Adaptive coding of a prediction error in hybrid video coding

The present invention relates to a method for coding a video signal using hybrid coding, comprising: reducing temporal redundancy by block based motion compensated prediction in order to establish a prediction error signal, deciding whether to transform the prediction error signal into the frequency domain, or to maintain the prediction error signal in the spatial domain for encoding.. .


Spatiotemporal prediction for bidirectionally predictive (b) pictures and motion vector prediction for multi-picture reference motion compensation

Several improvements for use with bidirectionally predictive (b) pictures within a video sequence are provided. In certain improvements direct mode encoding and/or motion vector prediction are enhanced using spatial prediction techniques.

Method and processing video signal

The present invention relates to a method and apparatus for processing a video signal, which can increase the accuracy of the motion vector prediction through motion vector scaling which takes a difference in the temporal distance between reference pictures into consideration. To this end, the present invention provides a video signal processing method and a video signal processing apparatus using the same, and the method comprises the steps of: scaling at least one neighboring partition motion vector for a motion vector prediction of the current partition; scaling the neighboring partition motion vector, which has been selected, when the reference picture of the neighboring partition motion vector is different from the reference picture of the current partition; acquiring a motion vector prediction value of the current partition using the scaled motion vector; and acquiring a motion vector of the current partition using the motion vector prediction value..

Determining temporal relevance of newsfeed stories

A social networking system generates stories based on actions of users in the system and provides a newsfeed to users that contain stories that related to one or more of their friends in the system. Although the story ranking algorithm includes a time decay to penalize older stories, stories may actually become stale at different rates.

Radiation ct apparatus

A radiation ct apparatus that can gain a clear tomogram without a rotation axis runout and without fail through a single ct scan and a simple operation is provided. When the data on the projection with radiation collected through a ct scan is first reconstructed through an arithmetic operation by a reconstruction arithmetic operation unit 13, temporary coordinates that have been set in advance as the coordinates of the projected rotation axis so as to construct a tomogram along a predetermined sliced surface are used, this tomogram is displayed on the screen for changing the rotation axis coordinates that include the temporary coordinates, and the coordinates of the projected rotation axis are shifted by any amount in any direction through an operation on the screen so that a reconstruction arithmetic operation is again carried out in the reconstruction arithmetic operation unit 13..
