The block discrete cosine transform (BDCT) has been widely used in current image and video coding standards, owing to its good energy compaction and decorrelation properties. However, because of independent quantization of DCT coefficients in each block, BDCT usually gives rise to visually annoying blocking compression artifacts, especially at low bit rates. In this paper, to reduce blocking... Read more on IEEE Xplore

In this paper, we mathematically analyze one of the most challenging issues in color image-guided depth upsampling: the texture copy artifacts. The optimal guidance weights denoted by balanced weights are proposed to best suppress texture copy artifacts. To both suppress texture copy artifacts and preserve depth discontinuities, a new general weighting scheme called variable bandwidth weighting... Read more on IEEE Xplore

This paper proposes a method of estimating depth from two kinds of stereo images: color stereo images and infrared stereo images. An infrared dot pattern is projected on a scene by a projector so that infrared cameras can capture the scene textured by the dots and the depth can be estimated even where the surface is not textured. The cost volumes are calculated for the infrared and color stereo... Read more on IEEE Xplore
