The existence of fast networks in Malaysia has enabled the delivery of TV and newspaper content over an Internet connection. This has led to new types of integrated publications that include features from both media through interactive TV. To manage this publication effectively, a software tool known as web-based multimedia news management system (MNMS) was… (More)
This paper describes the design and implementation of a web-based Collaborative enabled Multimedia Content Authoring and Management System (CMCAMS) for organizing, integrating and composing personalized and interactive course notes for online education. A 5-layered architecture is proposed for the CMCAMS and is implemented using the Java 2 Enterprise… (More)
This paper presents a Gaussian noise filter that uses a sigmoid shaped membership function to model image information in the spatial domain. This function acts as a tunable smoothing intensification operator. With a proper choice of two sigmoid parameters 't' and 'a', the filter strength can be tuned for removal of Gaussian noise in intensity images. An… (More)
