This paper presents an efficient video coding algorithm: Three-dimensional embedded subband coding with optimized truncation (3-D ESCOT), in which coefficients in different subbands are independently coded using fractional bit-plane coding and candidate truncation points are formed at the end of each fractional bit-plane. A rate-distortion optimized(More)
This paper proposes a generic lifting technology (Barbell Lifting), where each predicting or updating signal is generated with a Barbell function instead of always a sample from single direction or bi-direction, to incorporate various motion alignment methods into temporal wavelet transform. The proposed lifting technology embraces fractional pixel motion(More)
—This paper provides an overview of the Barbell lifting coding scheme that has been adopted as common software by the MPEG ad hoc group on further exploration of wavelet video coding. The core techniques used in this scheme, such as Barbell lifting, layered motion coding, 3-D entropy coding and base layer embedding, are discussed. The paper also analyzes(More)
This paper investigates the spatial scalability in 3D wave-let coding with spatial-domain MCTF encoder. We analyzed the factors which lead to the performance degradation in heuristic decoding scheme where inverse MCTF is carried out in spatial lowpass wavelet domain as if it were the original video at encoder. The inefficiency of interpolation and motion(More)
This paper proposes the directional filtering transform (dFT, in order to distinguish from the common usage on DFT) to better exploit intra-frame correlation in H.264 intra-frame coding. It consists of a directional filtering and an optional DCT transform. In the proposed directional filtering, there are two different approaches. One is the uni-directional(More)
Line-based coding has shown its potential in improving the coding efficiency of intra-frame/image coding due to its flexibility in prediction. In our previous work we proposed an efficient line-based image coding method (LIC) by adaptive line-by-line prediction (ALP) and adaptive residue coding. In this paper we further improve this line-based coding scheme(More)

—Three-dimensional (3-D) wavelet-based scalable video coding provides a viable alternative to standard MC-DCT coding. However, many current 3-D wavelet coders experience severe boundary effects across group of pictures (GOP) boundaries. This paper proposes a memory-efficient transform technique via lifting that effectively computes wavelet transforms of a(More)
