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)
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)
A new type of three-dimensional (3-D) display recently introduced on the market holds great promise for the future of 3-D visualization, communication, and entertainment. This so-called automultiscopic display can deliver multiple views without glasses, thus allowing a limited "look-around" (correct motion-parallax). Central to this technology is the(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)
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)
Stereoscopic visualization systems based on liquid crystal shutter (LCS) eyewear and cathode-ray tube (CRT) displays provide today the best overall quality of three-dimensional (3-D) images and therefore have a dominant position in commercial as well as professional markets. Due to the CRT and LCS characteristics, however, such systems suffer from(More)
—Background subtraction is a powerful mechanism for detecting change in a sequence of images that finds many applications. The most successful background subtraction methods apply probabilistic models to background intensities evolving in time; nonparametric and mixture-of-Gaussians models are but two examples. The main difficulty in designing a robust(More)
