Offset based leaky prediction for error resilient ROI coding


During the period of transmission, video data usually suffer from transmission errors inevitably. Intra update is a common approach to stop error propagation. However, damaged images cannot recover until next update in case of errors, which often leads to annoying effect. In this paper, we propose an enhanced leaky prediction approach that enables the Region-Of-Interest (ROI) of images to recover gently from the immediate succeeding frame of erroneous ones in favor of better human perception. Moreover, an optimized offset compensation technique is designed to improve coding performance. Experimental results show that the proposed scheme can achieve better image quality for ROI and the fluctuation of bitrate is greatly reduced, compared to the intra update method.
