAX optimal video summarization

    The need for video summarization originates primarily from a viewing time constraint. A shorter version of the original video sequence is desirable in a number of applications. Clearly, a shorter version is also necessary in applications where storage, communication bandwidth and/or power are limited. In this paper, our work is based on a MINMAX optimization formulation with viewing time, frame sk... View full abstract»

  • Rate-distortion hint tracks for adaptive video streaming

    We present a technique for low-complexity rate-distortion (R-D) optimized adaptive video streaming based on the concept of rate-distortion hint track (RDHT). RDHTs store the precomputed characteristics of a compressed media source that are crucial for high performance online streaming but difficult to compute in real time. This enables low-complexity adaptation to variations in transport condition... View full abstract»

  • Classification-based multidimensional adaptation prediction for scalable video coding using subjective quality evaluation

    Scalable video coding offers a flexible representation for video adaptation in multiple dimensions comprising spatial detail and temporal resolution, thus providing great benefits for universal media access (UMA) applications. However, currently most of the approaches address the multidimensional adaptation (MDA) problem in an ad hoc manner. One challenging issue affecting the systematic MDA solut... View full abstract»

  • A framework for fully format-independent adaptation of scalable bit streams

    This paper presents a framework for modeling and adaptation of arbitrary scalable multimedia bit streams in a manner that is fully format agnostic ("universal transcoding"). It is entitled structured scalable metaformats (SSM), and is based on establishing a universal model for all scalable bit streams, which in turn allows a compact specification of the set of allowed adaptations, and also how th...

  • Submacroblock motion compensation for fast down-scale transcoding of compressed video

    For downscale (spatial resolution reduction) video transcoding, previous work has shown that motion vectors in the input video can be reused so that the costly motion estimation process can be avoided. Since the derived motion vectors may not be perfectly aligned with the input ones, a drift compensation loop consisting of inverse transform and motion compensation (or transform domain motion compe...

  • Joint optimization of the motion estimation module and the up/down scaler in transcoders

    A joint design scheme is proposed to optimize the up/down scaler and the motion vector estimation module in the transcoder system. The proposed scheme first optimizes the resolution scaler for a fixed motion vector, and then a new motion vector is estimated for the fixed scaler. These two steps are iteratively repeated until they reach a local optimum solution. In the optimization of the scaler, w... View full abstract»
