Workshop on Recent Advances in Distributed Video Coding

 

 

November 6, 2007,

Lisbon, Instituto Superior Técnico

 

Organized by:

 

www.discoverdvc.org

 

DISCOVER is a 24 month project of the IST FET programme of the European Union which ends in November 2007. The main objective of DISCOVER is to study the major theoretical concepts underlying Distributed Video Coding and to present the most important applications.

Distributed Video Coding

Video coding research and standardization have been adopting until now a video coding paradigm where it is the task of the encoder to explore the source statistics, leading to a complexity balance where complex encoders interact with simpler decoders. Distributed Video Coding (a particularization of Distributed Source Coding) adopts a completely different coding paradigm by giving the decoder the task to exploit the source statistics to achieve efficient compression. This coding paradigm is particularly adequate to emerging applications such as wireless video cameras and wireless low-power surveillance networks, disposable video cameras, medical applications, sensor networks, multi-view image acquisition, networked camcorders, etc.

 

Workshop objectives

To present recent advances in Distributed Video Coding (DVC).

To present the work developed by researchers active in DVC or related fields (by invitation).

To present the main results of the DISCOVER project.
