Human Factor Research on the Measurement of Subjective Three Dimensional Fatigue
Li, Hyung-Chul O. ;
Journal of Broadcast Engineering, volume 15, issue 5, 2010, Pages 607~616

The methods developed to measure visual fatigue so far are quite few and lack of validity, and more importantly, they do not figure out the complex properties of the visual fatigue. The purpose of the research was to analyze the factors comprising the visual fatigue and to develop the method to measure it validly. The results are summarized as follows. First, we found that the 3D visual fatigue was comprised of four independent factors (visual stress, eye pain, body pain and image blurring factors). Second, we developed 29 items that measure four factors of 3D visual fatigue. Finally, the watching duration and binocular disparities affected the visual fatigue as had been expected. These results imply that the developed method does measure the three dimensional fatigue validly.

At 37th VCEG meeting in Jan. 2009, Toshiba proposed Quadtree-based Adaptive Loop Filter (QALF). The basic concept of QALF is to apply Wiener filter to decoded image after the conventional deblocking filter and to represent the filter on/off flag data for each basic filtering unit in a more efficient way of quadtree structure. QALF could enhance the compression performance of around more than 9%, but the structure of one filter for a decoded frame leaves room for further improvement in the sense that optimal filter for one region of a frame could quite different from the optimal filter for other parts of a picture. This paper proposes multiple adaptive loop filters for better utilization of local characteristics of decoded frame to optimize the region-based Wiener filters. Additional filters, proposed in this paper, cover separate spatial area of each decoded frame according to the performance of previously designed filter(s) to provide the flexibility of rate-distortion based selection of the number of filters.

Recently, DVC (Distributed Video Coding) techniques are drawing a lot of interests as one of the future research works to achieve low complexity encoding in various applications. But, due to the limited computational complexity, the performances of DVC algorithms are inferior to those of conventional international standard video coders, which use zig-zag scan, run length code, entropy code and skipped macroblock. In this paper, in order to overcome the performance limit of the DVC system, the distortion for every block is estimated when side information is found at the decoder and then we propose a new selective block encoding scheme which provides the encoder side with the motion information for the highly distorted blocks and then allows the sender to encode the motion compensated frame difference signal. Through computer simulations, it is shown that the coding efficiency of the proposed scheme reaches almost that of the conventional inter-frame coding scheme.

Generally existing video codec employs entropy coding to deal with residual signals with considering temporal and spatial properties. Scalable Video Coding(SVC) which is extension of H.264/AVC has three technical concepts for removing redundancies between inter-layers. In spite of using novel prediction method between inter-layers in SVC, it is still using same entropy coding method to residual signals. According to the studies, the residual obtained by inter-layer prediction technique has different features of residual signal acquired by spatial or temporal prediction technique. In this paper, we propose an efficient entropy coding method which codes the residual signal obtained by inter-layer prediction with regarding its features adequately. We re-designed the Coded Block Pattern(CBP) table suitably for inter-layer texture prediction. The experiments show that the proposed method can further reduce the BD-Bitrate up to average 2.20% in 4CIF and 1.14% in CIF resolution compared to the existing JSVM 9.18.

Journal of Broadcast Engineering, volume 15, issue 5, 2010, Pages 665~671
DOI : 10.5909/JBE.2010.15.5.665
In this paper, a turbo equalizer is proposed for the digital video broadcasting for terrestrial - 2nd generation (DVB-T2) system. The proposed turbo equalizer is consisted with the maximum a posteriori (MAP) and low density parity check (LDPC) decoder. The channel information for the soft-input-soft-output (SISO) MAP equalizer is based on the least square (LS) channel estimator. The performance is analyzed through computer simulations in terms of the iteration number.
Adaptive Selection of Weighted Quantization Matrix for H.264 Intra Video Coding

This paper presents an adaptive quantization matrix selection scheme for H.264 video encoding. Conventional H.264 coding standard applies the same quantization matrix to the entire video sequence without considering local characteristics in each frame. In this paper, we propose block adaptive selection of quantization matrix according to edge directivity of each block. Firstly, edge directivity of each block is determined using intra prediction modes of its spatially adjacent blocks. If the block is decided as a directional block, new weighted quantization matrix is applied to the block. Otherwise, conventional quantization matrix is used for quantization of the non-directional block. Since the proposed weighted quantization is designed based on statistical distribution of transform coefficients in accordance with intra prediction modes, we can achieve high coding efficiency. Experimental results show that the proposed scheme can improve coding efficiency by about 2% in terms of BD bit-rate.

In this paper, we examined the possibility of the transmission capacity increase by an extension and a modification of ATSC 8-VSB transmission system for broadcasting a 3D HDTV services through 6 MHz terrestrial channel. First we examined the performance and the limit of conventional ATSC 8-VSB transmission system. After that LDPC & BCH code are employed instead of conventional RS & TCM code and the transmission parameter is founded for the capacity increase with resonable TOV by varying the code-rates and increasing the modulation constellation. We do not consider the perfect backward compatibility for maximum transmission capacity increase like DVB-S2 system.

Contour artifact is known as the unintentional result of quantizing a flat area that has smooth gradients. In this letter, a decontouring algorithm is proposed to efficiently remove false contours that occur in typical block-based video coding applications. First, the algorithm goes through a refinement stage to determine candidate blocks probably having noticeable false contours with different kinds of features in a block. Then, pseudo-random noise masking is applied to those blocks to mitigate the contour artifacts. This block-based selective decontouring can efficiently remove the unnecessary processing of those blocks that have no false contour, which incidentally ensures a minor penalty in visual quality and computational complexity. The proposed algorithm was demonstrated, integrated into H.264/AVC, that visual quality can be significantly enhanced with an ignorable rate-distortion (RD) loss and an minor increase in computational complexity.

Recently, a need to encode a depth image has been raising with the deployment of 3D video services. The 3DV/FTV group in the MPEG has standardized the compression method of depth map image. Because conventional depth map coding methods are independently encoded without referencing the color image, coding performance of conventional algorithms is poor. In this letter, we proposed a novel method which rearranged modes of depth blocks according to modes of corresponding color blocks by using a correlation between color and depth images. In experimental results, the proposed method achieves bits reduction of 2.2% compared with coding method based on JSVM.
