Title: METHODS AND DEVICES FOR OBJECT DETECTION IN CODED VIDEO DATA
Abstract:
The invention relates to methods and devices for object detection in coded video data. Coded video data is parsed to identify block coding types and/or coding indicators that relate to predictable image activity of the block that are assigned to certain indicators. After evaluation of a respective indicator for one or more blocks of an image of the coded vide data a decision is made whether to assign this indicator to a object map or not. This invention can be used for video surveillance, industrial or medical imaging applications.
