  • Publication number: 20210089226
    Abstract: Aspects of the present invention disclose a method, computer program product, and system for implementing wear leveling across a drive array. The method includes one or more processors identifying a set of storage devices in a storage system. Each storage device of the set of storage devices assigned to a corresponding endurance tier based on historical utilization. The endurance tiers correspond to a range of device endurance remaining for a storage device. The method further includes one or more processors monitoring real-time endurance factor information for the set of storage devices. In response to determining that the monitored real-time endurance factor information indicates that the set of storage devices are not wearing evenly, the method further includes one or more processors reassigning at least one storage device of the set of storage devices to an updated endurance tier, corresponding to utilization of the at least one storage device.

  • Patent number: 9509980
    Abstract: A monoscopic low-power mobile device is capable of creating real-time images and videos for multiple viewpoints from a single captured view. The device uses statistics from an autofocusing process to create a block depth map of a single capture view. Artifacts in the block depth map are reduced and an image depth map is created. Alternate views are created from the image depth map using a Z-buffer based surface recover process and a disparity map which is a function of a geometric vision model.

  • Patent number: 8970680
    Abstract: A monoscopic low-power mobile device is capable of creating real-time stereo images and videos from a single captured view. The device uses statistics from an autofocusing process to create a block depth map of a single capture view. Artifacts in the block depth map are reduced and an image depth map is created. Stereo three-dimensional (3D) left and right views are created from the image depth map using a Z-buffer based 3D surface recover process and a disparity map which is a function of the geometry of binocular vision.

  • Patent number: 8948266
    Abstract: An adaptive Intra-refresh (IR) technique for digital video encoding adjusts IR rate based on video content, or a combination of video content and channel condition. The IR rate may be applied at the frame level or macroblock (MB) level. At the frame level, the IR rate specifies the percentage of MBs to be Intra-coded within the frame. At the MB level, the IR rate defines a statistical probability that a particular MB is to be Intra-coded. The IR rate is adjusted in proportion to a combined metric that weighs estimated channel loss probability, frame-to-frame variation, and texture information. The IR rate can be determined using a close-form solution that requires relatively low implementation complexity. For example, such a close-form does not require iteration or an exhaustive search. In addition, the IR rate can be determined from parameters that are available before motion estimation and compensation are performed.

  • Patent number: 8711926
    Abstract: Techniques for estimating distortion due to quantization of data are described. A histogram with multiple bins may be obtained for a set of coefficients to be quantized. Distortion due to quantization of the set of coefficients may be estimated based on the histogram and average distortions for the histogram bins. The number of coefficients in each bin may be multiplied with an average distortion for the bin to obtain a per-bin distortion. The per-bin distortions for all of the bins may be accumulated and scaled with a correction factor to obtain the estimated distortion. The techniques may be used to estimate distortions for a set of coding elements. Distortion and rate may be estimated for each coding element for each of multiple quantization steps. A set of quantization steps may be selected for the set of coding elements based on the estimated distortions and the estimated rates for the set of coding elements for different quantization steps.

  • Patent number: 8681867
    Abstract: This disclosure describes selective deblock filtering techniques that are particularly useful with coding standards that do not specify in-loop deblock filtering for standard compliance. In accordance with this disclosure, deblock filtering may be selectively performed with respect to block boundaries of a given video block being coded, a motion compensation process can be performed using a filtered version of the prediction video frame used to code the given video block, or both. This disclosure also provides selection rules that can be applied to determine what type of deblocking techniques to apply in various scenarios. The selection rules may improve the video coding and may also ensure that mismatch between video blocks at an encoder and a decoder is not introduced by the deblock filtering.

  • Patent number: 8594180
    Abstract: A stereo 3D video frame includes left and right components that are combined to produce a stereo image. For a given amount of distortion, the left and right components may have different impacts on perceptual visual quality of the stereo image due to asymmetry in the distortion response of the human eye. A 3D video encoder adjusts an allocation of coding bits between left and right components of the 3D video based on a frame-level bit budget and a weighting between the left and right components. The video encoder may generate the bit allocation in the rho (?) domain. The weighted bit allocation may be derived based on a quality metric that indicates overall quality produced by the left and right components. The weighted bit allocation compensates for the asymmetric distortion response to reduce overall perceptual distortion in the stereo image and thereby enhance or maintain visual quality.

  • Publication number: 20130251048
    Abstract: Error concealment is used to hide the effects of errors detected within digital video information. A novel spatial error concealment technique is disclosed for use when the error concealment mode decision determines that spatial error concealment should be used for reconstruction. The novel spatial error concealment technique divides a corrupt macroblock into multiple regions, such as, a corner region, a row adjacent to the corner region, a column adjacent to the corner region, and a remainder main region. Those regions are then reconstructed and information from earlier reconstructed regions may be used in later reconstructed regions. Finally, a macroblock refreshment technique is disclosed for preventing error propagation from harming non-corrupt inter-blocks. Specifically, an inter-macroblock may be ‘refreshed’ using spatial error concealment if there has been significant error caused damage that may cause the inter-block to propagate the errors.
