TitleMid-Level Content-Based Video Coding using Texture Analysis and Synthesis
AbstractThe work aims to show that the Mean Squared Error (MSE) criterion, typically used in hybrid video codecs as H.264/MPEG4-AVC, is not an adequate coding distortion measure for high frequency regions displayed with limited spatial resolution. It shall be shown that global similarity measures are better suited for assessing the distortion of such textures, as no MSE-accurate reconstruction of the latter is required.
