Abstract:

THIS PROJECT IS DIRECTED AT PRODUCING A GENERALIZED COMPRESSION MODEL FOR SYSTEMATICALLY TRANSMISSION OF VIDEO INFORMATION AT DECREASING DATA RATES WHILE MAINTAINING MAXIMAL INFORMATION. ALTHOUGH MUCH IS STILL UNKNOWN ABOUT THE HUMAN VISUAL SYSTEM, MAJOR PIECES OF THE PUZZLE HAVE RECENTLY BEEN IDENTIFIED AND CAN BE USED AS A BASIS FOR IMPLEMENTING ADVANCED COMPRESSION MODELS WHICH MAXIMIZE THE AMOUNT OF PERCEIVED INFORMATION AT VARYING DATA TRANSMISSION RATES. THE PROPOSED WORK WILL DEVELOP A GENERALIZED COMPRESSION MODEL BASED ON THIS UNDERSTANDING OF THE HUMAN VISUAL PRECEPTION SYSTEM. PORTIONS OF THE GENERALIZED MODEL WILL BE IMPLEMENTED UNDER THIS EFFORT AND TESTED TO SHOW PROOF OF CONCEPT FOR THIS APPROACH TO VIDEO COMPRESSION. A DETAILED STRATEGY WILL BE DEVELOPED FOR IMPLEMENTATION OF A REAL-TIME PROTOTYPE TO TEST THE FULL MODEL.
