Need for automatic video copy detection is increased with the recent technical developments in the internet technologies and video recording. Even though image-based techniques with bag-of-word kind of representations are accepted as the best solution because of robustness and speed; they discard the convenient geometric relation which exists among interest points. In this work, we propose a novel geometric relation which computes a binary signature leveraging existence and non-existence of interest points in the neighborhood area. The experimental results on TRECVID 2009 content-based video copy detection dataset show that combination of our method with recently proposed quantization-based indexing and weak geometric consistency schemes outperforms classical representations.

The recent improvements on internet technologies and video coding techniques cause an increase in copyright infringements especially for video. Frequently, image-based approaches appear as an essential solution due to the fact that joint usage of quantization-based indexing and weak geometric consistency stages give a capability to compare duplicate videos quickly. However, exploiting purely spatial content ignores the temporal variation of video. In this work, we propose a system that combines the state-of...
Visual privacy protection using false colors
Çiftçi, Serdar; Akyüz, Ahmet Oğuz; Department of Computer Engineering (2017)
Visual privacy protection (VPP) in video surveillance is an important problem, which is likely to be even more important with the rapid expansion of video surveillance. Although many VPP algorithms exist, none of them simultaneously meets all the desired characteristics of a good privacy protection algorithm. The chief limitation of existing VPP methods is that they require regions of interest (ROI) to be automatically detected or manually marked, both of which are difficult to achieve and prone to errors. I...
An efficient HW&SW design of H.264 video compression, storage and playback on FPGA devices for hand-held thermal imaging systems
Gunay, Omer; Ozsarac, Ismail; Kamışlı, Fatih (2017-04-11)
Video recording is an essential property of new generation military imaging systems. Playback of the stored video on the same device is also desirable as it provides several operational benefits to end users. Two very important constraints for many military imaging systems, especially for hand-held devices and thermal weapon sights, are power consumption and size. To meet these constraints, it is essential to perform most of the processing applied to the video signal, such as preprocessing, compression, sto...

The increasing demand for streaming video raises the need for flexible and easily implemented Video Quality Assessment (VQA) metrics. Although there are different VQA metrics, most of these are either Full-Reference (FR) or Reduced-Reference (RR). Both FR and RR metrics bring challenges for on-the-fly multimedia systems due to the necessity of additional network traffic for reference data. No-eference (NR) video metrics, on the other hand, as the name suggests, are much more flexible for user-end applicatio...
An end-to-end QoS control scheme for video transmission over Internet
Genel, H; Erten, YM (2003-07-03)
Real-time digital video transmission over Internet is a challenging problem. Real-time video traffic is bursty, cannot tolerate delays in delivery and requires a lot of bandwidth, which contrast with the characteristics Of current Internet. In this work, we address the various aspects of the problem and present a work that makes use of the standards and proposed techniques in order to implement an efficient and robust real-time video transmission framework providing adequate video presentation quality over ...
