Semantic parts have shown a powerful discriminative capacity for action recognition. However, many existing methods select parts according to predefined heuristic rules, which may cause the correlation among parts to be lost, or do not appropriately consider the cluttered candidate part space, which may result in weak generalizability of the resulting action labels. Therefore, better... Read more on IEEE Xplore

Multiple description coding (MDC) is a technique for video transmission over error prone networks where the descriptions are routed over multiple paths. Intra coding such as MDC provides error resiliency but coding in this mode must be decided with care since it degrades the compression ratio. In this paper, we present our investigation results for a new intra coding approach in MDC. We have... Read more on IEEE Xplore

This paper proposes a universal string matching (USM) approach to screen content coding (SCC). USM uses a primary reference buffer and a secondary reference buffer for string matching and includes three modes: general string (GS) mode, constrained string 1 (CS1) mode, and constrained string 2 (CS2) mode. The CS1 mode and CS2 mode are constrained cases of the GS mode. Due to the diversity of the... Read more on IEEE Xplore
