9780124059061: Communicating Pictures: A Course in Image and Video Coding

Communicating Pictures starts with a unique historical perspective of the role of images in communications and then builds on this to explain the applications and requirements of a modern video coding system. It draws on the author's extensive academic and professional experience of signal processing and video coding to deliver a text that is algorithmically rigorous, yet accessible, relevant to modern standards, and practical. It offers a thorough grounding in visual perception, and demonstrates how modern image and video compression methods can be designed in order to meet the rate-quality performance levels demanded by today's applications, networks and users. With this book you will learn: * The limits of human visual performance and how visual redundancy can be exploited to reduce bitrate and improve rate-distortion performance* How transform based methods can be used to effect spatial decorrelation and how motion estimation can be used to effect temporal decorrelation* How these are integrated, together with efficient symbol encoding methods, into the hybrid block-based coding architecture that is employed in all modern video compression standards, with particular focus on the features used in H.2 64/AVC and HEVC* About practical issues when implementing a codec, such as picture boundary extension and complexity reduction, with particular emphasis on efficient algorithms for transforms, motion estimators and error resilience* About the conflicts between conventional video compression, based on variable length coding and spatiotemporal prediction, and the requirements for error resilient transmission* About the pitfalls associated with the transmission of real-time video over networks (wireless and fixed), showing how transmission errors influence a codec and how to mitigate their impact* How to assess the quality of coded images and video content, both through subjective trials and by using perceptually optimised objective metrics* About the features, operation and performance of the state-of-the-art High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) standard* About future trends and the demands for more immersive video formats, including a discussion of potential solutions based on parametric and region-based compression methods Covers the basics of video communications and includes a strong grounding in how we perceive images and video, and how we can exploit redundancy to reduce bitrate and improve rate distortion performance. . Companion website features a Matlab based learning aid, facilitating an easier understanding of image and video compression methods and implementation . Gives deep insight into the pitfalls associated with the transmission of real-time video over networks (wireless and fixed) . Uses the state-of- the- art video coding standard (H.264/AVC) as a basis for algorithm development in the context of block based compression . Insight into future video coding standards such as the new ISO/ITU High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) initiative, which extends and generalizes the H.264/AVC approach. . Gives examples of parametric and region-based compression methods that currently offer world-beating performance and which are strong candidates for future standards.
