The goal of this tutorial is to prepare the viewer to become a user, implementer, modifier, and possibly creator of image and video compression and transmission algorithms. This video is a three-part modular course in image and video compression and transmission algorithms, which are enabling modern visual communications in fax, digital cameras, Internet, video telephone, digital video and TV, and HDTV. The course concentrates on the data compression algorithms and transmission techniques that make the telecommunication revolution possible. Dr. William Pearlman's image coding module covers the SPIHT coder, invented by Amir Said and Dr. Pearlman. The SPIHT coder has been rated by leading research laboratories as the best image coder currently available. Accompanying the full video course are over 700 pages of notes and the text, Handbook of Visual Communications (Academic Press, 1995), edited by Hseuh-Ming Hang and John Woods. The viewer may earn 1.5 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for the 16-hour tutorial and a certificate of achievement upon successful completion of the exam.
