    Variable block size motion compensation has been adopted by the emerging video coding standard H.264. It can represent the motion characteristic in a macroblock more accurately and, therefore, reduces the prediction error to achieve high compression gains. On the other hand, it causes high computational complexity in motion estimation at the encoder. The motion estimation exhaustively performed ov... View full abstract»

    A new scheme for coding both the shape and texture of arbitrarily shaped visual objects is presented. Based on set partitioning on hierarchical trees (SPIHT), the proposed Shape and Texture SPIHT (ST-SPIHT) employs a novel implementation of the shape-adaptive discrete wavelet transform (SA-DWT) using in-place lifting, along with parallel coding of texture coefficients and shape mask pixels to crea...

    This paper presents a simple and low-cost analog architecture for computing 2-D discrete cosine transform (2-D DCT). The proposed circuit is aimed for low-power or very high-speed moderate image quality video compression applications. The design uses current-mode signaling and has two separate 1-D DCT kernels, thus no memory is needed for storing intermediate results. Moreover, the circuit works i... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we propose a framework to transmit multiple scalable video programs over downlink multiuser orthogonal frequency division multiplex (OFDM) networks in real time. The framework explores the scalability of the video codec and multidimensional diversity of multiuser OFDM systems to achieve the optimal service objectives subject to constraints on delay and limited system resources. We c... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we describe a configurable content-based MPEG video authentication scheme, which is robust to typical video transcoding approaches, namely frame resizing, frame dropping and requantization. By exploiting the synergy between cryptographic signature, forward error correction (FEC) and digital watermarking, the generated content-based message authentication code (MAC or keyed crypto ha...

  • Effective Fades and Flashlight Detection Based on Accumulating Histogram Difference

    Scene change detection is a fundamental step in automatic video indexing, browsing and retrieval. Fade in and fade out are two kinds of gradually changing scenes which are difficult to be detected in comparison with the abruptly changing scenes. The salient character of flashlight effect is the luminance change, which is caused by abrupt appearance or disappearance of the illumination source. Perf... View full abstract»

  • Fast Stereo Matching Algorithm for Intermediate View Reconstruction of Stereoscopic Television Images

    This paper presents a new stereo matching algorithm for intermediate view reconstruction of stereoscopic television images. The proposed stereo matching algorithm reduces the computational burden of disparity estimation by assuming that the disparity is constant over blocks of NtimesN pixels. The disparity per block is hierarchically estimated. A cost function deduced from maximum a posteriori dis... View full abstract»

  • Adaptive Intra-Frame Assignment and Bit-Rate Estimation for Variable GOP Length in H.264

    Video sequences usually have many scene changes and contain rapid motion. The coding efficiency of such sequences is generally low, and the image quality fluctuates. If the rapid motion and scene changes are taken into consideration for video compression, the compression performance can be improved and the fluctuation of image quality can be reduced. An adaptive group of picture (GOP)-length struc... View full abstract»

  • Combined Frame Memory Motion Compensation for Video Coding

    The frame memory has long been the dominant component in a video decoder in terms of energy, area, and latency. We proposed a non-combined frame memory motion compensation (CFMMC) for video decoding which facilitates the characteristic of the perfect-matched macroblock (MB) to avoid unnecessary memory access and to save energy. The statistic result confirms that some sequences have more than 70% o... View full abstract»

  • Rounding Mismatch Between Spatial-Domain and Transform-Domain Video Codecs

    The mismatch between a spatial-domain encoder and a transform-domain decoder due to rounding can cause serious video quality degradation after a series of inter-coded frames. The mismatch is rooted on the fact that rounding is a nonlinear operation, and hence its equivalent in the transform domain does not exist. We analyze the mathematical property of the rounding operation and propose a practica... View full abstract»

  • A Semi-Fragile Lossless Digital Watermarking Scheme Based on Integer Wavelet Transform

    In this paper, a new semi-fragile lossless digital watermarking scheme based on integer wavelet transform is presented. The wavelet family applied is the 5/3 filter bank which serves as the default transformation in the JPEG2000 standard for image lossless compression. As a result, the proposed scheme can be integrated into the JPEG2000 standard smoothly. Different from the only existing semi-frag... View full abstract»

    Many researchers have studied reversible data hiding techniques in recent years and most have proposed reversible data hiding schemes that guarantee only that the original cover image can be reconstructed completely. Once the secret data are embedded in the compression domain and the receiver wants to store the cover image in a compression mode to save storage space, the receiver must extract the ...
