The three-dimensional wavelet transform (3D-WT) has been proposed for volumetric data coding, since it can provide lossless coding and top-quality reconstruction: two key features highly relevant to medical imaging applications. In this paper, we present experimental results for four new algorithms based on the Classic 3D-WT. The proposed algorithms are(More)
This paper presents the architecture of a router designed to efficiently support traffic generated by multimedia applications. The router is targeted for use in clusters and LANs rather than in WANs, the latter being served by communication substrates such as ATM. The distinguishing features of the proposed router architecture are the use of small(More)
ÐHigh-speed local area networks (LANs) consist of a set of switches interconnected by point-to-point links, and hosts linked to those switches through a network interface card. High-speed LANs may change their topology due to switches being turned on/off, hot expansion, link remapping, and component failures. In these cases, a distributed reconfiguration(More)
Designers of large parallel computers and clusters are becoming increasingly concerned with the cost and power consumption of the interconnec-tion network. A simple way to reduce them consists of reducing the number of network components and increasing their utilization. However, doing so without a suitable congestion management mechanism may lead to(More)
–Distributed Video Coding (DVC) is an increasingly popular approach among the researchers in video coding during past few years due to its attractive and promising features. In DVC, the majority of the computational complexity has been shifted from encoder to the decoder in comparison to its conventional counterparts, including MPEG and H.26x enabling a(More)
