Paper Abstract

A novel video sequence compression scheme is proposed in order to realize the efficient and economical transmission of video sequence, and also the region-based functionality of MPEG-4. The CPM and NCIM fractal coding scheme is applied on each region independently by a prior image segmentation map (alpha plane) which is exactly the same as defined in MPEG-4. The first n frames of video sequence are encoded as a "set" using the Circular Prediction Mapping (CPM) and encode the remaining frames using the Non Contractive Interframe Mapping (NCIM). The CPM and NCIM accomplish the motion estimation and compensation, which can exploit the high temporal correlations between the adjacent frames of video sequence. The experimental results with the monocular video sequences provide promising performances at low bit rate coding, such as the application in video conference. We believe the proposed fractal video codec will be a powerful and efficient technique for the region-based video sequence coding.
