    A new rate control algorithm is proposed, which is based on so-called ρ-domain rate-distortion analysis . ρ is defined as the percentage of zero discrete cosine transform coefficients in a frame, and is known to be correlated with the compressed bit rate. Using a simple rate estimation method based on a variable length code table, the linear rate model of rate-ρ relation is constructed... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a parallel architecture for the Embedded Block Coding (EBC) in JPEG 2000. The architecture is based on the proposed word-level EBC algorithm. By processing all the bit planes in parallel, the state variable memories for the context formation (CF) can be completely eliminated. The length of the FIFO (first-in first-out) between the CF and the arithmetic encoder (AE) is optimized... View full abstract»

    The processing time needed for motion estimation usually accounts for a significant part of the overall processing time of the video encoder. To improve the video encoding speed, reducing the execution time for motion estimation process is essential. Parallel implementation of video encoding systems using either the software or the hardware approach has attracted much attention in the area of real... View full abstract»

    In object-based video encoding, the encoding of the video data is decoupled into the encoding of shape, motion, and texture information, which enables certain functionalities, like content-based interactivity and content-based scalability. The fundamental problem, however, of how to jointly encode this separate information to reach the best coding efficiency has not been studied thoroughly. In thi... View full abstract»

    This paper studies efficient bandwidth resource allocation for streaming multiple MPEG-4 fine granularity scalability (FGS) video programs to multiple users. We begin with a simple single-user scenario and propose a rate-control algorithm that has low delay and achieves an excellent tradeoff between the average visual distortion and the quality fluctuation. The proposed algorithm employs two weigh... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we present an implementation of the image compression routine set partitioning in hierarchical trees (SPIHT) in reconfigurable logic. A discussion on why adaptive logic is required, as opposed to an application specific integrated circuit (ASIC), is provided along with background material on the image compression algorithm. We analyzed several discrete wavelet transform (DWT) archit... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we propose an optimal key frame representation scheme based on global statistics for video shot retrieval. Each pixel in this optimal key frame is constructed by considering the probability of occurrence of those pixels at the corresponding pixel position among the frames in a video shot. Therefore, this constructed key frame is called temporally maximum occurrence frame (TMOF), whi... View full abstract»

    Mathematical morphology operations are applied in many real-time applications, such as video segmentation. For real-time requirement, efficient hardware implementation is necessary. This paper proposes a new architecture named Partial-Result-Reuse (PRR) architecture for mathematical morphological operations with flat structuring elements. Partial results generated during calculation process are ke... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we present a uniform framework for optimal multiple video object bit allocation in MPEG-4. We combine the rate-distortion (R-D) models for the texture and shape information of arbitrarily shaped video objects to develop the joint texture-shape R-D models. The dynamic programming technique is applied to optimize the bit allocation for the multiple video objects. The simulation result... View full abstract»

  • Error-resilient region-of-interest video coding

    An error resilient video coding method is proposed. It yields less degradation, caused by data loss, in areas of the frame which are of greater interest compared to the rest of the frame. This is achieved by employing a nonlinear transform that duplicates macroblocks inside the region of interest (ROI). This increased redundancy for ROI yields a high quality reconstruction of ROI even with missing... View full abstract»

    JPEG 2000 offers critical advantages over other still image compression schemes at the price of increased computational complexity. Hardware-accelerated performance is a key to successful development of real time JPEG 2000 solutions for applications such as digital cinema and digital home theatre. The crucial role in the whole processing plays embedded block coding with optimized truncation becaus... View full abstract»
