In this paper a video coding scheme based on parametric compression of texture is proposed. Each macro block is characterized either as an edge block, or as a non edge block containing texture. The non edge blocks are coded by modeling them as an auto-regressive process (AR). By applying the AR model in spatio-temporal domain, we ensure both spatial as well(More)
We present a model for development of orientation selectivity in layer IV simple cells. Receptive field (RF) development in the model, is determined by diffusive cooperation and resource limited competition guided axonal growth and retraction in geniculocortical pathway. The simulated cortical RFs resemble experimental RFs. The receptive field model is(More)
We propose a novel particle filter-based motion compensation strategy for video coding. We use a higher order linear model in place of the traditional translational model used in standards such as H.264. The measurement/observation process in the particle filter is a computationally efficient mechanism as opposed to traditional search methods. We use a(More)
In this paper, we propose a multi-resolution affine block-based tracker for motion estimation and compensation, compatible with existing video coding standards such as H.264 and HEVC. We propose three modifications to traditional motion compensation techniques in video coding standards such as H.264 and HEVC. First, we replace traditional search methods(More)
Experimental evidences [1-5] indicate that orientation selectivity develops in the absence of visual experience. Here, we present a model for pre-eye opening development of orientation selectivity. The model essentially models layer IV cortical cells and confirms the poor orientation tuning observed in layer IV ceCls. We also show that post synaptic(More)
Parametric coding is a technique in which data is processed to extract meaningful information and then representing it compactly using appropriate parameters. Parametric Coding exploits redundancy in information to provide a very compact representation and thus achieves very high compression ratios. However, this is achieved at the cost of higher(More)
