Recent Advances in Video Coding and Security

Submission Deadline: 30 June 2019

IEEE Access invites manuscript submissions in the area of Recent Advances in Video Coding and Security.

With the development of imaging and computer graphics technologies, high dynamic range (HDR) video, immersive 360-degree video (4K and above video resolution), 3D video, and other ultra-high definition (UHD) video have become a reality. Since the UHD video can provide a more realistic visual experience, it attracts much more  attention. Compared with  traditional video, the UHD video can efficiently enhance the visual clarity while its video data volume increases significantly. The huge data volume becomes a challenge for processing, storing, and transmitting the UHD video. Hence, efficient video coding techniques are vital for the widespread applications of UHD video.

Moreover, with the development of internet technology, the video data has been widely used in multimedia devices, such as video surveillance, webcast, and so on. For video security, the sensitive video content needs to be protected before transmission. Data encryption is an efficient way to achieve this purpose. Compared with the text and binary data, the video data has large volume, and requires real-time processing. Since the traditional encryption algorithms don’t consider the video characteristics, efficient video encryption algorithms should be designed for video data security.

This Special Section in IEEE Access focuses on the theoretical and practical design issues of video coding and security. Our aim is to bring together researchers, industry practitioners, and individuals working on the related areas to share their new ideas, latest findings, and state-of-the-art achievements with others. This will provide readers with a clear understanding of the recent achievements on video coding and security.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Low-complexity video coding algorithms
  • Rate control and bit allocation optimization algorithms for video coding
  • Transform optimization algorithms for video coding
  • Advanced filter algorithms for video coding
  • Advanced transcoding algorithms
