Abstract 

Full motion video (FMV) in unreliable, low-bit rate network channels suffers from quality issues such as jitter and block artifacts. In this paper, we introduce Vision Guided Compression (VGC), as a pre-processing technology that can be coupled with standards-based video coding, to provide FMV at low-bit rates. VGC utilizes computer vision algorithms to track salient features and keep them sharp, while non-salient features are lowpass filtered. With this approach, VGC provides an additional spatial parameter to gracefully tune the QoS, while providing FMV and preserving salient visual information.
