Primary amebic meningoencephalitis a rapidly fatal CNS infection caused by the free-living ameba Naegleria fowleri. The disease is acquired by swimming in fresh water and is being recognized with increasing frequency. Results of early diagnosis and treatment with amphotericin and other drugs suggest therapeutic optimism. Epidemiological surveys have shown(More)
As successor to JPEG, JPEG2000 aims to realize a very low bitrate. Although JPEG2000’s rate distortion has been improved by approximately 30% against JPEG, as on most images compressed using overlapping transforms-based algorithms, one can notice visible spurious oscillations, or ringing artifacts, around the edges of a JPEG2000-compressed image. In this(More)
In this paper, we propose a joint source channel coding (JSCC) scheme to the transmission of fixed images for wireless communication applications. The ionospheric channel which presents some characteristics identical to those found on mobile radio channels, like fading, multipath and Doppler effect is our test channel. As this method based on a wavelet(More)
The purpose of this paper is to describe the results of a CDMA digital transmission simulation in terms of quality, based on deterministic modeling of the propagation channel. This modeling allows a fast computation of the channel Power Delay Profile (PDP), which is the common input of a digital transmission system. Thus, the harmful impact of the channel(More)
The aim of this paper is to present a joint source channel coding scheme for image transmission over a non frequency selective Rayleigh fading channel. Because of the very high BER, a JPEG or JPEG2000 compressed image cannot be transmitted without major visual degradation quality. On the one hand we use a compression algorithm based on wavelet transform and(More)
In this article, we propose a new multi-resolution, geometry-driven error concealment method for missing data recovery on grey-level and color for any block-based compression schemes, such as JPEG or MPEG. It requires no extra redundancy bits nor source-destination interactions, as opposed to classical FEC/ARQ schemes. The reconstruction process consists in(More)
The aim of this paper is to present a robust still-image transmission scheme and show its performance when used on a frequency flat fading channel. By following a Joint Source- Channel Coding approach, it is shown that image transmission with good visual quality is possible even with BER as high as 4%. Furthermore, this scheme only requires 26% redundancy(More)
