Iterative projection algorithms for removing the blocking artifacts of block-DCT compressed images

1993 IEEE International Conference on Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing, 1993

Iterative projection algorithms for reconstructing visually pleasing images from block discrete cosine transform (BDCT) compressed image data are presented. Two algorithms are proposed. The first is based on the theory of projections onto convex sets (POCS). The second is motivated by the theory of POCS. In order for the POCS approach to be effective, the convex sets must be as ...

  • Iterative projection algorithms for removing the blocking artifacts of block-DCT compressed images

    Iterative projection algorithms for reconstructing visually pleasing images from block discrete cosine transform (BDCT) compressed image data are presented. Two algorithms are proposed. The first is based on the theory of projections onto convex sets (POCS). The second is motivated by the theory of POCS. In order for the POCS approach to be effective, the convex sets must be as pertinent as possible to the required objective. For the deblocking of the DCT compressed images two types of constraint sets capture most of the information pertinent to this problem: the set that contains the information of the transmitted DCT coefficients and the sets that express the between- block smoothness properties of the desired image. The proposed iterative reconstruction algorithms have been tested thoroughly on different DCT-based compression approaches for a number of 256*256 and 512*512 images. The experimental results demonstrate that the proposed algorithms yield superior images to those obtained by direct reconstruction from the compressed data only.<<ETX>>

  • Understanding and simplifying the structural similarity metric

    The structural similarity (SSIM) metric and its multi-scale extension (MS- SSIM) evaluate visual quality with a modified local measure of spatial correlation consisting of three components: mean, variance, and cross- correlation. This paper investigates how the SSIM components contribute to its quality evaluation of common image artifacts. The predictive performance of the individual components and pairwise component products is assessed using the LIVE image database. After a nonlinear mapping, the product of the variance and cross- correlation components yields nearly identical linear correlation with subjective ratings as the complete SSIM and MS- SSIM computations. A computationally simple alternative to SSIM (c.f Eq. (6)) that ignores the mean component and sets the local average patch values to 128 exhibits a 1% decrease in linear correlation with subjective ratings to 0.934 from the complete SSIM evaluation with an over 20% reduction in the number of multiplications.

  • Fast implementation of level set method and its real-time applications

    The level set method (LSM) has been widely used for various applications such as motion tracking and 3D geometrical modeling. However, the calculation cost of reinitialization and updating of an implicit function is considerably expensive as compared with conventional active contour models such as "snakes". To tackle this problem, we propose an efficient algorithm of the LSM named the fast level set method (FLSM). This paper introduces some experiments based on the FLSM, including 2D real-time tracking of moving objects in video images, and 3D simultaneous motion capture system of multiple targets using stereo range images.

  • To see or not to see … the other rhetoric

    Verbal and written language has become so dominant that it virtually excludes the perceptual languages from the thought process. However, Musil [1], in keeping with his thesis on the “other condition,” posits that visual and verbal statements must be kept in mind in a kind of complementary condition, if valid communication is to occur. But is visible language currently being used properly as an integral part of communication? Is it a means for addressing falling literacy levels? Can it be used as a tool to assist the programming function? To see, or not to see: that is the question.

  • GUID-based mobile visual communication using NDN mechanism

    With the explosive growth in the number of mobile terminals, the demand for visual communication with mobility is increasing. However, traditional solutions for mobility over IP network cannot always meet the demand of satisfying visual communication. Named Data Networking (NDN) is a new communication model that aims to replace IP model brings a different background to mobile visual communication problems. In this paper, we take advantage of the NDN model to realize seamless mobile visual communication. We introduce a delegate with calculation functions and a globally unique identifier (GUID) which can provide native identity indication into the NDN mechanism. The use of GUID benefits real-time applications like visual communication and further works with the delegate to decrease unnecessary routing update. We also specify the naming rule and design a FIB+ to support seamless mobile visual communication. To test the performance of our solutions, we build a proof-of-concept prototype and run experiments on it. The experiments demonstrate that our solution can provide real-time video communication with seamless mobility experience.

  • HVS-based structural image quality assessment model

    In this paper, image quality assessment based on HVS (Human Visual System) is analyzed, and a new image quality assessment model based on HVS is proposed, which is called HVS-based Structural Quality-index (HSQ). Because the quality assessment model based on HVS is much closer to the subjective quality of the image, the HSQ performs better to fit the human eyes.

  • Stereoscopic images disparity for predictive coding

    In order to create a 3-D system with two images (right and left) that must be transmitted simultaneously, an efficient coding appropriate for stereoscopic images must be developed to reduce the large amount of information contained in the images. As an initial step in realizing such a coding scheme, the statistical characteristics of stereoscopic images and the possibility of stereoscopic image data compression utilizing the cross correlation between the right and left images are considered. The results indicate that data compression is possible by shifting one image horizontally and subtracting it from the corresponding area of the other. Experiments to compare the capability of generating disparity by stereoscopic TV images and human stereoscopic vision have been performed. The results indicate that data compressions without 3-D image deterioration is possible by reducing high- spatial-frequency disparity above 3 cycles/degree. It is concluded that efficient image coding for stereoscopic images can be achieved by utilizing the correlation between two images and human stereopsis characteristics, making possible low-cost, more realistic 3-D visual communication.<<ETX>>

  • The NSF foundation coalition-past, present, and future

    The Foundation Coalition (FC) was funded in 1993 as the fifth coalition in the National Science Foundation's Engineering Education Coalitions Program. The FC has as its vision a new culture of engineering education: students and faculty working in partnership to create an enduring foundation for student development and life-long learning. The member institutions-Arizona State University (ASU), Maricopa Community College District (MCCD), Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology (RHTT), Texas A&M University (TAMU), Texas A&M University-Kingsville (TAMUK), Texas Woman's University (TWU), and the University of Alabama (UA)-are developing improved curricula and learning environment models that are based on four primary thrusts: integration of subject matter within the curriculum, improvement of the human interfaces that affect educational environments, technology-enabled learning, and continuous improvement through assessment and evaluation. The Foundation Coalition partners draw on their diverse strengths and mutual support to construct improved curricula and learning environments; to attract and retain a more demographically diverse student body, and to graduate a new generation of engineers who can more effectively solve the increasingly complex, rapidly changing societal problems.
