Communicating pictures : a course in image and video coding by David R. Bull

By David R. Bull

Communicating Pictures starts off with a distinct old point of view of the position of pictures in communications after which builds in this to give an explanation for the functions and necessities of a contemporary video coding approach. It attracts at the authors broad educational adventure of sign processing and video coding to carry a textual content that's algorithmically rigorous, but obtainable, correct to trendy criteria, and sensible. It deals a radical grounding in visible notion, and demonstrates how glossy snapshot and video compression tools might be designed with a view to meet the rate-quality functionality degrees demanded by way of todays purposes, networks and clients. With this ebook you'll learn:

  • Practical concerns whilst imposing a codec, similar to photo boundary extension and complexity aid, with specific emphasis on effective algorithms for transforms, movement estimators and blunder resilience
  • Conflicts among traditional video compression, in accordance with variable size coding and spatiotemporal prediction, and the necessities for errors resilient transmission
  • How to evaluate the standard of coded pictures and video content material, either via subjective trials and through the use of perceptually optimised target metrics
  • Features, operation and function of the state of the art excessive potency Video Coding (HEVC) standard
  • Covers the fundamentals of video communications and incorporates a robust grounding in how we understand photographs and video, and the way we will be able to take advantage of redundancy to lessen bitrate and increase price distortion performance
  • Gives deep perception into the pitfalls linked to the transmission of real-time video over networks (wireless and fixed)
  • Uses the state-of- the-art video coding general (H.264/AVC) as a foundation for set of rules improvement within the context of block established compression
  • Insight into destiny video coding criteria corresponding to the hot ISO/ITU excessive potency Video Coding (HEVC) initiative, which extends and generalizes the H.264/AVC approach

Survivability and Traffic Grooming in WDM Optical Networks

The arrival of fiber optic transmission structures and wavelength department multiplexing has resulted in a dramatic elevate within the usable bandwidth of unmarried fiber structures. This publication offers precise insurance of survivability (dealing with the danger of wasting huge volumes of site visitors information because of a failure of a node or a unmarried fiber span) and site visitors grooming (managing the elevated complexity of smaller consumer requests over excessive ability information pipes), either one of that are key concerns in glossy optical networks.

Principles of Semiconductor Network Testing (Test & Measurement)

This e-book gathers jointly entire info which attempt and method execs will locate worthwhile. The options defined may also help make sure that try out tools and knowledge accumulated replicate genuine gadget functionality, instead of 'testing the tester' or being misplaced within the noise flooring. This e-book addresses the elemental concerns underlying the semiconductor attempt self-discipline.

Opportunistic Spectrum Sharing and White Space Access: The Practical Reality

Information the paradigms of opportunistic spectrum sharing and white area entry as potent potential to meet expanding call for for high-speed instant verbal exchange and for novel instant conversation purposes This e-book addresses opportunistic spectrum sharing and white house entry, being fairly conscious of useful concerns and suggestions.

From photon to pixel : the digital camera handbook

The digicam conceals extraordinary technological thoughts that have an effect on the formation of the picture, the colour illustration or automatic measurements and settings. ** From photon to pixel photon ** describes the equipment either from the perspective of the physics of the phenomena concerned, as technical parts and software program it makes use of.
