We present a multimodal data set for the analysis of human affective states. The electroencephalogram (EEG) and peripheral physiological signals of 32 participants were recorded as each watched 40 one-minute long excerpts of music videos. Participants rated each video in terms of the levels of arousal, valence, like/dislike, dominance, and familiarity. For(More)
With the increasing use of multimedia technologies, image compression requires higher performance as well as new features. To address this need in the specific area of still image encoding, a new standard is currently being developed, the JPEG2000. It is not only intended to provide rate-distortion and subjective image quality performance superior to(More)
A brain-computer interface (BCI) is a communication system that translates brain-activity into commands for a computer or other devices. In other words, a BCI allows users to act on their environment by using only brain-activity, without using peripheral nerves and muscles. In this paper, we present a BCI that achieves high classification accuracy and high(More)
We present a full-and no-reference blur metric as well as a full-reference ringing metric. These metrics are based on an analysis of the edges and adjacent regions in an image and have very low computational complexity. As blur and ringing are typical artifacts of wavelet compression, the metrics are then applied to JPEG2000 coded images. Their perceptual(More)
Growing percentage of the world population now uses image and video coding technologies on a regular basis. These technologies are behind the success and quick deployment of services and products such as digital pictures, digital television, DVDs, and Internet video communications. Today's digital video coding paradigm represented by the ITU-T and MPEG(More)
In this paper, we present a no-reference blur metric for images and video. The blur metric is based on the analysis of the spread of the edges in an image. Its perceptual significance is validated through subjective experiments. The novel metric is near real-time, has low computational complexity and is shown to perform well over a range of image content.(More)
JPEG 2000, the new ISO/ITU-T standard for still image coding, is about to be finished. Other new standards have been recently introduced, namely JPEG-LS and MPEG-4 VTC. This paper compares the set of features offered by JPEG 2000, and how well they are fulfilled, versus JPEG-LS and MPEG-4 VTC, as well as the older but widely used JPEG and more recent PNG.(More)
With the advances in understanding perceptual properties of the human visual system and constructing their computational models, efforts toward incorporating human perceptual mechanisms in video compression to achieve maximal perceptual quality have received great attention. This paper thoroughly reviews the recent advances of perceptual video compression(More)
