An apparatus and methods for processing video data are described. The invention provides a representation of video data that can be used to assess agreement between the data and a fitting model for a particular parameterization of the data. This allows the comparison of different parameterization techniques and the selection of the optimum one for continued video processing of the particular data. The representation can be utilized in intermediate form as part of a larger process or as a feedback mechanism for processing video data. When utilized in its intermediate form, the invention can be used in processes for storage, enhancement, refinement, feature extraction, compression, coding, and transmission of video data. The invention serves to extract salient information in a robust and efficient manner while addressing the problems typically associated with video data sources

Cache memory having pipeline structure and method for controlling the same

One embodiment of the present invention is a cache memory arranged between a processor and a low-speed memory and performing a pipeline processing of a memory access made by the processor. In a first stage, the cache memory reads out a tag address from a tag memory. In a second stage, the cache memory performs a hit decision by a hit decision unit. When the hit decision result is a miss hit, the cache memory performs an update control of the tag memory and a behavior control of a bypass circuit for supplying a data held in a latch circuit to the hit decision unit by bypassing the tag memory in a third stage. The latch circuit is configured to hold a tag address included in a input address supplied from the processor. When the hit decision result is the miss hit, the cache memory further performs an update of the data memory by reading out of the data from the low-speed memory and an outputting of the data read out from the low-speed memory to the processor in a fourth stage just after the third stage or in the later stage.

System and method for low-resolution signal rendering from a hierarchical transform representation

A “multi-resolution signal renderer” provides a computationally efficient process for generating reduced-resolution versions of a hierarchical transform coded digital signal from the encoded coefficients of that signal. The multi-resolution signal renderer begins by decoding the transform coded signal up to the highest hierarchical resolution not exceeding the desired signal resolution. The multi-resolution signal renderer then operates in one of two modes to generate reduced resolution signals. First, to generate signals at coded hierarchical resolution levels, DC coefficients of the transform coefficients are scaled, and then lowpass filtered to reduce aliasing in the signal. Second, to generate intermediate resolution signals between coded hierarchical resolution levels, the multi-resolution signal renderer retrieves the encoded coefficient blocks for the next highest resolution coding level, lowpass filters those blocks in the transform domain, performs an inverse transform, and then downsamples the resulting signal to the desired resolution.
