Abstract:

A NEW MATHEMATICAL TRANSFORM METHOD FOR THE COMPRESSION OF MOTION VIDEO HAS BEEN FORMULATED BY AVELEX AND A BREADBOARD MODEL FABRICATED TO DEMONSTRATE LOW BIT-RATE MONOCHROME IMAGERY. A METHOD IS PROPOSED FOR OBTAINING COLOR MOTION VIDEO BY A NOVEL MEANS WITH A RATHER SMALL INCREASE IN THE AMOUNT OF DATA REQUIRED TO BE TRANSMITTED. THE BENEFIT OF THIS NEW TECHNOLOGY IS TO PROVIDE STABLE MOTION IMAGERY AT LOW TRANSMISSION BIT RATES IN THE PRESENCE OF CONSIDERABLE SUBJECT MOTION AND IN THE PRESENCE OF UNAVOIDABLE CAMERA/SUBJECT MOTION, A PERFORM ANCE NOT ACHIEVED BY PRIOR TECHNOLOGIES. IMAGERY HAS BEEN DEMONSTRATED WITH TRANSMISSION CHANNEL CAPACITIES FROM 19.2 KBITS/SEC UP TO500 KBITS/SEC. WHEREIN NO RECONSTRUCTED IMAGE BREAKUP-UP OCCURS AT ANY RATE, AND THE DEGRADATION AT LOWER RATES IS ONLY ONE OF TEMPORARY AND GRACEFUL RESOLUTION LOSS IN AREAS OF MOTION FOR A BRIEF TIME WHILETHE MOTION IS OCCURRING. THIS PROPOSAL DEFINES THE WORK REQUIRED TO DEMONSTRATE THIS NEW TECHNOLOGY (PATENT PENDING) AND BRING IT TO A STATE TO BE CONSIDERED IN DEFENSE DEPARTMENT APPLICATIONS REQUIRING LOW BIT-RATE TRANSMISSION.
