    Various important 3-D depth cues, such as focus, motion, occlusion, and disparity, can only be estimated reliably at distinct sparse image locations, such as edges and corners. Hence, for 2-D to 3-D video conversion, a stable and smooth sparse-to-dense conversion is required to propagate these sparse estimates to the complete video. To this end, optimization, segmentation, and triangulation-based ... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we propose a robust temporal-spatial decomposition (RTSD) model and discuss its applications in video processing. A video sequence usually possesses high correlations among and within its frames. Fully exploiting the temporal and spatial correlations enables efficient processing and better understanding of the video sequence. Considering that the video sequence typically contains sl...

    Content-based vehicle retrieval in unconstrained environment plays an important role in surveillance systems. However, due to large variations in viewing angle/position, illumination, occlusion, and background, traditional vehicle retrieval is extremely challenging. We approach this problem in a different way by rectifying vehicles from disparate views into the same reference view and searching th... View full abstract»

    This paper re-examines the problem of visual secret sharing for general access structures by using visual cryptograms of random grids (VCRG). Given a binary or color secret image shared by a set of n participants with a strong access structure, we devise two effective algorithms to produce a set of VCRG so that the members in each qualified set can reconstruct the secret image by superimpos...

    The distribution of copyrighted scalable video content to differing digital devices requires protection during rendering and transmission. In this paper, we propose a complete security system for H.264/scalable video coding (SVC) video codec and present a solution for the bit-rate and format compliance problems by careful selection of entropy coder syntax elements (bin-strings) for selective encry...

    Compressed sensing is the theory and practice of sub-Nyquist sampling of sparse signals of interest. Perfect reconstruction may then be possible with much fewer than the Nyquist required number of data. In this paper, in particular, we consider a video system where acquisition is carried out in the form of direct compressive sampling (CS) with no other form of sophisticated encoding. Therefore, th... View full abstract»

  • Iterative True Motion Estimation for Motion-Compensated Frame Interpolation

    This paper proposes a new motion-compensated frame interpolation (MCFI) method. The performance of MCFI is highly dependent on the accuracy of the estimated motion vectors (MVs). The proposed iterative motion estimation (ME) method estimates reliable MVs using linearity checking and restricted search areas. An adaptive interpolation method is also proposed to obtain MVs for blocks that do not have... View full abstract»

    Fractional sample interpolation with finite impulse response (FIR) filters is commonly used for motion-compensated prediction (MCP). The FIR filtering can be viewed as a signal decomposition using restricted basis functions. The concept of generalized interpolation provides a greater degree of freedom for selecting basis functions. We developed a generalized interpolation framework for MCP using f... View full abstract»

  • Energy Minimization for Wireless Video Transmissions With Deadline and Reliability Constraints

    In wireless video transmissions, encoded video frames are often large in data load and truncated into many transport packets (TPs) for reliable transmissions. These TPs are to be delivered before a deadline at certain reliability that depends on the importance of the video frame. High power and bitrate transmission schemes are often deployed to ensure low loss rate, but at the cost of substantial ... View full abstract»

  • Visual Comfort Enhancement for Stereoscopic Video Based on Binocular Fusion Characteristics

    A well-known problem in stereoscopic videos is visual fatigue. However, conventional depth adjustment methods provide little guidance in deciding the amount of depth control or determining the condition for depth control. We propose a depth adjustment method based on binocular fusion characteristics, where the fusion time is used as the parameter for adjustment. Visual comfort enhancement is imple...

  • A Dynamically Reconfigurable Pixel Processor System Based on Power/Energy-Performance-Accuracy Optimization

    We introduce a dynamically reconfigurable framework for implementing single-pixel operations. The system relies on a multiobjective optimization scheme that generates Pareto-optimal realizations in the power/energy-performance-accuracy (PPA/EPA) spaces. The Pareto-optimal realizations and their PPA/EPA values are stored in DDR-SDRAM and can be chosen dynamically to meet time-varying constraints. R... View full abstract»

    We address the problem of camera calibration for traffic scene surveillance, which supplies a connection between 2-D image features and 3-D measurement. It is helpful to deal with appearance distortion related to view angles, establish multiview correspondences, and make use of 3-D object models as prior information to enhance surveillance performance. A convenient and practical camera calibration... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a new region-based scheme for the estimation of weighted prediction (WP) parameter sets for encoders of the H.264/MPEG-4 AVC standard. The proposed scheme is specifically designed for handling local brightness variations (LBVs) in video scenes. It is achieved by making use of multiple WP parameter sets for various regions and assigning them to the same reference frame. An accur... View full abstract»
