We present a 3D modeling system for traffic surveillance applications. The application contains several cameras positioned around a traffic scene. The video signals are compressed and streamed to a central client. At the central client a scene reconstruction is carried out, using all 2D camera views utilizing 3D camera calibration information. To combine(More)
Recent work has shown that object-based video coding can provide higher coding gain than common H.264/AVC for single-view and the MVC standard based on H.264 for multi-view (MVC). The use of background sprites outperformes the AVC/MVC especially in sequences containing rotating camera motion and moving foreground objects. The coding performance strongly(More)
Work is currently underway to develop a new multi-view video coding (MVC) standard, based on the recent H.264/AVC standard. Recent work has shown, however, that object-based video coding can provide higher performance than H.264, especially at low bit rates and in sequences containing rotating camera motion and moving objects in the foreground. In this(More)
In recent years advanced video codecs have been developed, such as standardized in MPEG-4. The latest video codec standardized, the H.264/AVC, provides compression performance superior to previous standards, but is based on the same basic motion-compensated-DCT architecture. However, for certain kinds of videos, it has also been shown that it is possible to(More)
