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 new wavelet-based video codec is presented, which joins vectors in the same subbands of different frames in a frame group and uses the properties of the human visual system. Perceptual weights are designed and used in the vector selection and quantisation of the wavelet coefficients. Results indicate a significant improvement in frame quality compared to JPEG2000 image sequence coder.
