—To achieve superior performance, rate-distortion optimized motion estimation (ME) for variable block size (RDO-VBSME) is often used in state-of-the-art video coding systems such as the H.264 JM software. However, the complexity of RDO-VBSME is very high both for software and hardware implementations. In this paper, we propose a hardware-friendly ME(More)
—In this paper, we propose an advanced color image denoising scheme called multichannel nonlocal means fusion (MNLF), where noise reduction is formulated as the minimization of a penalty function. An inherent feature of color images is the strong interchannel correlation, which is introduced into the penalty function as additional prior constraints to(More)
—Cost aggregation is the most essential step for dense stereo correspondence searching, which measures the similarity between pixels in the stereo images. In this paper, based on the analysis of the optimal adaptive weight, we propose a novel support aggregation strategy by adaptive weighting selection. The proposed method calculates the aggregation cost by(More)
Nanopores fabricated in free-standing amorphous silicon thin films were observed to close under 3 keV argon ion irradiation. The closing rate, measured in situ, exhibited a memory effect: at the same instantaneous radius, pores that started larger close more slowly. An ion-stimulated viscous flow model is developed and solved in both a simple analytical(More)
— The deblocking filter in H.264/AVC is one of the most time consuming part of video decoder as its high content adaptation and data dependency lead to lots of computation. In this paper, we propose a novel parallel deblocking filter design based on the H.264/AVC video coding standard, taking the advantage that the data dependency of the deblocking filter(More)
—A common assumption in stereo matching is that the corresponding pixels in stereo images have similar pixel values. Unfortunately, such an assumption may not be true due to radio-metric variations in different views, leading to severely degraded matching results. In this letter, we propose a radiometrically invariant stereo matching algorithm called(More)
