    This paper presents a novel approach for automatic recognition of group activities for video surveillance applications. We propose to use a group representative to handle the recognition with a varying number of group members, and use an asynchronous hidden Markov model (AHMM) to model the relationship between people. Furthermore, we propose a group activity detection algorithm which can handle bo... View full abstract»

    A new framework, termed spatially aligned pyramid matching, is proposed for near duplicate image identification. The proposed method robustly handles spatial shifts as well as scale changes, and is extensible for video data. Images are divided into both overlapped and non-overlapped blocks over multiple levels. In the first matching stage, pairwise distances between blocks from the examined image ... View full abstract»

    We present a novel spatio-temporal descriptor to efficiently represent a video object for the purpose of content-based video retrieval. Features from spatial along with temporal information are integrated in a unified framework for the purpose of retrieval of similar video shots. A sequence of orthogonal processing, using a pair of 1-D multiscale and multispectral filters, on the space-time volume... View full abstract»

    Wireless video multicast enables delivery of popular events to many mobile users in a bandwidth efficient manner. However, providing good and stable video quality to a large number of users with varying channel conditions remains elusive. In this paper, an integration of layered video coding, packet level forward error correction, and two-hop relaying is proposed to enable efficient and robust vid... View full abstract»

    Due to the visually polysemous barrier, videos and images may be annotated by multiple tags. Discovering the correlations among different tags can significantly help predicting precise labels for videos and images. Many of recent studies toward multi-label learning construct a linear subspace embedding with encoded multi-label information, such that data points sharing many common labels tend to b...

  • Fast Decision of Block Size, Prediction Mode, and Intra Block for H.264 Intra Prediction

    The spatial-domain intra prediction scheme of H.264 has high computational complexity, especially for the High Profile as it incorporates the additional intra 8 × 8 prediction mode. To address this issue, we explore the hierarchy of H.264 mode decision process in this paper and adopt an approach that is in synchrony with the mode decision hierarchy. In particular, we propose a variance-base... View full abstract»

    Background subtraction (BS) is an efficient technique for detecting moving objects in video sequences. A simple BS process involves building a model of the background and extracting regions of the foreground (moving objects) with the assumptions that the camera remains stationary and there exist no movements in the background. These assumptions restrict the applicability of BS methods to real-time... View full abstract»

  • Cauchy-Density-Based Basic Unit Layer Rate Controller for H.264/AVC

    The rate control problem has been extensively studied in parallel to the development of the different video coding standards. The bit allocation via Cauchy-density-based rate-distortion modeling of the discrete cosine transform coefficients has proved to be one of the most accurate solutions at picture level. Nevertheless, in some specific applications operating in real-time low-delay environments... View full abstract»

  • Real-Time De-Interlacing for H.264-Coded HD Videos

    It is very challenging to de-interlace high-definition videos in real time, as both good visual quality and low complexity should be fulfilled, which, however, are conflicting. To resolve the conflict, a syntax-based de-interlacer is proposed specially for H.264-coded videos, by which the values of the syntax elements (SE) in H.264 bitstreams, such as macroblock-type, intra-prediction modes, and m...

    A prediction error prioritizing-based normalized partial distortion search algorithm for fast motion estimation is proposed in this letter. The distortion behavior of each pixel in a macroblock is first analyzed to point out the priority/order of sum of absolute difference calculation. Afterward, the normalized partial distortion search algorithm is applied for half-stop of the distortion calculat... View full abstract»

  • An Efficient Priority-Based Reference Frame Selection Method for Fast Motion Estimation in H.264/AVC

    The H.264/AVC achieves higher coding performance than the previous video coding standards, such as MPEG-2 and MPEG-4. In order to achieve this improved coding performance, H.264 adopts various advanced techniques including multiple reference frame motion estimation (MRF-ME), which requires very heavy encoding complexity in proportion to the number of reference frames. In this letter, we propose an... View full abstract»

    In the paper “An analog 2-D DCT processor,” authors have presented a row-column method for computing 2-D discrete cosine transform (DCT). They have reported minimum peak signal-to-noise ratios (PSNR) 40.6 dB and 31.4 dB for 4-point and 8-point DCT, respectively. The main objective of this comment letter is to point out that those PSNR values are not correctly calculated. The actual m... View full abstract»
