Image segmentation provides a powerful semantic description of video
imagery essential in image understanding and efficient manipulation of
image data. In particular, segmentation based on image motion defines
regions undergoing similar motion allowing image coding system to more
efficiently represent video sequences. This paper describes a general
iterative framework for segmentation of video data . The objective of
our spatiotemporal segmentation is to produce a layered image
representation of the video for image coding applications whereby
video data is simply described as a set of moving layers.
