At current video coding layer, video data can be divided into different coding layers, e.g. sequence, picture, slice and macroblock. A coding layer contains same properties of video data. At slice layer, a certain amount of macroblocks are grouped to a slice, and coded as raster order within the slice. The slice structure can be used at rate control, error resilience and video transmission areas. Base on the concept of slice, the slice structure is extended at this paper. A so-called slice set structure groups slices that have some same properties together. The slices within a slice set can share and exchange data. Due to this superior feature, the proposed slice set structure can be used at ROI coding, and further improve error resilience capability © 2012 IEEE.

Depth map is a kind of video clip that contains 3D object's depth information, and is an important coding feature in the recently 3D video coding standards, which has been applied for the latest 3D coding approaches, e.g. MV-HEVC and 3D-HEVC. It has been approved that the support of depth map coding can significantly improve the coding performance for 3D videos, and provide more flexibility for 3D applications. Some previous works show that depth map has some different coding properties compared to the traditional 2D sequences. Many coding tools have different performance influence and behaviors on these two kind of video clips. This paper concentrates on the investigation and analysis of those phenomena for depth map coding. © 2014 Asia-Pacific Signal and Information Processing Ass.

The first generation of Audio-video coding standard (AVS1) will become an international standard of IEEE (IEEE.1857). The second generation of Audio-video coding standard (AVS2) is a successor to IEEE.1857 which targets to higher coding efficiency, especially for high resolution videos, with reasonable complexity increase. Currently, AVS2 working draft is developed, in which symbolic techniques of IEEE.1857, such as logarithmic arithmetic coding, are still used. It also introduces new coding tools, e.g. flexible partition structure which is based on macro-block structure and high efficient prediction methods utilizing more texture information and temporal redundancies, etc. The performance of AVS2 is improved by 37% compared to the IEEE.1857 Jiaqiang Profile and 16.4% compared to H.264 in average. This paper provides an overview of the framework of AVS2-video coding standard. © 2013 IEEE.

A new non-square quadtree transform structure is proposed to improve the coding efficiency of the HEVC video coding algorithm. The proposed method, designed for non-square inter prediction blocks, incorporates non-square transforms with the residual quadtree transform (RQT) structure. It improves the transform structure adaptation to complex image contents through exploiting the directional features and contours, breaking the limitation of the RQT structure when meeting with the directional scenarios. Through the test, both of satisfied subjective and objective performance improvement can be achieved and there is nearly no implementation cost and no encoding time increase of the proposed method. © 2012 IEEE.

We propose an online tracking algorithm in which the object tracking is achieved by using subspace learning and non-negative matrix factorization (NMF) under the partile filtering framework. The object appearance is modeled by a non-negative combination of non-negative components learned from examples observed in previous frames. In order to robust tracking an object, group sparsity constraints are included to the non-negativity one. In addition, the Alternating Direction Method of Multipliers (ADMM) algorithm is proposed for efficient model updating. Qualitative and quantitative experiments on a variety of challenging sequences show favorable performance of the proposed algorithm against 9 state-of-the-art methods. © 2016 IEEE.

In this paper, we cast tracking as a novel multi-task learning problem and exploit various types of visual features. We use an on-line feature selection mechanism based on the two-class variance ratio measure, applied to log likelihood distributions computed with respect to a given feature from samples of object and background pixels. The proposed method is integrated in a particle filtering framework. We jointly consider the underlying relationship across different particles, and tackle it in a unified robust multi-task formulation. We show that the proposed formulation can be efficiently solved using the Alternating Direction Method of Multipliers (ADMM) with a small number of closed-form updates. Both the qualitative and quantitative results demonstrate the superior performance of the proposed approach compared to several state of-the-art trackers. © 2016 IEEE.

A simplified depth modeling mode (DMM) selection algorithm is proposed for 3D-HEVC depth intra coding. Since DMMs are designed for coding units (CUs) with edge or sharp transition, it is not efficient for smooth CU compression. Based on the observation that most CUs in a depth frame are smooth or flat, we notice most of the DMM full-Rate-Distortion (RD) search could be skipped. Using the modes in full-RD list as the skip signal, we propose a simplified DMM selection algorithm to avoid unnecessary DMM full-RD cost calculation. Since modes in full-RD list already exist, we can derive the skip signal without any additional calculation. The test result for the proposed simplified selection algorithm shows 21.8% encoding time saving with only 0.16% bitrate increasing in coded and synthesized view for All-Intra test case. © 2014 IEEE.

This paper proposes a fast mode decision algorithm for 3D High Efficiency Video Coding (3D-HEVC) depth intra coding. In the current 3D-HEVC design, it is observed that for most of the cases, full rate-distortion (RD) cost search of Bi-Partition mode could be skipped since most coding units (CUs) of depth map are very flat or smooth while Bi-Partition modes are designed for CUs with edge or sharp transition. Using the rough RD cost value calculated by HEVC Rough Mode Decision as a selection threshold, we propose a fast Bi-Partition modes selection algorithm to speed up the encoding process. The test result for the proposed fast algorithm reports a 34.4% encoding time saving with a 0.3% bitrate increase on synthesized views for the All-Intra test case and negligible impact under the random access test case. Moreover, by simply varying the selection threshold, we can make a tradeoff between encoding time saving and bitrate loss based on the requirement of different applications. © 2015 Elsevier B.V.

A Fast Segment-wise DC Coding (SDC) algorithm is proposed for 3D-HEVC depth intra coding. Since SDC is a supplementary option for intra prediction modes, it is not necessary to check SDC option for all intra candidate modes during full Rate-Distortion (RD) cost calculation. Based on the observation that most Prediction Units (PUs) choose the same intra coding mode with and without SDC option, we propose a fast SDC coding algorithm to avoid unnecessary full-RD cost calculation. The performance evaluation is based on HTM-11.0 and the experimental result for the proposed fast algorithm shows up to 25% encoding time saving with only 0.19% BD-bitrate increase in coded and synthesized view for All-Intra test case. © 2015 IEEE.
