Paper Abstract

We propose a new, efficient 2D object-based coding method for very low bit rate video compression based on affine motion compensation with triangular patches under connectivity constraints. We, then, compare this approach with a 3D object-based method using a flexible wireframe model of a head-and-shoulders scene. The two approaches will be compared in terms of the resulting bitrates, peak-signal-to-noise-ratio (PSNR), visual image quality, and execution time. We show that 2D object-based approaches with affine transformations and triangular mesh models can simulate all capabilities of 3D object-based approaches using wireframe models under the orthographic projection, at a fraction of the computational cost. Moreover, 2D object-based methods provide greater flexibility in modeling arbitrary input scenes in comparison to 3D object-based methods.
