Abstract
The guiding principle of this study is to find an optimum way to simplify the contours produced by a second generation coding scheme based on morphological segmentation. For this purpose, evaluations of existing methods for contour simplification are carried out first. Based on the human visual phenomenon, a new nonlinear filter by means of majority operation is designed to simplify the contours in order to obtain an optimum compromise between the cost for contour coding and visual quality. Applications for region-based still image coding and video coding are demonstrated. Experimental results have shown an average of 20% reduction of bits for contour coding while keeping good visual quality.
