This paper investigates the use of elliptic Fourier descriptors as a shape descriptor forencoding the silhouette of a person. Shape descriptors are here used for predicting the shape ofsilhouettes in missing frames within a sequence. This prediction scheme is applied to the caseof generating in-between images in a low frame rate videoconferencing system, where thereconstructed silhouette is used as a binary mask for reducing the computational time for theframe reconstruction.
