Video Compression Overview Design How-To 2/8/1998 Post a comment This short article reviews the four families of compression algorithms used in nearly all coders today and dicusses the most common DCT in a little more detail. The major intra-frame and inter-frame approaches are outlined to help the reader understand some of the differences between the many video codecs used in different applications today.
An Overview of Video Compression Algorithms Design How-To 2/3/1998 Post a comment Have you ever wondered what the difference is between JPEG and MPEG. Or MPEG-1 and MPEG-4. Well this article takes you through video CODEC land, with an explanation of all the major compression/decompression approaches used in still image compression, desktop multimedia, broadcast TV, and videoconferencing.
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
