    This paper proposes efficient techniques to compress a depth video by taking into account coding artifacts, spatial resolution, and dynamic range of the depth data. Due to abrupt signal changes on object boundaries, a depth video compressed by conventional video coding standards often introduces serious coding artifacts over object boundaries, which severely affect the quality of a synthesized vie...

    View-invariant action recognition is one of the most challenging problems in computer vision. Various representations are being devised for matching actions across different viewpoints to achieve view invariance. In this paper, we explore the invariance property of temporal order of action instances during action execution and utilize it for devising a new view-invariant action recognition approac...

    We propose a cross-layer design framework for efficient broadcasting scalable H.264 videos over the downlink multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing systems. The objective is to maximize the average peak signal-to-noise ratio of the received video streams by jointly optimizing video layer extraction, subcarrier allocation, modulation and coding, and transmi...

    Pedestrian detection based on video analysis is a key functionality in automated surveillance systems. In this paper, we present efficient detection metrics that consider the fact that human movement presents distinctive motion patterns. Contrary to several methods that perform an intrablob analysis based on motion masks, we approach the problem without necessarily considering the periodic pixel m... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we propose a novel scheme for human action recognition that combines the advantages of both local and global representations. We explore human silhouettes for human action representation by taking into account the correlation between sequential poses in an action. A modified bag-of-words model, named bag of correlated poses, is introduced to encode temporally local features of actio... View full abstract»

    A new method for detecting and correcting color-timing mismatch in digital film is proposed. This method is based on a physical model which accounts for the absorption of light by the different layers of the film. The whole process consists of five sequential stages: shot change detection, registration, degraded zone detection, and unreliable motion detection and correction. One of the main issues...

    In this paper, we present an adaptive joint trilateral filter (AJTF), which consists of domain, range, and depth filters. The AJTF is used for the joint enhancement of images and depth maps, which is achieved by suppressing the noise and sharpening the edges simultaneously. For improving the sharpness of the image and depth map, the AJTF parameters, the offsets, and the standard deviations of the ... View full abstract»

  • Intra Coding With Adaptive Partial Reconstruction

    Intra prediction improves coding performance by reducing inter pixel redundancy. However, to accommodate the use of block transforms, not all pixels can be predicted from reconstructed pixels that are located close to themselves. This causes prediction performance to suffer as pixel values further apart are less correlated. This paper presents additional intra coding modes designed with the goal o... View full abstract»

    Dynamic textures are important parts of natural video signals that usually generate an enormous size of high-dimensional data; therefore, effective representation methods are needed for relevant applications. This paper presents a new method for compact representation of high-dimensional data based on tensor decomposition, which can preserve the native form of the data. By treating the high-dimens...

    This paper presents a hardware implementation of a digital watermarking system that can insert invisible, semifragile watermark information into compressed video streams in real time. The watermark embedding is processed in the discrete cosine transform domain. To achieve high performance, the proposed system architecture employs pipeline structure and uses parallelism.

    This paper presents a video retargeting method considering both spatial and temporal coherence for resizing videos. Our algorithm is based on a novel matching-area-based temporal energy adjustment that allows per-frame seam carving to remove the optimal pixels to achieve spatially and temporally continuous resized videos. The temporal energy adjustment allows the seam to track the object it previo... View full abstract»

    Automatic license plate recognition (ALPR) is the extraction of vehicle license plate information from an image or a sequence of images. The extracted information can be used with or without a database in many applications, such as electronic payment systems (toll payment, parking fee payment), and freeway and arterial monitoring systems for traffic surveillance. The ALPR uses either a color, blac... View full abstract»

    This paper considers the problem of recognizing activities as they occur in surveillance video. Activities are high-level nonatomic semantic concepts which may have complex temporal structure. Activities are not easily identifiable using image features, but rather by the recognition of their composing events. Unfortunately, these composing events may only be observed up to a particular certainty. ... View full abstract»

    Geometry partitioning for video coding involves establishing a partition line boundary within each block-shaped region and applying motion-compensated prediction to the two sub-regions created by the partition line. This paper presents techniques for enhancing the effectiveness and reducing the complexity of geometry partitioning schemes. A texture-difference-based approach is described to simplif...

    In this paper, we have proposed a design strategy for the derivation of memory-efficient architecture for multilevel 2-D DWT. Using the proposed design scheme, we have derived a convolution-based generic architecture for the computation of three-level 2-D DWT based on Daubechies (Daub) as well as biorthogonal filters. The proposed structure does not involve frame-buffer. It involves line-buffers o... View full abstract»

    The 3-D TV active shutter glasses (SGs) technology requires the communication of the sync timing for time-sequential frame synchronization, in contrast to the syncless film-type patterned retarder approach. To advance our previous work based on the fractional-order timer, this paper proposes a fractional-order synchronizer, including an adaptive sync reconstructor (ASR) based on FRT for syncless f...
