— Objective image and video quality measures play important roles in a variety of image and video pro-and watermarking. Most proposed quality assessment approaches in the literature are error sensitivity-based methods. In this paper, we follow a new philosophy in designing image and video quality metrics, which uses structural distortion as an estimate of(More)
Image and video coding is an optimization problem. A successful image and video coding algorithm delivers a good tradeoff between visual quality and other coding performance measures, such as compression, complexity, scalability, robustness, and security. In this paper, we follow two recent trends in image and video coding research. One is to incorporate(More)
Objective image/video quality measures play important roles in various image/video processing applications, such as compression, communication, printing, analysis, registration, restoration and enhancement. Most proposed quality assessment approaches in the literature are error sensitivity-based methods. In this paper, we follow a new philosophy in(More)
There has been an increasing need recently to develop objective quality measurement techniques that can predict perceived video quality automatically. This paper introduces two video quality assessment models. The first one requires the original video as a reference and is a structural distortion measurement based approach , which is different from(More)
Embedded rate scalable video coding allows for the extraction of coded visual information at continuously varying bit rates from a single compressed bitstream. This is a very attractive feature for many multimedia communication applications. Motion estimation (ME) /motion compensation (MC) techniques are widely employed in various video coding systems to(More)
This paper presents a computing technique for efficient parallel simulation of large-scale discrete-event models on the IBM Cell Broadband Engine (CBE), which has one Power Processor Element (PPE) and eight Synergistic Processing Elements (SPE). Based on the general-purpose Discrete Event System Specification (DEVS), the technique tackles all performance(More)
