Event: Efficient compression, processing and interactive imaging with JPEG2000

On Wednesday 7th October Professor David Taubman will be coming to Perth to present a seminar on the JPEG2000 image format.

As image and video frame sizes expand, the need for efficient interactive access to multimedia content is becoming increasingly pronounced. This is a widespread phenomenon, but especially pronounced in earth observation and astronomical applications. Large format images, video and volumes place demands on the compression and communication algorithms to support scalable access to regions of interest at a wide range of resolutions and qualities and on the implementation of these algorithms to support high data throughputs.

This talk will begin with a brief presentation of the JPEG2000 compression algorithm and a demonstration of how it supports these important functionalities.

Professor Taubman is with the School of Electrical Engineering and Telecommunications, at the University of New South Wales, where he serves as Director of Research and heads the Signal Processing Research Group. Before joining UNSW at the end of 1998, he spent 4 years at Hewlett-Packard’s research laboratories in Palo Alto, California.
