The scalable high efficiency video coding (SHVC) is an extension of high efficiency video coding (HEVC). It introduces multiple layers and inter-layer prediction, thus significantly increases the coding complexity on top of the already complicated HEVC encoder. In inter prediction for quality SHVC, in order to determine the best possible mode at each depth level, a coding tree unit can be recursively split into four depth levels.

This paper deals with the design of a sensing matrix along with a sparse recovery algorithm by utilizing the probability-based prior information for compressed sensing systems. With the knowledge of the probability for each atom of the dictionary being used, a diagonal weighted matrix is obtained and then the sensing matrix is designed by minimizing a weighted function such that the Gram of the equivalent dictionary is as close to the Gram of dictionary as possible.

Research in light field (LF) processing has heavily increased over the last decade. This is largely driven by the desire to achieve the same level of immersion and navigational freedom for camera-captured scenes as it is currently available for CGI content. Standardization organizations such as MPEG and JPEG continue to follow conventional coding paradigms in which viewpoints are discretely represented on 2-D regular grids.

Acoustic event detection deals with the acoustic signals to determine the sound type and to estimate the audio event boundaries. Multi-label classification based approaches are commonly used to detect the frame wise event types with a median filter applied to determine the happening acoustic events. However, the multi-label classifiers are trained only on the acoustic event types ignoring the frame position within the audio events.

In this article, we study resilient distributed diffusion for multi-task estimation in the presence of adversaries where networked agents must estimate distinct but correlated states of interest by processing streaming data. We show that in general diffusion strategies are not resilient to malicious agents that do not adhere to the diffusion-based information processing rules. 

Outdoor images are subject to degradation regarding contrast and color because atmospheric particles scatter incoming light to a camera. Existing haze models that employ model-based dehazing methods cannot avoid the dehazing artifacts. These artifacts include color distortion and overenhancement around object boundaries because of the incorrect transmission estimation from a depth error in the skyline and the wrong haze information, especially in bright objects.

The vector graphics with gradient mesh can be attributed to their compactness and scalability; however, they tend to fall short when it comes to real-time editing due to a lack of real-time rasterization and an efficient editing tool for image details. In this paper, we encode global manipulation geometries and local image details within a hybrid vector structure, using parametric patches and detailed features for localized and parallelized thin-plate spline interpolation in order to achieve good compressibility, interactive expressibility, and editability.

The analysis of sound information is helpful for audio surveillance, multimedia information retrieval, audio tagging, and forensic applications. Environmental audio scene recognition (EASR) and sound event recognition (SER) for audio surveillance are challenging tasks due to the presence of multiple sound sources, background noises, and the existence of overlapping or polyphonic contexts.

Smoke detection plays an important role in industrial safety warning systems and fire prevention. Due to the complicated changes in the shape, texture, and color of smoke, identifying the smoke from a given image still remains a substantial challenge, and this has accordingly aroused a considerable amount of research attention recently.

We propose an approach for digitally altering people's outfits in images. Given images of a person and a desired clothing style, our method generates a new clothing item image. The new item displays the color and pattern of the desired style while geometrically mimicking the person's original item. Through superimposition, the altered image is made to look as if the person is wearing the new item.
