Abstract
THIS IS A PROPOSAL FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A COLOR VIDEO REAL-TIME DATA COMPRESSION SYSTEM. THE PROPOSED SYSTEM WILL CONTAIN A TRANSMITTER AND A RECEIVER. THE TRANSMITTER WILL ACCEPT AN NTSC STANDARD COLOR VIDEO SIGNAL, DIGITIZE IT, COMPRESS IT IN REAL-TIME, AND ENCODE IT FOR TRANSMISSION AT USER-SELECTABLE RATES RANGING FROM 10MB/S TO 50 MB/S. THE RECEIVER WILL DECODE AND DECOMPRESS THE DIGITAL BIT STREAM AND RECONSTRUCT THE DIGITIZED VIDEO SIGNAL FOR DISPLAY. THE PROPOSED PHASE I STUDY WILL RESULT IN A RECOMMENDED COMPRESSION ALGORITHM THAT HAS BEEN OPTIMIZED FOR I) RATE VERSUS SUBJECTIVE VISUAL QUALITY, II) TELEMETRY CHANNEL ERROR EFFECTS, AND III) OTHER CONSTRAINTS RELATED TO REAL TIME OPERATION, SIZE, POWER, MECHANICAL AND ELECTRICAL INTERFACE REQUIREMENTS. PHASE I RESULTS WILL BE ACCOMPANIED BY A SYSTEM-LEVEL HARDWARE ARCHITECTURE AND COMPUTER SIMULATION RESULTS. PHASE II WILL RESULT IN THE FABRICATION OF A PROTOTYPE SYSTEM FOR REAL-TIME DEMONSTRATION.
