My research is focused on the predictive coding of generalized video
signals. A generalized video signal is an extension of a traditional
video signal, obtained by sampling a scene in a single domain (e.g. the
time domain), to a signal obtained by sampling a scene in multiple domains.
An example generalized video signal is a stereoscopic video signal,
where the scene is sampled in both the time and perspective domains.
Current displacement compensated predictive coding schemes often fail
to recognize the non-trivial, time-varying correlation between the
residual signal and predicted signal for practical images. The effect
of this shortcoming is magnified in the coding of generalized video
signals, where the number of bits available for coding the residual
images is often severely constrained. My research attempts to develop
scalable concepts for the predictive coding of generalized video signals
that make better use of the predicted signal to reproduce the original
images with the minimal amount of information. This work has lead to
the development of a new class of predictive coding techniques,
called restoration based coding, that is scalable to multiple
predictions and capable of exploiting all correlations available at
the both the encoder and decoder.
