Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

A system and method for video coding. Energy-concentrating transform operations are performed on video data to obtain transformed data. Nested scalar quantization is performed on the transformed data to generate blocks of coset indices. Bit planes of the blocks of coset indices are encoded using irregular repeat accumulate (IRA) encoders to generate corresponding bit streams. The bit streams are transmitted to a destination device over a channel. A decoder of the destination device receives input data, corresponding to transmitted bit streams, from the channel. The input data is decoded, using side information, to obtain estimates for the blocks of coset indices. Output video data (i.e., an estimate of the original video data) is generated using the estimated blocks of coset indices and the side information.
