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)
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)
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)
