• PiCode: A New Picture-Embedding 2D Barcode

Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):3444 - 3458
| | PDF (7089 KB) | HTML

Nowadays, 2D barcodes have been widely used as an interface to connect potential customers and advertisement contents. However, the appearance of a conventional 2D barcode pattern is often too obtrusive for integrating into an aesthetically designed advertisement. Besides, no human readable information is provided before the barcode is successfully decoded. This paper proposes a new picture-embedd... View full abstract»

• Super-Resolution of Dynamic Scenes Using Sampling Rate Diversity

Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):3459 - 3474
| | PDF (11656 KB) | HTML Media

In earlier work, we proposed a super-resolution (SR) method that required the availability of two low resolution (LR) sequences corresponding to two different sampling rates, where images from one sequence were used as a basis to represent the polyphase components (PPCs) of the high resolution (HR) image, while the other LR sequences provided the reference LR image (to be super-resolved). The (sim... View full abstract»

• A Unified Framework for Salient Structure Detection by Contour-Guided Visual Search

Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):3475 - 3488
| | PDF (5250 KB) | HTML

We define the task of salient structure (SS) detection to unify the saliency-related tasks, such as fixation prediction, salient object detection, and detection of other structures of interest in cluttered environments. To solve such SS detection tasks, a unified framework inspired by the two-pathway-based search strategy of biological vision is proposed in this paper. First, a contour-based spati...

• Merge Frame Design for Video Stream Switching Using Piecewise Constant Functions

Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):3489 - 3504
| | PDF (4078 KB) | HTML

The ability to efficiently switch from one pre-encoded video stream to another (e.g., for bitrate adaptation or view switching) is important for many interactive streaming applications. Recently, stream-switching mechanisms based on distributed source coding (DSC) have been proposed. In order to reduce the overall transmission rate, these approaches provide a merge mechanism, where information is ... View full abstract»

• Image Zoom Completion

Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):3505 - 3517
Cited by:  Papers (1)
| | PDF (7019 KB) | HTML

We consider the problem of recovering a high-resolution image from a pair consisting of a complete low-resolution image and a high-resolution but incomplete one. We refer to this task as the image zoom completion problem. After discussing possible contexts in which this setting may arise, we introduce a nonlocal regularization strategy, giving full details concerning the numerical optimization of ...

• Learning Discriminatively Reconstructed Source Data for Object Recognition With Few Examples

Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):3518 - 3532
| | PDF (4882 KB) | HTML

We aim at improving the object recognition with few training data in the target domain by leveraging abundant auxiliary data in the source domain. The major issue obstructing knowledge transfer from source to target is the limited correlation between the two domains. Transferring irrelevant information from the source domain usually leads to performance degradation in the target domain. To address... View full abstract»

This paper proposes an approach referred as: iterative refinement of possibility distributions by learning (IRPDL) for pixel-based image classification. The IRPDL approach is based on the use of possibilistic reasoning concepts exploiting expert knowledge sources as well as ground possibilistic seeds learning. The set of seeds is constructed by incrementally updating and refining the possibility d... View full abstract»

• Facial Sketch Synthesis Using 2D Direct Combined Model-Based Face-Specific Markov Network

Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):3546 - 3561
| | PDF (4914 KB) | HTML

A facial sketch synthesis system is proposed, featuring a 2D direct combined model (2DDCM)-based face-specific Markov network. In contrast to the existing facial sketch synthesis systems, the proposed scheme aims to synthesize sketches, which reproduce the unique drawing style of a particular artist, where this drawing style is learned from a data set consisting of a large number of image/sketch p...

• A Non-Local Low-Rank Approach to Enforce Integrability

Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):3562 - 3571
| | PDF (3235 KB) | HTML

We propose a new approach to enforce integrability using recent advances in non-local methods. Our formulation consists in a sparse gradient data-fitting term to handle outliers together with a gradient-domain non-local low-rank prior. This regularization has two main advantages: 1) the low-rank prior ensures similarity between non-local gradient patches, which helps recovering high-quality clean ... View full abstract»

• Online Deformable Object Tracking Based on Structure-Aware Hyper-Graph

Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):3572 - 3584
Cited by:  Papers (6)
| | PDF (6499 KB) | HTML

Recent advances in online visual tracking focus on designing part-based model to handle the deformation and occlusion challenges. However, previous methods usually consider only the pairwise structural dependences of target parts in two consecutive frames rather than the higher order constraints in multiple frames, making them less effective in handling large deformation and occlusion challenges. ...

• Inter-Layer Prediction of Color in High Dynamic Range Image Scalable Compression

Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):3585 - 3596
| | PDF (2453 KB) | HTML

This paper presents a color inter-layer prediction (ILP) method for scalable coding of high dynamic range (HDR) video content with a low dynamic range (LDR) base layer. Relying on the assumption of hue preservation between the colors of an HDR image and its LDR tone mapped version, we derived equations for predicting the chromatic components of the HDR layer given the decoded LDR layer. Two color ... View full abstract»

• Contour Completion Without Region Segmentation

Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):3597 - 3611
| | PDF (5969 KB) | HTML Media

Contour completion plays an important role in visual perception, where the goal is to group fragmented low-level edge elements into perceptually coherent and salient contours. Most existing methods for contour completion have focused on pixelwise detection accuracy. In contrast, fewer methods have addressed the global contour closure effect, despite psychological evidences for its importance. This... View full abstract»

• Fast Multispectral Imaging by Spatial Pixel-Binning and Spectral Unmixing

Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):3612 - 3625
| | PDF (6636 KB) | HTML

Multispectral imaging system is of wide application in relevant fields for its capability in acquiring spectral information of scenes. Its limitation is that, due to the large number of spectral channels, the imaging process can be quite time-consuming when capturing high-resolution (HR) multispectral images. To resolve this limitation, this paper proposes a fast multispectral imaging framework ba... View full abstract»

• Dual Diversified Dynamical Gaussian Process Latent Variable Model for Video Repairing

Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):3626 - 3637
Cited by:  Papers (3)
| | PDF (4917 KB) | HTML

In this paper, we propose a dual diversified dynamical Gaussian process latent variable model (D3GPLVM) to tackle the video repairing issue. For preservation purposes, videos have to be conserved on media. However, storing on media, such as films and hard disks, can suffer from unexpected data loss, for instance, physical damage. So repairing of missing or damaged pixels is essential fo... View full abstract»

• Improving Intra Prediction in High-Efficiency Video Coding

Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):3671 - 3682
Cited by:  Papers (2)
| | PDF (4404 KB) | HTML

Intra prediction is an important tool in intra-frame video coding to reduce the spatial redundancy. In current coding standard H.265/high-efficiency video coding (HEVC), a copying-based method based on the boundary (or interpolated boundary) reference pixels is used to predict each pixel in the coding block to remove the spatial redundancy. We find that the conventional copying-based method can be... View full abstract»

• Connected Component Model for Multi-Object Tracking

Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):3698 - 3711
Cited by:  Papers (8)
| | PDF (3169 KB) | HTML Media

In multi-object tracking, it is critical to explore the data associations by exploiting the temporal information from a sequence of frames rather than the information from the adjacent two frames. Since straightforwardly obtaining data associations from multi-frames is an NP-hard multi-dimensional assignment (MDA) problem, most existing methods solve this MDA problem by either developing complicat...
