Compressed Domain Image Retrievals Based On DCT-Processing

  title={Compressed Domain Image Retrievals Based On DCT-Processing},
  author={Alexey I. Frolov and S. Primechaev},
While data compression has made significant contribution to the digital revolution in computer science and telecommunications, efficient image processing algorithms and feature extraction techniques are developed in pixel domain. As a matter of fact, many JPEG compressed image retrieval methods based on DCT coefficients have been elaborated in recent years. Various approaches and systems of image retrieval and matching are investigated in the paper. Particular attention was given to studying…

Low Complexity Image Matching in the Compressed Domain by using the DCT-phase
This paper presents a new, simple, and efficient algorithm for image matching in the compressed domain that operates directly on transformed frequency-domain data and exploits the fact that the phase of the coefficients of a DCT transformed image contains a significant amount of information of the original image.
The Extraction of Image's Salient Points for Image Retrieval
A new salient point extraction method from Discrete Cosine Transformation (DCT) compressed domain for content-based image retrieval is proposed, and based on salient points, 13 rotation-, translation- and scale-invariant moments are extracted as the image shape features for retrieval.
Exploiting the JPEG Compression Scheme for Image Retrieval
We address the problem of retrieving images from a large database using an image as a query. The method is specifically aimed at databases that store images in JPEG format, and works in the
A critical evaluation of image and video indexing techniques in the compressed domain
Direct feature extraction from compressed images
This paper considers the detection of areas of interest and edges in images compressed using the discrete cosine transform (DCT) and shows how a measure based on certain DCT coefficients of a block can provide an indication of underlying activity.
Texture characterization of compressed aerial images using DCT coefficients
Although more research is required across different photo-scales and sets of images, it is concluded that texture features generated from compressed JPEG images have potential for content-based image retrieval based on texture.
Image Retrieval Using Spatial Color and Edge Detection
A novel IR scheme with multiple features, the spatial color and edge percentage features, derived by way of moment-preserving edge detection, which outperforms other similar methods in terms of accuracy and retrieval efficiency.
Transform features for texture classification and discrimination in large image databases
The authors show that with this relatively simple feature set, effective texture discrimination can be achieved, and hope that the performance for texture discrimination of these simple energy-based features will allow images in a database to be efficiently and effectively indexed by contents of their textured regions.
Photobook: tools for content-based manipulation of image databases
We describe the Photobook system, which is a set of interactive tools for browsing and searching images and image sequences. These tools differ from those used in standard image databases in that
Blobworld: A System for Region-Based Image Indexing and Retrieval
This work indexes the blob descriptions using a lower-rank approximation to the high-dimensional distance to make large-scale retrieval feasible, and shows encouraging results for both querying and indexing.
