H.264/AVC is the latest standard for video coding drafted jointly by the ISO/IEC Moving Picture Experts Group and the ITU-T Video Coding Experts Group. H.264/AVC provides up to 50% gains in compression efficiency over a wide range of bit rates and video resolutions compared to previous standards. On the other hand, the decoder complexity is about four times(More)
This paper presents a novel no-reference blocking artifacts metric using selective gradient and plainness (BAM_SGP) measures for DCT-coded images. A boundary selection criterion is introduced to distinguish the blocking artifacts boundaries from the true-edge boundaries, which ensures that the most potential artifacts boundaries are involved in the(More)
In order to reduce the bit rate of video signals, motion compensation prediction is applied in modern video coding technology. This is a form of temporal redundancy reduction in which the current coding frame is predicted by a motion compensated prediction from some other already decoded frames according to motion vector. As real motion has arbitrary(More)
We propose a novel compact representation for stereoscopic videos-a 2D video and its depth cues. Depth cues are derived from an interactive labeling process during 2D-to-3D video conversion, they are contour points of foreground objects and a background geometric model. By using such cues and image features of 2D video frames, depth maps of the frames can(More)
A spatio-temporal autoregressive model is proposed in this paper to address the problem of frame rate up conversion. Every pixel in a skipped frame is generated as a linear combination of pixel values from forward and backward reference frames. At the beginning of the presented scheme, the coarse model parameters are computed according to the given initial(More)
In this paper, a motion-aligned auto-regressive (MAAR) model is proposed for frame rate up conversion, where each pixel is interpolated as the average of the results generated by one forward MAAR (Fw-MAAR) model and one backward MAAR (Bw-MAAR) model. In the Fw-MAAR model, each pixel in the to-be-interpolated frame is generated as a linear weighted summation(More)
