The recent years have witnessed the widespread of light field imaging in interactive and immersive visual applications. To record the directional information of the light rays, larger storage space is required by light field images compared with conventional 2D images. Hence, the efficient compression of light field image is highly desired for further applications. In this paper, we propose a novel light field image compression scheme using multi- branch spatial transformer networks based view synthesis.


Rate distortion optimization (RDO) is the basis for algorithm optimization in video coding, such as mode decision, rate control and etc. Minimizing the rate distortion coding cost is usually employed to determine the optimal coding parameters such as quantization level, coding mode, and etc. However, rate and distortion calculations for optimal solution decision from massive possible candidates suffer from dramatically high computation complexity.


An enhanced version of a recently introduced family of variable length binary codes with multiple pattern delimiters is presented and discussed. These codes are complete, universal, synchronizable, they have monotonic indexing and allow a standard search in compressed files. Comparing the compression rate on natural language texts demonstrates that introduced codes appear to be much superior to other known codes with similar properties. A fast byte-aligned decoding algorithm is constructed, which operates much faster than the one for Fibonacci codes.


Compressive sensing is a simultaneously signal acquisition and compression technique for efficiently acquiring and reconstructing a signal from a small number of measurements, which can be obtained by linear projections onto sparse signal. In order to further compress the measurements, many works applied intra prediction-based measurement coding. In this paper, we proposed temporal redundancy reduction in compressive video sensing by using moving detection and inter-coding.


We propose a new architecture for distributed image compression from a group of distributed data sources. The work is motivated by practical needs of data-driven codec design, low power consumption, robustness, and data privacy. The proposed architecture, which we refer to as Distributed Recurrent Autoencoder for Scalable Image Compression (DRASIC), is able to train distributed encoders and one joint decoder on correlated data sources. Its compression capability is much better than the method of training codecs separately.


Re-Pair is a grammar compression scheme with favorably good compression rates. The computation of Re-Pair comes with the cost of maintaining large frequency tables, which makes it hard to compute Re-Pair on large scale data sets. As a solution for this problem we present, given a text of length n whose characters are drawn from an integer alphabet, an O(n^2) time algorithm computing Re-Pair in n lg max(n, τ) bits of working space including the text space, where τ is the number of terminals and non-terminals.
