Error concealment of video sequences by data hiding

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. Utilization of data hiding for this problem 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 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 inter-coded frames are basically recovered by hiding motion vector information 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.

Bugdayci, Done; Akar, Gözde; Gotchev, Atanas (2012-01-17)
In this paper, we present a complete framework of an end-to-end error resilient transmission of 3D video over DVB-H and provide an analysis of transmission parameters. We perform the analysis for various layering, protection strategy and prediction structure using different contents and different channel conditions.
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...
Improvements to neural network based restoration in optical networks
Türk, Fethi; Bilgen, Semih; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2008)
Performance of neural network based restoration of optical networks is evaluated and a few possible improvements are proposed. Neural network based restoration is simulated with optical link capacities assigned by a new method. Two new improvement methods are developed to reduce the neural network size and the restoration time of severed optical connections. Cycle based restoration is suggested, which reduces the neural network structure by restoring the severed connections for each optical node, iterativel...
Rate-distortion optimization for stereoscopic video streaming with unequal error protection
Tan, A. Serdar; Aksay, Anil; Akar, Gözde; ARIKAN, ERDAL (2009-01-01)
We consider an error-resilient stereoscopic streaming system that uses an H.264-based multiview video codec and a rateless Raptor code for recovery from packet losses. One aim of the present work is to suggest a heuristic methodology for modeling the end-to-end rate-distortion (RD) characteristic of such a system. Another aim is to show how to make use of such a model to optimally select the parameters of the video codec and the Raptor code to minimize the overall distortion. Specifically, the proposed syst...
Fault detection and service restoration in medium voltage distribution system
Altın, Müfit; Özay, Nevzat; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2009)
This thesis proposes an algorithm and develops a program for fault detection and system restoration in medium voltage distribution systems. In Turkey, TUBITAK-UZAY developed distribution automation system including fault detection and service restoration functions for Bogazici Electricity Distribution Company. By the time, expanding of distribution system with nonstandardized infrastructure (for example more than one circuit breaker in the feeder, mesh and closed loop feeder structure), developed automation...
