    The rate-constrained (R-D) motion estimation techniques have been presented to improve the conventional block-matching algorithm by using a joint rate and distortion criterion. This paper presents two motion estimation algorithms using Kalman filter to further enhance the performance of the conventional R-D motion estimation at a relative low computational cost. The Kalman filter exploits the corr... View full abstract»

    Reverse playback is the most common video cassette recording (VCR) function in digital video players and it involves playing video frames in reverse order. However, the predictive processing techniques employed in MPEG severely complicate the reverse-play operation. For displaying single frame during reverse playback, all frames from the previous I-frame to the requested frame must be sent by the ... View full abstract»

    In this paper, a configurable coding scheme is proposed and analyzed with respect to computational complexity and distortion (C-D). The major coding modules are analyzed in terms of computational C-D in the H.263 video coding framework. Based on the analyzed data, operational C-D curves are obtained through an exhaustive search, and the Lagrangian multiplier method. The proposed scheme satisfies t... View full abstract»

  • Spatio-temporal scalability-based motion-compensated 3-D subband/DCT video coding

    The existing standard video coding schemes support spatial scalability because of its prospective applications. Unfortunately, spatial scalable codecs produce high bit rate overhead as compared to a single layer coder. In this paper, we propose a spatio-temporal scalable video coding system based on motion compensated (MC) three-dimensional subband/discrete cosine transform (3-D SBC/DCT). This cod...

    Most model-based rate control solutions have the generally questionable assumption that video sequence is stationary. In addition, they often suffer from the fundamental problem of model parameter misestimation. In this paper, we propose a sequence-based frame-level bit allocation framework employing a rate-complexity model that has the capability of tracking the nonstationary characteristics in t...

  • Network-adaptive low-latency video communication over best-effort networks

    The quality of service limitation of today's best-effort networks poses major challenge for low-latency video communication. To combat network losses for real-time and on-demand video communication, which exhibits stronger dependency across packets, a network-adaptive coding scheme is employed to dynamically manage the packet dependency using optimal reference picture selection. The selection of t... View full abstract»

  • Information theory-based shot cut/fade detection and video summarization

    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1184 KB) |  | HTML iconHTML  

    New methods for detecting shot boundaries in video sequences and for extracting key frames using metrics based on information theory are proposed. The method for shot boundary detection relies on the mutual information (MI) and the joint entropy (JE) between the frames. It can detect cuts, fade-ins and fade-outs. The detection technique was tested on the TRECVID2003 video test set having different... View full abstract»

  • Video filtering with Fermat number theoretic transforms using residue number system

    We investigate image and video convolutions based on Fermat number transform (FNT) modulo q=2M+1 where M is an integer power of two. These transforms are found to be ideal for image convolutions, except that the choices for the word length, restricted by the transform modulus, are rather limited. We discuss two methods to overcome this limitation. First, we allow M to be an arbitrary in... View full abstract»

    This paper deals with disparity estimation and the reconstruction of intermediate views from stereoscopic images. Using block-wise maximum-likelihood (ML) disparity estimation, it was found that the Laplacian model outperformed the Cauchy and Gaussian models in terms of disparity compensation errors and the number of correspondence matches. The disparity values in occluded regions were then determ... View full abstract»

    This paper presents low-cost, purpose optimized discrete wavelet transform-based image compressors for future spacecrafts and microsatellites. The hardware solution proposed here exploits a modified set partitioning in hierarchical trees algorithm and ensures that appropriate reconstructed image qualities can be achieved also for compression ratios over 100:1. Several implementations are presented... View full abstract»

    A visible watermark may convey ownership information that identifies the originator of image and video. A potential application scenario for visible watermarks was proposed by IBM where an image is originally embedded with a visible watermark before posting on the web for free observation and download. The watermarked image which serves as a "teaser." The watermark can be removed to recreate the u... View full abstract»

    This paper proposes a generic model for unsupervised extraction of viewer's attention objects from color images. Without the full semantic understanding of image content, the model formulates the attention objects as a Markov random field (MRF) by integrating computational visual attention mechanisms with attention object growing techniques. Furthermore, we describe the MRF by a Gibbs random field... View full abstract»

    A multihypothesis motion compensated prediction (MHMCP) scheme, which predicts a block from a weighted superposition of more than one reference blocks, is proposed and analyzed for error resilient visual communication in this research. By combining these reference blocks effectively, MHMCP can enhance the error resilient capability of compressed video as well as achieve a coding gain. In particula... View full abstract»
