Temporal motion models for video mosaicing and synthesis by Michael Owen( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Video compression aims to reduce video file size without impacting visual quality. Existing algorithms mostly use transform coders to convert information from the spatial to frequency domain, and attenuate or remove high frequency components from the sequence. This enables the omission of a large proportion of high frequency information with no discernible visual impact. Sprite-based compression encodes large portions of a scene as a single object in the video sequence, recreating the object in subsequent frames by warping or morphing the sprite to mimic changes in subsequent frames. This thesis sought to improve several aspects of existing sprite based compression approaches, employing a temporal motion model using a low order polynomial to represent the motion of an object across multiple frames in a single model rather than a series of models. The main outcome is the demonstration that motion models used by sprite based video compression can be extended to a full three dimensional model, reducing the overall size of the model, and improving the quality of the sequence at low bit rates. A second outcome is the demonstration that super-resolution processing is not necessary if lanczos spatial interpolation is used instead of bilinear or bi-cubic interpolation, resulting in a savings in computational time and resources. A third outcome is the introduction of a new blending model used to generate image mosaics that improves the quality of the synthesised sequence when zoom is present in the sequence for a given bit-rate. A final outcome is demonstrating that performing superresolution processing and sub-sampling back to the original resolution prior to compression provides benefits in some circumstances

Michael Owen : off the record by Michael Owen( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 2004 and updated in 2006 to include his first full season with Real Madrid. Michael Owen reveals the highlights and pitfalls of being a professional footballer in his first official autobiography, which contains his personal reflections on eight years in the game, including two World Cups, two European Championships and goalscoring records for club and country. After his famous goal against Argentina in France '98, Michael Owen was forced to grow up almost overnight, his sudden fame propelling him to stardom to the extent that the hopes of a football nation now rest on the slender frame of this 26-year-old. In his autobiography, Owen is forthright in his views on the game: he reacts to the accusations of diving, his susceptibility to injury, and his alleged gambling addiction; he writes candidly about his career at Liverpool, from Roy Evans to Gerard Houllier, and the reasons behind him leaving the club that made him as a player; and he talks about his ambitions for the England team and his new club Newcastle. He is also opinionated about his England striking partnership with Wayne Rooney and the threat from Jermaine Defoe; his complex and at times difficult relationship with coaches such as Glenn Hoddle, Kevin Keegan and Sven-Goran Eriksson; and he has strong views on the thug culture still rife in English football. Outside of the game, he talks openly for the first time about the death threats to him and his family, his relationship with childhood sweetheart Louise Bonsall ' including her serious injury from a riding accident ' and their baby Gemma as well as his passion for horse racing and betting. This edition also covers Owen's dramatic transfer to Real Madrid, the frustrations of his first season in La Liga and the reasons for his return to England

Michael Owen : my story : the autobiography of the British Lions and Wales rugby legend by Michael Owen( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Michael Owen is a rugby legend who captained the Welsh team to their first Grand Slam victory in 27 years, led the British Lions, and was the 1000th player to be capped by Wales. Here he tells his own life storythe story of a true sportsman. Michael's talent became apparent early on and, having given up on studying for a degree to play for Pontypridd, he was soon playing at international level as an under-19 and an under-21. He followed his try-scoring Man of the Match debut against Canada with an impressive first Heineken Cup campaign. The highlight of his Pontypridd career was in 2001-2 season which saw this promising young team deliver by winning the Principality Cup and reaching the final of the European Challenge Cup. As well as the triumph that goes hand-in-hand with great sporting achievement, Michael has also been through his fair share of lows. Following his first cap, his first child was born seriously ill and the new father was forced to choose between his career and his family. Not long after this trauma, the national side were dubbed the worst Welsh team in history. This fascinating sporting biography takes an in-depth look at these peaks and troughs, as well as giving the lowdown on the tumultuous Lions tour of New Zealand, the rifts within the Welsh rugby camp, and how Michael coped with having his dream career brought to an end by injury. This book is a must-read for any rugby or sports fan
