A novel method is proposed to achieve efficient MPEG-2 video editing in compressed domain while preserving Video Buffer Verifier (VBV) requirements. Different cases are determined, according to the VBV modes of the bitstreams to be concatenated. For each case, the minimum number of zero-stuffing bits or shortest waiting time between two streams is determined analytically, so that the resulting bit-stream is still VBV-compliant. The simulation:results show that the proposed method is applicable to any MPEG-2 bit-stream independent of its encoder.


Video segmentation using partially decoded MPEG bitstream
Kayaalp, Işıl Burcun; Akar, Gözde; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2003)
In this thesis, a mixed type video segmentation algorithm is implemented to find the scene cuts in MPEG compressed video data. The main aim is to have a computationally efficient algorithm for real time applications. Due to this reason partial decoding of the bitstream is used in segmentation. As a result of partial decoding, features such as bitrate, motion vector type, and DC images are implemented to find both continuous and discontinuous scene cuts on a MPEG-2 coded general TV broadcast data. The result...
Design of H.264/AVC compatible intra-frame video encoder on FPGA programmable logic devices /
Günay, Ömer; Kamışlı, Fatih; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2014)
Video compression is a technique used to reduce the amount of data in a video to limit the amount of storage space and bandwidth it requires. H.264/AVC is a widely used video compression standard developed together by the ISO (International Organization for Standardization) Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG) and the ITU (International Telecommunication Union) Video Coding Experts Group (VCEG). H.264/AVC offers an extended range of algorithms for coding digital video to achieve superior compression efficien...
Efficient and fair adaptive streaming: algorithm, implementation and evaluation
Öge, Ahmet; Schmidt, Şenan Ece; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2017)
HTTP Adaptive Streaming (HAS) is a popular video streaming method where the client downloads video segments over standard HTTP protocol. In HAS, the server stores the video segments that are encoded in different qualities which determine the video bit rates. To this end, the client first downloads a file which describes the video segments. Then, using a rate adaptation algorithm, the client decides on the most appropriate video bit rate for the next segment to download and sends an HTTP request for that seg...
HTTP http adaptive streaming architectures for video on demand and live TV services
Özcan, Yiğit; Schmidt, Şenan Ece; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2013)
HTTP Adaptive Streaming (HAS) has become a popular video streaming solution since it both benefits from the ubiquitous HTTP protocol and firewall and NAT traversal capabilities of TCP. HAS aims to provide high Quality of Experience (QoE) to the clients under limited and varying bandwidth by rate adaptation algorithms which allow the clients to choose the most appropriate video quality. A rate adaptation algorithm should utilize the available bandwidth. Furthermore, the received video bitrates should not dev...
Joint utilization of fixed and variable-length codes for improving synchronization immunity for image transmission
Alatan, Abdullah Aydın (1998-01-01)
Robust transmission of images is achieved by using fixed and variable-length coding together without much loss in compression efficiency. The probability distribution function of a DCT coefficient can be divided into two regions using a threshold; so that one portion contains roughly equiprobable transform coefficients. While fixed-length coding, which is a powerful solution to the synchronization problem, is used in this inner equiprobable region without sacrificing compression, the outer (saturating) regi...
