A general framework for shiftable position-based dual-image reversible data hiding

This paper proposes an improved method for shiftable position-based dual-image reversible data hiding. During the procedure of embedding data, the total number of shiftable coordinates is set as the parameter to make a trade-off between distortion and embedding rate. First, the optimal parameter is sought and the one-to-one code table is generated according to the expected...

Multi-scale contrast and relative motion-based key frame extraction

The huge amount of video data available these days requires effective management techniques for storage, indexing, and retrieval. Video summarization, a method to manage video data, provides concise versions of the videos for efficient browsing and retrieval. Key frame extraction is a form of video summarization which selects only the most salient frames from a given video. Since...

A novel texture-based asymmetric visibility threshold model for stereoscopic video coding

Asymmetric stereoscopic video coding is becoming increasingly popular, as it can reduce the bandwidth required for stereoscopic 3D delivery without degrading the visual quality. Based on the perceptual theory of binocular suppression, the left and right views of stereoscopic video are coded with different levels of quality. However, existing asymmetric perceptual coding...

Improved BM3D image denoising using SSIM-optimized Wiener filter

Image denoising is considered a salient pre-processing step in sophisticated imaging applications. Over the decades, numerous studies have been conducted in denoising. Recently proposed Block matching and 3D (BM3D) filtering added a new dimension to the study of denoising. BM3D is the current state-of-the-art of denoising and is capable of achieving better denoising as compared...

Triple Threshold Statistical Detection filter for removing high density random-valued impulse noise in images

This study presents a novel noise detection algorithm which satisfactorily detects noisy pixels in images corrupted by random-valued impulse noise of high levels up to 80% noise density. Three levels of adaptive thresholds along with an auxiliary condition are used in this method which adequately addresses the drawbacks of existing methods, especially the miss detection of noise...

A neighborhood regression approach for removing multiple types of noises

Image denoising is an important first step to provide cleaned images for follow-up tasks such as image segmentation and object recognition. Many image denoising filters have been proposed, with most of the filters focusing on one particular type of additive or multiplicative noise. In this article, we propose a novel neighborhood regression approach. Using the neighboring pixels...

Automated approach for splicing detection using first digit probability distribution features

Digital image tampering operations destroy inbuilt fingerprints and create own new fingerprint in the tampered region. Considering the Internet speed and storage space, most of the images are circulated in the JPEG format. In a single compressed JPEG image, the first digits of DCT coefficients follow a logarithmic distribution. This distribution is not followed by DCT...

Memory requirement is a key issue when servicing more number of nodes in a heterogeneous environment. We have to ensure an optimum buffer size in order to reduce the initial latency. In this paper, we propose a novel approach, which involves, augmenting a virtual memory (VM) with the existing physical memory of the video buffer. In addition to the benefits of improved queuing...

Hands-on: deformable pose and motion models for spatiotemporal localization of fine-grained dyadic interactions

We introduce a novel spatiotemporal deformable part model for the localization of fine-grained human interactions of two persons in unsegmented videos. Our approach is the first to classify interactions and additionally provide the temporal and spatial extent of the interaction in the video. To this end, our models contain part detectors that support different scales as well as...

Hierarchical semantic segmentation of image scene with object labeling

Semantic segmentation of an image scene provides semantic information of image regions while less information of objects. In this paper, we propose a method of hierarchical semantic segmentation, including scene level and object level, which aims at labeling both scene regions and objects in an image. In the scene level, we use a feature-based MRF model to recognize the scene...

SIP-FS: a novel feature selection for data representation

Multiple features are widely used to characterize real-world datasets. It is desirable to select leading features with stability and interpretability from a set of distinct features for a comprehensive data description. However, most of existing feature selection methods focus on the predictability (e.g., prediction accuracy) of selected results yet neglect stability. To obtain...

Nighttime low illumination image enhancement with single image using bright/dark channel prior

Nighttime low illumination image enhancement is highly desired for outdoor computer vision applications. However, few works have been studied towards this goal. In addition, the low illumination enhancement problem becomes very challenging when the depth information of a low illumination image is unknown. To address this problem, in this paper, we propose a dual channel prior...

In this paper, we describe a multi-camera system for parcel inspection which detects signs of damages and cues of tampering. The proposed system has been developed within the EU project SAFEPOST as a part of a multi-sensor scanning modality, to enhance safety and security of parcels travelling on the European Postal Supply Chain. Our work addresses in particular the safety of...

Cage Active Contours for image warping and morphing

Cage Active Contours (CACs) have shown to be a framework for segmenting connected objects using a new class of parametric region-based active contours. The CAC approach deforms the contour locally by moving cage’s points through affine transformations. The method has shown good performance for image segmentation, but other applications have not been studied. In this paper, we...
