ABSTRACT Region of interest (ROI) coding has become a new challenge for low
bandwidth media channels. This paper presents an original method for low
bit rate compression using this concept. It is based on a new
progressive coding technique called LAR (Locally Adaptive Resolution)
combining a spatial nonuniform sampling and a variable block-size
spectral transform. Only little overhead is required for the ROI shape
description, and the data structure enabling the inner ROI enhancement
is totally correlated to this shape. This technique is also very fast,
allowing real-time and interactive multimedia applications

    ABSTRACT: In this study, we investigate a variable-resolution approach to video compression based on Conditional Random Field and statistical conditional sampling in order to further improve compression rate while maintaining high-quality video. In the proposed approach, representative key-frames within a video shot are identified and stored at full resolution. The remaining frames within the video shot are stored and compressed at a reduced resolution. At the decompression stage, a region-based dictionary is constructed from the key-frames and used to restore the reduced resolution frames to the original resolution via statistical conditional sampling. The sampling approach is based on the conditional probability of the CRF modeling by use of the constructed dictionary. Experimental results show that the proposed variable-resolution approach via statistical conditional sampling has potential for improving compression rates when compared to compressing the video at full resolution, while achieving higher video quality when compared to compressing the video at reduced resolution.

    ABSTRACT: The joint source-channel coding system proposed in this paper has two aims: lossless compression with a progressive mode and the integrity of medical data, which takes into account the priorities of the image and the properties of a network with no guaranteed quality of service. In this context, the use of scalable coding, locally adapted resolution (LAR) and a discrete and exact Radon transform, known as the Mojette transform, meets this twofold requirement. In this paper, details of this joint coding implementation are provided as well as a performance evaluation with respect to the reference CALIC coding and to unequal error protection using Reed-Solomon codes.
