— Search point pattern-based fast block motion estimation algorithms provide significant speedup for motion estimation but usually suffer from being easily trapped in local minima. This may lead to low robustness in prediction accuracy particularly for video sequences with complex motions. This problem is especially serious in one-at-a-time search (OTS) and(More)
— An important problem in color based image retrieval is the lack of efficient way to represent both the color and the spatial structure information with single descriptor. To solve this problem, a new Dominant Color Structure Descriptor (DCSD), is proposed. The descriptor combines the compactness of Dominant Color Descriptor (DCD) and the accuracy of Color(More)
The performance of view synthesis using depth image based rendering (DIBR) highly depends on the accuracy of depth map. Inaccurate boundary alignment between texture image and depth map especially for large depth discontinuities always cause annoying artifacts in disocclusion regions of the synthesized view. Pre-filtering approach and reliability-based(More)
The MPEG-7 dominant color descriptor (DCD) is an effective, compact, and intuitive representation of salient colors in an image region and is very useful for content-based image retrieval and indexing applications. However, the original quadratic histogram distance measure (QHDM) for MPEG-7 DCD similarity matching does not fit the human perception very(More)
A new dominant color structure descriptor (DCSD) is proposed in this paper. It is designed to provide an efficient way to represent both color and spatial structure information with single compact descriptor. The descriptor combines the compactness of dominant color descriptor (DCD) and the retrieval accuracy of color structure descriptor (CSD) to enhance(More)
—In this paper, a novel weighted cross prediction (WCP) mode is proposed to replace DC mode in Intra_4x4 prediction of H.264/AVC. In the proposed scheme, the upper right part of one 4x4 block mainly employs vertical prediction while the lower left part mainly uses horizontal prediction, predicting both in vertical and horizontal directions in one block.(More)
