The Development of an Object-linked Broadcasting System
Kanatsugu, Yasuaki ; Misu, Toshihiko ; Takahashi, Masaki ; Gohshi, Seiichi ;
Journal of Broadcast Engineering, volume 9, issue 2, 2004, Pages 102~109
We have proposed an Object-linked Broadcasting Service that displays various data related to the object onscreen. In thls paper, we describe the structure of the Object-linked Broadcasting System that will enable our proposal to be realized, and report new techniques that we have developed to create the system. We have carried out the experiment to confirm the system performance as well as execution of each technology assembling the system. We have confirmed that the performance of the system we developed satisfies the proposed specification based on user requirements and current technology.
An algorithm to find all solutions of blind deconvolution

Journal of Broadcast Engineering, volume 9, issue 2, 2004, Pages 110~118
This paper shows that blind deconvolution has only finite solutions when an original image and a point spread function are nonzero over a restricted domain, in other words, an observed image has a compact support. The key of the proof is to use z-transformations and factorizations of polynomials. Then, we propose an algorithm to find all finite solutions under the boundary condition. Finally, we confirm that we can extract all sets of an original image and a point spread function from a degraded image by using our algorithm in numerical examples.

We have developed a prototype super-high-definition (SHD) digital cinema distribution system that can store, transmit, and display eight-million-pixel motion pictures that have the image quality of a 35-mm film movie. The system contains a movie server, a real-time decoder, and an SHB projector. Using a Gigabit Ethernet link and TCP/IP, the server transmits JPEG2000 compressed motion picture data streams to the decoder at transmission speeds as high as 300 Mbps. The received data streams are decompressed by the decoder, and then projected onto a screen via the projector. By using an enlarged TCP window, multiple TCP streams, and a shaping function to control the data transmission quantity, we achieved real-time streaming of SHD movie data at about 300 Mbps between Chicago and Los Angeles, a distance of more than 3000 km. We also improved the decoder performance to show movies with Image qualities of 450 Mbps or higher. Since UDP is more suitable than TCP for fast long-distance streaming, we have developed an SHD digital cinema UDP relay system, in which UDP is used for transmission over a fast long-distance network. By using four pairs of server-side-proxy and decoder-side-proxy, 450-Mbps movie data streams could be transmitted.
A Study on the Effect of Disparity-based Asymmetrical Filtering on the Binocular Stereoscopic Video
Journal of Broadcast Engineering, volume 9, issue 2, 2004, Pages 131~141
Current binocular stereoscopic displays cause visual discomfort when objects with large disparities are present in the scene. One solution for improving visual comfort is synthetic depth-of-field processing, which simulates the characteristics of a human visual system. With this technique, visual comfort is improved by blurring portions of the background and/or foreground in the scene. However, this technique has the drawback of degrading overall image quality because the blurring is typically applied to both left and right images. To alleviate the visual discomfort, we propose a novel disparity-based asymmetrical filtering technique. Proposed technique applies the filtering to the image of one eye only, and controls the blur level according to the disparity information between stereoscopic images. We investigate the effects of this technique on stereoscopic video by measuring visual comfort and apparent sharpness. Our results indicate that disparity-based asymmetrical filtering can improve visual comfort of stereoscopic video while it maintains apparent sharpness if unfixated regions with large disparities are blurred under the appropriate filtering condition
A Bit Rate Control of MPEG-4 AVC Video Coding Using Adaptive Quantization
Journal of Broadcast Engineering, volume 9, issue 2, 2004, Pages 142~150
MPEG-4 AVC is an international video coding standard that is being developed. The standardization is mainly targeted at a very high compression ratio. MPEG-4 AVC is a general video coding technology that may be used in various applications. Therefore, MPEG-4 AVC needs an efficient rate control method to be applied in various communication environments. This paper is based on the rate control method that considers human visual characteristic. In this paper, we propose the constant bit rate control method using adaptive quantization and scene change detection. Experiments performed using various test images and experimentation results exhibits a favorable performance over existing rate control methods.
Content-based Video Indexing and Retrieval System using MPEG-7 Standard
Journal of Broadcast Engineering, volume 9, issue 2, 2004, Pages 151~163
In this paper, we propose a content-based video indexing and retrieval system using MPEG-7 standard to retrieve and manage videos efficiently. The proposed system consists of video indexing module for a video DB and video retrieval module to allow various query methods on a web environment. Video indexing module stores metadata such as manually typed in keywords, automatically recognized character names, and MPEG-7 visual descriptors extracted by indexing module into a DB in a sever side. A user can access to retrieval module by a web and retrieve desired videos through various query methods like keywords, faces, example and sketch. For this retrieval system, we propose ATC(Adaptive Twin Comparison) as a cut detection method for efficient video indexing and QBME(Query By Modified Example) as an improved content-based query method for the convenience of users. Experimental results show that the proposed ATC method detects cuts well and the proposed QBME method provides the conveniences better than existing query methods such as QBE(Query By Example) and QBS(Query By Sketch).
Automatic Cast-list Analysis System in Broadcasting Videos
Journal of Broadcast Engineering, volume 9, issue 2, 2004, Pages 164~173
In this paper, we propose a system that can analyze appearance interval of casts by detecting and recognizing casts in broadcasting videos. The cast is one of the most important characteristics in broadcasting videos such as drama and sports. In this paper, we propose the ACAV(Automatic Cast-list Analysis in Videos) system that analyzes cast-list automatically in video. The ACAV system consists of FAGIS(FAce reGIStration) which registers detected faces into the face DB and FACOG(FAce reCOGnition) that analyses the cast-list in video sequence using the face DB. We evaluate performance of the ACAV system by comparing with FaceIt, one of the most well-known commercial systems for the cast-list analysis. The ACAV shows face detection and recognition rates of 84.3% and 75.7% that are about 30% and 27.5% higher than those of FaceIt, respectively. The ACAV system can be applied to mass broadcasting videos management system for broadcasters and video management system of PVR(Personal Video Recorder) and mobile phone for the public.
