IEEE TMM Article

Recently, a novel uncoded (pseudoanalog) scheme called SoftCast is proposed for wireless video transmission, which eliminates the cliff effect of the state-of-the-art source-channel coding based schemes and achieves linear quality transition within a wide range of channel signal-to-noise ratio. Therefore, SoftCast-like uncoded and hybrid transmission has become an attractive research issue for natural 2-D video. However, very few studies focus on the SoftCast-based wireless transmission of the 3-D video (3DV) currently.

Generating images via a generative adversarial network (GAN) has attracted much attention recently. However, most of the existing GAN-based methods can only produce low-resolution images of limited quality. Directly generating high-resolution images using GANs is nontrivial, and often produces problematic images with incomplete objects.

The scalable video coding extensions of the High Efficient Video Coding (HEVC) standard (SHVC) have adopted a new quadtree-structured coding unit (CU). The SHVC test model (SHM) needs to test seven intermode sizes and one intramode size at depth levels of “0,” “1,” “2,” and four intermode sizes and two intramode sizes at a depth level of “3” for interframe CUs.

Using deep convolutional neural networks (CNN) to predict the depth from a single image has received considerable attention in recent years due to its impressive performance. However, existing methods process each single image independently without leveraging the multiview information of video sequences in practical scenarios.

Image decolorization is a task aiming to transform a color image to a grayscale one and is a dimension reduction process which inevitably suffers from information loss. The general goal of image decolorization is to preserve the color contrast of the color image. According to human visual study, exposure affects the human visual perception, and low-exposure areas or over-exposure areas will first attract the sense of sight.

Watermarking plays an important role in identifying the copyright of an image and related issues. The state-of-the-art watermark embedding schemes, spread spectrum and quantization, suffer from host signal interference (HSI) and scaling attacks, respectively. Both of them use a fixed embedding parameter, which is difficult to take both robustness and imperceptibility into account for all images.

Screen content coding (SCC) is the extension to high-efficiency video coding (HEVC) for compressing screen content videos. New coding tools, intrablock copy (IBC), and palette (PLT) modes, are introduced to encode screen content (SC) such as texts and graphics. The IBC mode is used for encoding repeating patterns by performing block matching within the same frame, while the PLT mode is designed for SC with few distinct colors by coding the major colors and their corresponding locations using an index map.

In past years, various encrypted algorithms have been proposed to fully or partially protect the multimedia content in view of practical applications. In the context of digital TV broadcasting, transparent encryption only protects partial content and fulfills both security and quality requirements. 

This paper presents a new method of secret three-dimensional object sharing (S3DOS), which allows sharing of three-dimensional (3-D) objects, while preserving its file format by selectively encrypting a 3-D object in order to sufficiently protect the visual nature of the content. 

This paper addresses the problem of encoding the video generated by the screen of an airplane cockpit. As other computer screens, cockpit screens consist of computer-generated graphics often atop a natural background. Existing screen content coding schemes fail notably in preserving the readability of textual information at the low bitrates required in avionic applications.
