Change detection is one of the most commonly encountered low-level tasks in computer vision and video processing. A plethora of algorithms have been developed to date, yet no widely accepted, realistic, large-scale video dataset exists for benchmarking different methods. Presented here is a unique change detection benchmark dataset consisting of nearly(More)
In this paper, we propose an efficient, robust, and fast method for the estimation of global motion from image sequences. The method is generic in that it can accommodate various global motion models, from a simple translation to an eight-parameter perspective model. The algorithm is hierarchical and consists of three stages. In the first stage, a low-pass(More)
Change detection is one of the most important lowlevel tasks in video analytics. In 2012, we introduced the changedetection.net (CDnet) benchmark, a video dataset devoted to the evalaution of change and motion detection approaches. Here, we present the latest release of the CDnet dataset, which includes 22 additional videos (70; 000 pixel-wise annotated(More)
This paper presents a new approach to the estimation of 2-D motion vector fields from time-varying images. The approach is stochastic both in its formulation and in the solution method. The formulation involves the specification of a deterministic structural model along ivith stochastic observation and motion field models. Two motion models are proposed: a(More)

Despite a significant growth in the last few years, the availability of 3D content is still dwarfed by that of its 2D counterpart. To close this gap, many 2D-to-3D image and video conversion methods have been proposed. Methods involving human operators have been most successful but also time-consuming and costly. Automatic methods, which typically make use(More)
We propose a general framework for fast and accurate recognition of actions in video using empirical covariance matrices of features. A dense set of spatio-temporal feature vectors are computed from video to provide a localized description of the action, and subsequently aggregated in an empirical covariance matrix to compactly represent the action. Two(More)
Efficient browsing of long video sequences is a key tool in visual surveillance, e.g., for postevent video forensics, but can also be used for fast review of motion pictures and home videos. While frame skipping (fixed or adaptive) is straightforward to implement, its performance is quite limited. Although more efficient techniques have been developed, such(More)
The removal of unwanted, parasitic vibrations in a video sequence induced by camera motion is an essential part of video acquisition in industrial, military and consumer applications. In this paper, we present a new image processing method to remove such vibrations and reconstruct a video sequence void of sudden camera movements. Our approach to separating(More)
