  • Patent number: 10269121
    Abstract: Techniques related to improved video frame segmentation based on color, motion, and texture are discussed. Such techniques may include segmenting a video frame of a video sequence based on only dominant color when the frame does not have a dominant motion nor a global motion in a high probability region of dominant color within the video frame.
    Type: Grant

  • Publication number: 20170339417
    Abstract: Techniques related to improved video coding based on face detection, region extraction, and tracking are discussed. Such techniques may include performing a facial search of a video frame to determine candidate face regions in the video frame, testing the candidate face regions based on skin tone information to determine valid and invalid face regions, rejecting invalid face regions, and encoding the video frame based on valid face regions to generate a coded bitstream.

  • Publication number: 20170339409
    Abstract: Techniques related to improved video coding based on skin tone detection are discussed. Such techniques may include selecting from static skin probability histograms and/or a dynamic skin probability histogram based on a received video frame, generating a skin tone region based on the selected skin probability histogram and a face region of the video frame, and encoding the video frame based on the skin tone region to generate a coded bitstream.
