    In this paper, we focus on leaky prediction layered video coding (LPLC). LPLC includes a scaled version of the enhancement layer within the motion compensation (MC) loop to improve the coding efficiency while maintaining graceful recovery in the presence of error drift. However, there exists a deficiency inherent in the LPLC structure, namely that the reconstructed video quality from both the enha... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we provide a technique that allows H264/AVC to achieve quality scalable coding by allowing the coder to produce different coded motion qualities. This technique is called block ordering scalability. It realizes scalability by exploiting the existing building blocks of the standard. It may need minor changes of the current standard, but in its simple form, presented here, it does not... View full abstract»

    For contribution and primary distribution of television, i.e., television transmission to broadcasting stations, parallel transmission links that include codecs are often set up for reliability. However, this configuration still faces the following issues: 1) during normal periods, the reserve link is totally wasted and 2) when a failure occurs, the disrupted signal continues to be transmitted unt...

    This paper presents a novel rate-distortion (R-D) model for rate control of video coding. First, we investigate the well-known heat conduction equation (HCE) in the heat conduction process for a thin bar. HCE describes the dynamic distribution of temperature in a thin bar using a partial differential equation (PDE). Motivated by the heat conduction process in a thin bar, a new rate transmission eq...

    Foveation is one of the nonuniform resolution properties of the human visual system. Recently, different foveation models are proposed and utilized for image and video coding, for the sake of bit-rate saving with no or minor perceptual quality distortion. In the first part of this paper, we propose an efficient and practical DCT-domain foveation model, which is deduced from existing experimental r... View full abstract»

  • Adaptive fast block-matching algorithm by switching search patterns for sequences with wide-range motion content

    Content with rapid, moderate, and slow motion is frequently mixed together in real video sequences. Until now, no fast block-matching algorithm (FBMA), including the well-known three-step search (TSS), the block-based gradient descent search (BBGDS), and the diamond search (DS), can efficiently remove the temporal redundancy of sequences with wide range motion content. This paper proposes an adapt... View full abstract»

    Compressed video bitstream is sensitive to channel errors that may degrade the reconstructed pictures severely. Error concealment is an effective approach to reduce the impact of errors, and it is implemented at the decoders. Its aim is to mask the effect of the missing blocks to create image or video of subjectively acceptable quality by using the spatial or/and temporal correlation. This paper p... View full abstract»

  • A robust error concealment technique using data hiding for image and video transmission over lossy channels

    A robust error concealment scheme using data hiding which aims at achieving high perceptual quality of images and video at the end-user despite channel losses is proposed. The scheme involves embedding a low-resolution version of each image or video frame into itself using spread-spectrum watermarking, extracting the embedded watermark from the received video frame, and using it as a reference for...

    In content-based video analysis, shot boundary detection (SBD) is a common first step which segments video data into elementary shots, each comprising a sequence of consecutive frames recording a video event or scene continuous in time and space. Many SBD methods have been proposed in the literature, and experimental results show that the existing methods work reasonably well for abrupt shot bound... View full abstract»

    Video semantic analysis is essential in video indexing and structuring. However, due to the lack of robust and generic algorithms, most of the existing works on semantic analysis are limited to specific domains. In this paper, we present a novel hidden Markove model (HMM)-based framework as a general solution to video semantic analysis. In the proposed framework, semantics in different granulariti...

    For the compression of stereo images, several techniques employing the concept of disparity compensation have been developed. In this paper, we present a new method for stereo-image compression which is based on a different paradigm. It relies on approximate matching of multiscale recurrent patterns, which is an extension of ordinary pattern matching, where an image block is represented using dila... View full abstract»

    This paper proposes an automatic object tracking method based on both object segmentation and motion estimation for real-time content-oriented video applications. The method focuses on the issues of speed of execution and reliability in the presence of noise, coding artifacts, shadows, occlusion, and object split. Objects are tracked based on the similarity of their features in successive frames. ... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we proposed a novel Coordinate Rotation Digital Computer (CORDIC) rotator algorithm that converges to the final target angle by adaptively executing appropriate iteration steps while keeping the scale factor virtually constant and completely predictable. The new feature of our scheme is that, depending on the input angle, the scale factor can assume only two values, viz., 1 and 1/&r... View full abstract»

    A zooming framework suitable for single-sensor digital cameras is introduced and analyzed in this paper. The proposed framework is capable of zooming and enlarging data acquired by single-sensor cameras that employ the Bayer pattern as a color filter array (CFA). The approach allows for operations on noise-free data at the hardware level. Complexity and cost implementation are thus greatly reduced... View full abstract»
