Scalable FPGA Hardware Acceleration for H.264 Motion Estimation
This thesis presents a scalable FPGA-based ME architecture that supports real-time H.264 ME for a wide range of video resolutions ─ from 640x480 VGA to 1920x1088 High Definition (HD).
Measurement Data Classification in Information and Measuring Systems
A new classification of data based on the analysis of statistical properties of difference data series is proposed, which makes it possible to more accurately estimate the prospects of their compression.
Setup and Safety of Powered TEES
This chapter will expand on Chap. 2 which focused on powered transcanal endoscopic ear surgery (TEES) by looking at the surgical setup and safety concerns related primarily to powered TEES as well as
Characterizing the Spectral Responsivity of a Hyperspectral Camera
Hyperspectral cameras take pictures containing wavelength information of the imaged view. The wavelength information, or spectrum, is imaged via dozens of spectral channels of the camera. The number
Design and Fabrication of a Ratiometric Planar Optode for Simultaneous Imaging of pH and Oxygen
It is shown that the planar optode measuring system provides a simple method with low cross-talk for pH/Oxygen imaging in aqueous applications.

File interchange handbook for images, audio, and metadata
This presentation explains the development of the Windows Media 9-Advanced System Format (ASF) and some of the elements that went into its creation, as well as providing some examples of how the format was used in practice.
The Technology of Video and Audio Streaming
From the Publisher: For broadcasters, web developers, and project managers implementing streaming media systems, David Austerbery shows how to deploy the technology on your site, from video and
The MPEG-4 Book
A comprehensive, targeted guide to the MPEG-4 standard—and its use in cutting-edge applications, Fernando Pereira and Touradj Ebrahimi demonstrate how MPEG- 4 addresses tomorrow's multimedia applications more successfully than any previous standard.
