Paper Abstract

The time varying nature of wireless channels can cause severe error bursts or dropouts. It is important to recover lost data in coded images in interactive video communication over wireless network. A good spatial interpolation strategy is considered as essential for replenishing missing blocks in still images and video frames. This paper proposes a novel spatial directional interpolation scheme which makes use of the local geometric information extracted from the surrounding blocks. Specifically, statistics of the local geometric structure are modeled as a bimodal distribution. The two nearest surrounding layers of pixels are converted into binary pattern to reveal the local geometric structure. A measure of directional consistency is employed to resolve ambiguity of possible connections of the transition points on the inner layer. The transition lines can be specified within one-pixel accuracy, unlike previous directional filtering schemes which usually filter along only one single direction chosen from a finite candidate set. The new approach produces results that are superior to that of other approaches, in terms of both peak signal-to-noise ratio (PSNR) and visual quality. The computation is also much reduced. It is observed that local structures such as edges, streaks and corners are well preserved in the reconstructed image.
