Animated meshes represented as sequences of static meshes sharing the same connectivity require efficient compression. Among the compression techniques, layered predictive coding methods efficiently encode the animated meshes in a structured way such that the successive reconstruction with an adaptable quality can be performed. The decoding quality heavily depends on how well the prediction is performed in the encoder. Due to this fact, in this paper, three novel prediction structures are proposed and integrated into a state of the art layered predictive coder. The proposed structures are based on weighted spatial prediction with its weighted refinement and angular relations of triangles between current and previous frames. The experimental results show that compared to the state of the art scalable predictive coder, up to 30% bitrate reductions can be achieved with the combination of proposed prediction schemes depending on the content and quantization level.

IMPROVED PREDICTION FOR LAYERED PREDICTIVE ANIMATED MESH COMPRESSION
Bici, M. Oguz; Akar, Gözde (2010-09-29)
In this paper, we deal with layered predictive compression of animated meshes represented by series of 3D static meshes with same connectivity. We propose two schemes to improve the prediction. First improvement is using weighted spatial prediction rather than averaging neighbor vertices. The second improvement is a novel predictor based on rotation angle of incident triangles in current and previous frames. The experimental results show that around 6- 10 % bitrate reduction can be achieved by replacing the...
Multiple Description Coding of 3D Dynamic Meshes Based on Temporal Subsampling
Bici, M. Oguz; Akar, Gözde (2010-01-21)
In this paper, we propose a Multiple Description Coding (MDC) method for reliable transmission of compressed time consistent 3D dynamic meshes. It trades off reconstruction quality for error resilience to provide the best expected reconstruction of 3D mesh sequence at the decoder side. The method is based on partitioning the mesh frames into two sets by temporal subsampling and encoding each set independently by a 3D dynamic mesh coder. The encoded independent bitstreams or so-called descriptions are transm...

Improvement of Transform-Skip Mode in Lossy Intra Coding with 3-Tap Filters
Alvar, Saeed Ranjbar; Kamışlı, Fatih (2016-08-05)
Using transforms in video coding is an effective method in reducing the spatial redundancy. However, for some cases applying transforms does not reduce the spatial redundancy. For these cases, transforms are skipped and the prediction error is directly quantized and then entropy coded. To further reduce the spatial redundancy in the transform skipped blocks, a pixel-by-pixel lossy intra prediction method based on a two dimensional correlation model is proposed in this paper. In the proposed method, three re...
Improved SIFT matching for image pairs with scale difference
BAŞTANLAR, YALIN; Temizel, Alptekin; Yardimci, Y. (2010-03-04)
When directly applied to images with different scales, scale invariant feature transform (SIFT) matching performance decreases significantly. In this reported work, this phenomenon is demonstrated and a simple method to increase the performance of SIFT matching is proposed. The proposed method includes preprocessing the images before matching and is compared to previously proposed solutions which only eliminate false matches.
