In this paper, we propose a new stereo image compression scheme that is based on the wavelet transform of both images and the disparity estimation between the stereo pair subbands. The two images are decomposed by using a Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) and coded by employing the morphological representation of the wavelet coefficients, which is a(More)
In this paper, a new optimised method of coding stereoscopic image sequences is presented and compared with already known methods. Two basic methods of coding a stereoscopic image sequence are the compatible and joint. The first one uses MPEG for coding the left channel and takes advantage of the spatial disparity redundancy between the two sequences for(More)
A new optimised technique for coding stereoscopic image sequences is presented and compared with already known methods. The proposed technique, called enhanced interpolated motion and disparity estimation (EIMDE), is based on the joint method, which encodes the frames of the right image sequence by exploiting both the temporal redundancy of the same(More)
In this paper, we propose a family of novel stereoscopic image coders based on morphological coding and a block-based disparity compensation algorithm. The proposed schemes employ Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) decomposition and a morphological coder that lowers total entropy by exploiting the intra-band and inter-band statistical properties of the(More)
This paper presents a stereoscopic image coder based on the MRF model and MAP estimation of the disparity field. The MRF model minimizes the noise of disparity compensation, because it takes into account the residual energy, smoothness constraints on the disparity field, and the occlusion field. Disparity compensation is formulated as an MAP-MRF problem in(More)
We present a stereoscopic image coder based on the MRF model and MAP estimation of the disparity field. The MRF model minimizes the noise of the disparity compensation because it takes into account the residual energy, smoothness constraints and the occlusion field. The disparity compensation is formulated as a MAP-MRF problem in the spatial domain and the(More)
Integral Imaging (InIm) is a promising three-dimensional (3D) content creation and delivery technique. The simplicity of the method constitutes a straightforward and compact way for acquiring and displaying 3D data. However issues like integrity and authentication of a transmitted InIm are not discussed in the literature. In this paper we propose a jointly(More)
– In this paper, a new reversible watermarking method is presented that reduces the size of a stereoscopic image pair while keeping its content visible. The proposed technique embeds the disparity compensated difference and the disparity vectors of the stereo pair into the reference image, halving its total capacity. The residual is usually lossy compressed(More)
In this paper, we propose a novel stereoscopic image coder, which consists of a coding unit based on the morphological representation of the wavelet transform coefficients and a disparity compensation unit based on the quad-tree analysis and the disparity compensation between the images of a stereo pair. The coding unit employs a Discrete Wavelet Transform(More)
