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 transmitted independently. The 3D dynamic mesh coder is based on predictive coding with spatial and temporal layered decomposition. In addition, the proposed method allows for different redundancy allocations by including a number of encoded spatial layers of the frames in the other set. The algorithm is evaluated with redundancy-rate-distortion curves and it is shown that, when one of the descriptions is lost, acceptable quality can be achieved with around 50% redundancy.

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 animated meshes
Bici, M. Oguz; Akar, Gözde (Elsevier BV, 2010-11-01)
In this paper, we propose three novel multiple description coding (MDC) methods for reliable transmission of compressed animated meshes represented by series of 3D static meshes with same connectivity. The proposed methods trade off reconstruction quality for error resilience to provide the best expected reconstruction of 3D mesh sequence at the decoder side. The methods are based on layer duplication and partitioning of the set of vertices of a scalable coded animated mesh by either spatial or temporal sub...
Multiple description coding of 3D geometry with forward error correction codes
Bici, M. Oguz; Norkin, Andrey; Akar, Gözde; Gotchev, Atanas; Astola, Jaakko (2007-05-09)
This work presents a multiple description coding (MDC) scheme for compressed three dimensional (3D) meshes based on forward error correction (FEC). It allows flexible allocation of coding redundancy for reliable transmission over error-prone channels. The proposed scheme is based on progressive geometry compression, which is performed by using wavelet transform and modified SPIHT algorithm. The proposed algorithm is optimized for varying packet loss rates (PLR) and channel bandwidth. Modeling distortion-rat...
Improved prediction methods for scalable predictive animated mesh compression
Bici, M. Oguz; Akar, Gözde (2011-10-01)
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 integ...
