    The performance of the CEBUS, a local area network proposed by the Electronics Industries Association for a smart house is analyzed under varying network loads and traffic patterns. The performances of reduced complexity versions of the CEBUS scheme are compared with that of the standard CEBUS. A message's delay in a CEBUS network, at a given network bandwidth, is dependent not only on its priorit... View full abstract»

    It is pointed out that the integration of virtual reality techniques with multimedia teleconferencing leads to the development of tele-virtual conferencing systems, which synthesize panoramic, life-like three-dimensional video images and stereophonic audio. The authors investigate the architectural requirements of such systems and propose a high-level design of an intelligent multimedia interface ... View full abstract»

    A digitally controlled video processor has been developed to a target specification including static and dynamic hue accuracy defined by a target area in the chromaticity diagram. The author shows the conversion between hue errors and RGB drive tolerances and relates these to quantization levels. It is demonstrated that conventional circuit techniques introduce important errors in such a processor... View full abstract»

    An integer cosine transform denoted ICT (10,9,6,2,9,3) has been shown to be a promising alternative discrete cosine transform (DCT) for its implementation simplicity, close performance, and compatibility to the DCT. The authors describe a hardware realization of the 2D-ICT (10,9,6,2,9,3) using two custom designed chips, referred to as the ICT chip and a data sequencer chip. Both chips were impleme...
