    Visual quality of compressed video sequences depends on factors including spatial texture content and cognition-based factors such as prior knowledge and task in hand. The MOSp metric is a full reference objective quality metric which predicts perceived quality of sequences with video compression-induced impairments based on the spatial texture content and the mean squared error between original a...

    This paper studies source and correlation models for distributed video coding (DVC). It first considers a two-state HMM, i.e., a Gilbert-Elliott process, to model the bit-planes produced by DVC schemes. A statistical analysis shows that this model allows us to accurately capture the memory present in the video bit-planes. The achievable rate bounds are derived for these ergodic sources, first assu... View full abstract»

    The research context of this paper is dynamic texture analysis and characterization. Many dynamic textures can be modeled as large scale propagating wavefronts and local oscillating phenomena. After introducing a formal model for dynamic textures, the morphological component analysis (MCA) approach with a well-chosen dictionary is used to retrieve the components of dynamic textures. We define two ... View full abstract»

    Multiple description coding (MDC) is a technique where multiple streams from a source video are generated, each individually decodable and mutually refinable. MDC is a promising solution to overcome packet loss in video transmission over noisy channels, particularly for real-time applications in which retransmission of lost information is not practical. A problem with conventional MDC is that the ... View full abstract»

    Video surveillance systems are becoming increasingly important for crime investigation and deterrence, and the number of cameras installed in public space is increasing. However, many cameras installed at fixed positions are required to observe a wide and complex area. In order to efficiently observe such a wide area at lower cost, mobile robots are an attractive option. In this paper, we propose ... View full abstract»

    Three different advanced adaptation techniques for improving the video perception of users are proposed in this paper. The proposed techniques exploit different adaptation decision-taking and adaptation approaches to adapt particular core parameters while considering diverse contextual information and constraints to achieve improved video perception of users. The first proposed technique employs a... View full abstract»

    Adaptive interpolation filtering for sub-pel motion compensation is one of key techniques of ITU-T key technology area (KTA) codec. However, the adaptive interpolation filtering has a limitation in coding efficiency because of its frame-based update strategy of filter coefficients. Although switched interpolation filter with offset is presented as a sort of block-adaptive filtering for KTA codec, ... View full abstract»

  • Zero-Quantized Inter DCT Coefficient Prediction for Real-Time Video Coding

    Several algorithms were proposed to predict the zero-quantized DCT coefficients and reduce the computational complexity of transform and quantization. It is observed that these prediction algorithms achieve good performance for all-zero-quantized DCT blocks. However, the efficiency is much lower for non-all-zero-quantized DCT blocks. This paper proposes an algorithm to improve the prediction effic... View full abstract»

    The last few years have seen the use of photo response non-uniformity noise (PRNU), a unique fingerprint of imaging sensors, in various digital forensic applications such as source device identification, content integrity verification, and authentication. However, the use of a color filter array for capturing only one of the three color components per pixel introduces color interpolation noise, wh... View full abstract»

    In this paper, a high throughput context-based adaptive binary arithmetic coding decoder design is proposed. This decoder employs a syntax element prediction method to solve pipeline hazard problems. It also uses a new hybrid memory two-symbol parallel decoding in order to enhance performance as well as to reduce costs. The critical path delay of the two-symbol binary arithmetic decoding engine is... View full abstract»

    Low-level vision tasks pose an outstanding challenge in terms of computational effort: pixel-wise operations require high-performance architectures to achieve real-time processing. Nowadays, diverse technologies permit a high level of parallelism and in this way researchers can address more and more complex on-chip low-level vision-feature extraction. In the state of the art, different architectur... View full abstract»

    We propose a content-based 3-D mosaic (CB3M) representation for long video sequences of 3-D and dynamic urban scenes captured by a camera on a mobile platform. In the first phase, a set of parallel-perspective (pushbroom) mosaics with varying viewing directions is generated to capture both the 3-D and dynamic aspects of the scene under the camera coverage. In the second phase, a segmentation-based... View full abstract»

    Multiple description video coding (MDC) is one of the approaches for reducing the detrimental effects caused by transmission over error-prone networks. In this paper, a MDC model based on hierarchical B pictures is proposed to optimize the tradeoff between coding efficiency and error resilience. The model produces two descriptors by applying different MDC techniques such as duplication, spatial sp... View full abstract»
