This paper studies the zero-delay source-channel coding problem, and specifically the problem of obtaining the vector transformations that optimally map between the m-dimensional source space and k-dimensional channel space, under a given transmission power constraint and for the mean square error distortion. The functional properties of the cost are(More)
The two most prevalent notions of common information (CI) are due to Wyner and Gács-Körner and both the notions can be stated as two different characteristic points in the lossless Gray-Wyner region. Although the information theoretic characterizations for these two CI quantities can be easily evaluated for random variables with infinite(More)
What is the optimal source-channel communication system for a given finite block length? The problem of obtaining the vector transformations that optimally map between the m-dimensional source space and the k-dimensional channel space is considered under a given channel power constraint and mean square error distortion measure. Closed form necessary(More)
This paper focuses on optimal analog mappings for zero-delay, distributed source-channel coding. The objective is to obtain the optimal vector trans- formations that map between m-dimensional source spaces and k-dimensional channel spaces, subject to a prescribed power constraint and assuming the mean square error distortion measure. Closed-form necessary(More)
Significant power savings can be achieved on voltage/ frequency configurable platforms by dynamically adapting the frequency and voltage according to the workload (complexity). Video decoding is one of the most complex tasks performed on such systems due to its computationally demanding operations like inverse filtering, interpolation, motion compensation(More)
Scalable video coders provide different scaling options, such as temporal, spatial, and SNR scalabilities, where rate reduction by discarding enhancement layers of different scalability-type results in different kinds and/or levels of visual distortion depend on the content and bitrate. This dependency between scalability type, video content, and bitrate is(More)
The two most prevalent notions of common information are due to Wyner and Gács-Körner and both the notions can be stated as two different characteristic points in the lossless Gray-Wyner region. Although these quantities can be easily evaluated for random variables with infinite entropy (eg. continuous random variables), the operational(More)
A methodology for complexity scalable video encoding and complexity control within the framework of the H.264/AVC video encoder is presented. To yield good rate-distortion performance under strict complexity/time constraints for instance in real-time communication, a framework for optimal complexity allocation at the macroblock level is necessary. We(More)
Randomized (dithered) quantization is a method capable of achieving white reconstruction error independent of the source. Dithered quantizers have traditionally been considered within their natural setting of uniform quantization. In this paper we extend conventional dithered quantization to nonuniform quantization, via a subterfage: dithering is performed(More)
