Huifang Sun, Anthony Vetro: Adaptive video coding method. Mitsubishi Electric Information Technology Center America, Dirk Brinkman, October 19, 1999: US05969764 (102 worldwide citation)

A method adaptively encodes a sequence of frames including video objects to provide a compressed video signal. The encoding is via a buffer having a ariable input rate and a constant output rate. The encoding uses a discrete cosine transform to produce coefficients that are quantized to generate ima ...

Anthony Vetro, Ajay Divakaran, Huifang Sun: Video transcoding using syntactic and semantic clues. Mitsubishi Electric Research Laboratories, Dirk Brinkman, June 3, 2003: US06574279 (61 worldwide citation)

A method for transcoding a compressed video partitions the compressed video into hierarchical levels, and extracts features from each of the hierarchical levels. One of a number of conversion modes of a transcoder is selected dependent on the features extracted from the hierarchical levels. The comp ...

Anthony Vetro, Huifang Sun, Yao Wang: Object based bitstream transcoder. Mitsubishi Electric Research Laboratories, Dirk Brinkman, December 10, 2002: US06493386 (54 worldwide citation)

A compressed bitstream is scaled down to a reduced rate bitstream by first demultiplexing a compressed input bitstream to extract video objects as elementary input bitstreams having a first bit rate. A transcoder converts each elementary input bitstream to an elementary output bitstream having a sec ...
