SIPL research task: Content Insertion to Compressed Video Stream


Pictures (or video) insertion in an MPEG-2 video stream, when done in the pixel domain, requires decoding of the compressed video and then encoding of the frames into a MPEG-2 stream which contains the inserted video. In this activity we plan to design and implement a video-in-video insertion system which works in the DCT domain. This insertion method requires only partial decoding and encoding of the compressed video, while the operations are performed on the DCT coefficients blocks.

By performing the insertion in the DCT domain we can reduce the computational cost and time. This is done while preserving the quality of the processed video sequence.
