Paper Abstract

In this paper we propose a novel, post-processing system for compressed video sources. The proposed system explores the interaction between artifact reduction and sharpness/resolution enhancement to achieve optimal video quality for compressed (e.g. MPEG-2) sources. It is based on the Unified Metric for Digital Video Processing (UMDVP), which adaptively controls the post-processing algorithms according to the coding characteristics of the decoded video. The experiments carried out on several MPEG-2 encoded video sequences have shown significant improvement in picture quality compared to a system without the UMDVP control and to a system that did not exploit the interaction between artifact reduction and video enhancement. The UMDVP as well the proposed post-processing system can be easily adapted for different coding standard, such as MPEG-4, H.26x.
