Keynote Speaker III


Prof. Ajay B Gadicha

Sant Gadge Baba Amravati University. India

Title: Phenomenon of Detection of Shot Frontiers & Feature Extraction from Video Data.

Abstract: During the last decades, a continuous demand and creation of digital video information have occurred. The creation of digital video has caused an exponential growth of digital video content. To increase the usability of such large volume of videos, a lot of research has been made. Video Summarization, in particular, has been proposed to rapidly browse large video collections. It has also been used to efficiently index and access video content.

To summarize any type of video, researchers have relied on visual features contained in frames. In order to extract these features, different techniques have used local or global descriptors. Nonetheless, no extensive evaluation has been made about the usefulness of both types of descriptors in video summarization.

One important contribution of this research is to propose a method for analyzing and identifying the features extraction of each frame and apply semantic video summarization and scene classifier that not only produce meaningful and informative video summaries but it generates the fruitful results.

Abstract: Sensing device technology, which is the key to realizing the IoT (Internet of Things) system, is increasingly becoming important. A Switched-Capacitor (SC) technology using CMOS OP Amplifiers is promising for realizing analog video signal processors in IoT sensing devices. This is due to the easy integration in monolithic ICs using the CMOS technology and the possible operation at high speed. In SC filter ICs, the realization of low power consumption OP Amps is an important matter to avoid unstable operation.

In this talk, power consumption reduction techniques of OP Amps are discussed. At first, some conventional OP Amp circuits for reducing power consumption are introduced. To solve the low speed operation and high power consumption problems in these circuits, the 3-V power Low-Voltage Folded-Cascode (LV FC) OP Amp with a Dynamic Switching Bias (DSB) circuit proposed by the lecturer will be presented. This is capable of attaining high gain even at low power supply voltages and operating at a high switching speed covering video signal bandwidths. Then, as applications of this DSBFC OP Amp, 2nd-order and 4th-order SC Low-Pass Filters (LPFs) operating at a switching frequency of 14.3 MHz, will be shown in theory and concrete configuration and the usefulness of a high-order SC LPF for realizing suitable roll-off filter characteristics be made clear. A high-speed Multi-Channel DSBFC OP Amp (MC OP Amp) with a fast settling time while keeping a low distortion will be also proposed. The MC SC LPF using this MC OP Amp, which enables a high attenuation in a wide stop-band due to the high speed settling and the small feed-through in sampling/CMOS switches, will be proposed subsequently. Simulation results showed that the practicable stop-band attenuation below -41dB in the MC SC LPF was obtained.

In conclusion, the lecturer will state that the low power consumption techniques using the DSB circuit should come to be important as analog signal processing circuits in IoT Sensing devices.
