In some video coding applications, it is desirable to reduce the complexity of the video encoder at the expense of a more complex decoder. Distributed video (DV) coding is a new paradigm that aims to achieve this. To allocate a proper number of bits to each frame, most DV coding algorithms use a feedback channel (FBC). However, in some cases, a FBC does not(More)
Within a camera network, the contribution of a camera to the observation of a scene depends on its viewpoint and on the scene configuration. This is a dynamic property, as the scene content is subject to change over time and the camera configuration might not be fixed, e.g. in a mobile network. In this work, we address the problem of effectively determining(More)
Within a camera network, the contribution of a camera to the observations of a scene depends on its viewpoint and on the scene configuration. This is a dynamic property, as the scene content is subject to change over time. An automatic selection of a subset of cameras that significantly contributes to the desired observation of a scene can be of great value(More)
In contrast to conventional video coding, Wyner-Ziv video coders perform simple intra-frame encoding and complex inter-frame decoding. This feature makes this type of coding suitable for applications that require low-complexity encoders. In this paper, we present a model of the coding distortion introduced by pixel-domain Wyner-Ziv video coders. Our(More)
Tracking persons with multiple cameras with overlapping fields of view instead of with one camera leads to more robust decisions. However, operating multiple cameras instead of one requires more processing power and communication bandwidth, which are limited resources in practical networks. When the fields of view of different cameras overlap, not all(More)

A broad range of very powerful foreground detection methods exist because this is an essential step in many computer vision algorithms. However, because of memory and computational constraints, simple static background subtraction is very often the technique that is used in practice on a platform with limited resources such as a smart camera. In this paper(More)

Compared to traditional mono-view systems, stereo or in general multi-view systems provide interesting additional information about a captured scene, which can significantly facilitate content extraction. This property makes them very useful for many emerging applications, such as 3D TV and video surveillance. However, the use of such systems has been(More)
