Robust video transmission using data hiding

Video transmission over noisy wireless channels leads to errors on video, which degrades the visual quality notably and makes error concealment an indispensable job. In the literature, there are several error concealment techniques based on estimating the lost parts of the video from the available data. Utilization of data hiding for this problem, which seems to be an alternative of predicting the lost data, provides a reserve information about the video to the receiver while unchanging the transmitted bit-stream syntax; hence, improves the reconstruction video quality without significant extra channel utilization. A complete error resilient video transmission codec is proposed, utilizing imperceptible embedded information for combined detecting, resynchronization and reconstruction of the errors and lost data. The data, which is imperceptibly embedded into the video itself at the encoder, is extracted from the video at the decoder side to be utilized in error concealment. A spatial domain error recovery technique, which hides edge orientation information of a block, and a resynchronization technique, which embeds bit length of a block into other blocks are combined, as well as some parity information about the hidden data, to conceal channel errors on intra-coded frames of a video sequence. The errors on inter-coded frames are basically recovered by hiding motion vector information along with a checksum into the next frames. The simulation results show that the proposed approach performs superior to conventional approaches for concealing the errors in binary symmetric channels, especially for higher bit rates and error rates.

Error resilient layered stereoscopic video streaming
Tan, A. Serdar; Aksay, Anil; Bilen, Cagdas; Akar, Gözde; ARIKAN, ERDAL (2007-05-09)
In this paper, error resilient stereoscopic video streaming problem is addressed. Two different Forward Error Correction (FEC) codes namely Systematic LT and RS codes are utilized to protect the stereoscopic video data against transmission errors. Initially, the stereoscopic video is categorized in 3 layers with different priorities. Then, a packetization scheme is used to increase the efficiency of error protection. A comparative analysis of RS and LT codes are provided via simulations to observe the optim...

Lightweight Object Localization with a Single Camera in Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks
Oztarak, Hakan; Akkaya, Kemal; Yazıcı, Adnan (2009-12-04)
Advances in wireless multimedia sensor networks (WMSNs) stimulated interest in designing lightweight solutions in terms of processing and energy consumption for traditional problems due to severe resources constraints on camera sensors. Finding the exact object location is one of such traditional problems which has been well studied in the past. However, the proposed solutions mostly involve complex processing with multiple cameras and thus cannot be applied to surveillance applications which need to be dep...
