  • UHDTV-2 Mezzanine Compression Codec For Miniaturized and Simplified UHD Production System

    Publication Year: 2018, Page(s):32 - 38
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1110 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This paper highlights our developments in hardware compression for production applications. The underlying compression scheme shows a minimal quality degradation through multiple encode/decode cycles, making it suitable for production systems. The Tiny Codec (TICO) codec takes an uncompressed UHDTV-2 bitstream of 48 Gbits/s (59.94 Hz, 10 bits, 4:2:2) and compresses it to fit into a single 12G-Seri... View full abstract»

    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1101 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    More and higher quality ultrahigh-definition (UHD) content is arriving in the production environment, requiring additional bandwidth for data transmission and exchange. In parallel, a more flexible infrastructure based on the well-known Internet Protocol (IP) stack is very desirable. Adding mezzanine compression in the production workflow can reduce the necessary data transmission capacities or ev... View full abstract»

  • Noniterative Content-Adaptive Distributed Encoding Through ML Techniques

    Publication Year: 2018, Page(s):50 - 55
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (465 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Distributed encoding is desirable for content preparation cloud workflows to reduce turnaround times. Content-adaptive bit allocation strategies have been proposed to achieve efficiencies in storage and delivery. Many of these methods tend to be iterative in nature and consume significant additional compute resources. There is a need to limit this increase in computational complexity. In this pape...

    In recent years, there has been a rise in diversity initiatives throughout the entertainment and science, technology, engineering, and mathematics industries in response to mounting criticism. While college programs have been found to represent the general population well in terms of diversity, the diversity drops off sharply after graduation, and our industry becomes largely homogenous in top-tie...

  • Is Seeing Still Believing: Factors That Allow Humans and Machines to Discriminate Between Real and Generated Images

    The growing photorealistic capabilities of 3D animation and computer-generated imagery (CGI) poses potential issues for broadcasters, regulators, governments, and viewers. What happens if a news story is broadcast, or available on a website, that is CGI or a combination of CGI and camera-acquired images? There are already instances of video where there is polarized debate as to the degree of CGI p... View full abstract»

    This paper describes a drop-in replacement for the Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG) 2000 (J2K) block coder that offers exceptionally high throughput, with a small reduction in coding efficiency, while retaining all features of J2K except for quality scalability. Throughputs on the order of 10 times or more are achievable relative to J2K. We coin the term FAST block coding with optimized tru... View full abstract»

  • Core Color Rendering Algorithms for High Dynamic Range Display

    As is well known, colors as they exist in the real world must be adjusted so as to look correct and pleasing when displayed on a TV or a cinema screen. In color science, the process of converting these “scene-referred” colors to “display-referred” colors is termed “rendering.” The Academy Color Encoding System (ACES) is a good example of a set of open-source picture rendering algorithms.
