Snapshot compressive imaging (SCI) encodes high-speed scene video into a snapshot measurement and then computationally makes reconstructions, allowing for efficient high-dimensional data acquisition. Numerous algorithms, ranging from regularization-based optimization and deep learning, are being investigated to improve reconstruction quality, but they are still limited by the ill-posed and information-deficient nature of the standard SCI paradigm. To overcome these drawbacks, we propose a new key frames assisted hybrid encoding paradigm for compressive video sensing, termed KH-CVS, that alternatively captures short-exposure key frames without coding and long-exposure encoded compressive frames to jointly reconstruct high-quality video. With the use of optical flow and spatial warping, a deep convolutional neural network framework is constructed to integrate the benefits of these two types of frames. Extensive experiments on both simulations and real data from the prototype we developed verify the superiority of the proposed method.
