Quality strategy and method for transmission : application to image

Abstract : This thesis focuses on the study of image quality strategies in wireless communication systems and the design of new quality evaluation metrics:Firstly, a new reduced-reference image quality metric, based on statistical model in complex wavelet domain, has been proposed. The magnitude and the relative phase information of the Dual-tree Complex Wavelet Transform coefficients are modelled by using probability density function and the parameters served as reduced-reference features which will be transmitted to the receiver. Then, a Generalized Regression Neural Network approach is exploited to construct the mapping relation between reduced-reference feature and the objective score.Secondly, with the new metric, a new decoding strategy is proposed for a realistic wireless transmission system, which can improve the quality of experience (QoE) while ensuring the quality of service (QoS). For this, a new database including large physiological vision tests has been constructed to collect the visual preference of people when they are selecting the images with different decoding configurations, and a classifier based on support vector machine or K-nearest neighboring is utilized to automatically select the decoding configuration.Finally, according to specific property of the distortion and people's preference, an improved metric has been proposed. It is the combination of global feature and local feature and has been demonstrated having a good performance in optimization of the decoding strategy.The experimental results validate the effectiveness of the proposed image quality metrics and the quality strategies.
