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 vertices into two sets 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 duplicating a number of encoded spatial layers in both sets. The algorithm is evaluated with redundancy-rate-distortion curves and flexible trade-off between redundancy and side distortions can be achieved.

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...
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...
Multiple description coding of animated meshes

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...
DISTRIBUTED 3D DYNAMIC MESH CODING
Bici, M. Oguz; Akar, Gözde (2008-10-15)
In this paper, we propose a distributed 3D dynamic mesh coding system. The system is based on Slepian and Wolf's and Wyner and Ziv's information-theoretic results. Our system extends the ideas in distributed video coding to 3D dynamic meshes with constant connectivity. The connectivity of the sequence and key frames are encoded and decoded by a conventional static mesh coder. The Wyner-Ziv frames are encoded independent of key frames but decoded jointly with decoded key frames. The joint decoding is perform...
