Title

A video compression algorithm for security applications

Author

M. Ryan Bales

Abstract

"High-security areas often include multiple locations that should have little traffic, such as critical corridors and points of access. Video monitoring such locations is desirable, but due to low activity, often results in wasted bandwidth as the same static scene is repeatedly transmitted. Such waste can preclude the use of video surveillance in low traffic situations since bandwidth is limited, and available bandwidth is reserved for high traffic environments. A real-time video compression scheme at the camera could reduce bandwidth consumption enough to make video surveillance feasible in all locations. In this thesis, an algorithm is presented which exploits features common to security settings and to real-time compression"--Abstract, leaf iii.
