Estimation of depth fields suitable for video compression based on 3-D structure and motion of objects

Intensity prediction along motion trajectories removes temporal redundancy considerably in video compression algorithms. In three-dimensional (3-D) object-based video coding, both 3-D motion and depth values are required for temporal prediction. The required 3-D motion parameters for each object are found by the correspondence-based E-matrix method. The estimation of the correspondences-two-dimensional (2-D) motion field-between the frames and segmentation of the scene into objects are achieved simultaneously by minimizing a Gibbs energy. The depth field is estimated by jointly minimizing a defined distortion and bit-rate criterion using the 3-D motion parameters. The resulting depth field is efficient in the rate-distortion sense, Bit-rate values corresponding to the lossless encoding of the resultant depth fields are obtained using predictive coding; prediction errors are encoded by a Lempel-Ziv algorithm. The results are satisfactory for real-life video scenes.

Recursive Prediction for Joint Spatial and Temporal Prediction in Video Coding
Kamışlı, Fatih (2014-06-01)
Video compression systems use prediction to reduce redundancies present in video sequences along the temporal and spatial dimensions. Standard video coding systems use either temporal or spatial prediction on a per block basis. If temporal prediction is used, spatial information is ignored. If spatial prediction is used, temporal information is ignored. This may be a computationally efficient approach, but it does not effectively combine temporal and spatial information. In this letter, we provide a framewo...
Estimation of rotation between two frames of a scene
Atalay, Mehmet Volkan (1998-04-14)
An algorithm is proposed in order to estimate the rotation between two frames of a scene. Only linear segments and their geometric attributes are used and the algorithm is based on the correlation of the slope angle histograms of linear segments extracted from two frames. The basic idea is that from one frame to the other, if the camera rotates theta(r) degrees, linear segments will also be rotated by theta(r) degrees. In order to alleviate computational complexity a coarse to fine approach is proposed. The...
Assessment of alternative simulation techniques in nonlinear time history analyses of multi-story frame buildings: A case study
Karim Zadeh Naghshineh, Shaghayegh; Askan Gündoğan, Ayşegül; Yakut, Ahmet (2017-07-01)
In regions with sparse ground motion data, simulations provide alternative acceleration time series for evaluation of the dynamic response of a structure. Different ground motion simulation methods provide varying levels of goodness of fit between observed and synthetic data. Before using the seismologically acceptable synthetic records for engineering purposes, it is critical to investigate the efficiency of synthetics in predicting observed seismic responses of structures. For this purpose, in this study ...

In this study, we propose a heuristic methodology for modeling the end-to-end distortion characteristics of an error resilient broadcast system for 3D video overDigital Video Broadcasting -Handheld (DVB-H). We also use this model to optimally select the parameters of the video encoder and the error correction scheme, namely, Multi Protocol Encapsulation Forward Error Correction (MPE-FEC), minimizing the overall distortion. The proposed method models the RQ curve of video encoder and performance of channel c...
Measurement of prompt J/psi pair production in pp collisions at root s = 7 Tev
Khachatryan, V.; et. al. (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2014-09-01)
Production of prompt J/psi meson pairs in proton-proton collisions at root s = 7 TeV is measured with the CMS experiment at the LHC in a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of about 4.7 fb(-1). The two J/psi mesons are fully reconstructed via their decays into mu(+)mu(-) pairs. This observation provides for the first time access to the high-transverse-momentum region of J/psi pair production where model predictions are not yet established. The total and differential cross sections are meas...
