Digital Video Image Quality and Perceptual Coding by H.R. Wu, K.R. Rao

By H.R. Wu, K.R. Rao

The hand is faster than the attention. in lots of instances, so is electronic video. conserving snapshot caliber in bandwidth- and memory-restricted environments is instantly turning into a truth as thriving learn delves ever deeper into perceptual coding options, which discard superfluous facts that people can't technique or notice. Surveying the subject from a Human visible process (HVS)-based procedure, electronic Video photo caliber and Perceptual Coding outlines the foundations, metrics, and criteria linked to perceptual coding, in addition to the most recent thoughts and applications.This ebook is split extensively into 3 components. First, it introduces the basic concept, thoughts, rules, and strategies underlying the sector, reminiscent of the fundamentals of compression, HVS modeling, and coding artifacts linked to present recognized options. the subsequent part makes a speciality of photo caliber evaluate standards; subjective and aim tools and metrics, together with imaginative and prescient version established electronic video impairment metrics; checking out techniques; and overseas criteria concerning photograph caliber. ultimately, functional functions come into concentration, together with electronic picture and video coder designs in keeping with the HVS in addition to post-filtering, recovery, blunders correction, and concealment techniques.The permeation of electronic pictures and video through the international can't be understated. Nor can the significance of holding caliber whereas utilizing minimum cupboard space, and electronic Video picture caliber and Perceptual Coding offers the instruments essential to accomplish this goal.Instructors and teachers wishing to use this paintings as a textbook can obtain a presentation of 786 slides in PDF structure equipped to enhance the textual content. accompany our book(H.R. Wu and K.R. Rao, electronic Video photo caliber and Perceptual Coding, CRC Press (ISBN: 0-8247-2777-0), Nov. 2005)for teachers or teacher to exploit for his or her periods in the event that they use the ebook.

Effective Tcl/Tk Programming: Writing Better Programs with by Mark Harrison

By Mark Harrison

I puchased this e-book simply because i used to be having a bit hassle getting Tk to paintings. It particularly helped my figuring out of the development loop. analyzing this ebook gave me adequate historical past to raised comprehend the Tk sectins of the Welch booklet and issues out a few pitfalls and the way to prevent them. The ebook additionally contains a library of beneficial widgets that may be faily simply transformed. In weeks time i used to be capable of build a GUI for long-term trying out organize and keep an eye on. My major criticism with this e-book is that the index is particularly susceptible plus there is not any accomplished record of attributes so that you nonetheless desire a reference e-book or manpages.
