Paper Abstract

The paper presents an algorithm attempting to combine both intra-frame and interframe information to reconstruct lost macroblocks due to imperfect communication channels when decoding a MPEG bitstream. The algorithm is a POCS-based (Projection Onto the Convex Set) iterative restoration algorithm incorporating both the temporal and spatial constraints derived from a set of analysis performed on the picture sequence. Often the use of the temporal information in the restoration process is complicated by the scene changes or large random motion activities. To reliably utilize the temporal information, we formulate a series of test to determine the usefulness of the temporal information. In addition, the tests yield a temporal constraint if the temporal information is deemed good. Along with the spatial constraints as described in [1], the temporal constraint is used in the proposed iterative restoration algorithm.
