The University of Texas at Tyler College of Engineering and Computer Science will hold a campuswide seminar about digital video image quality and perception coding, Dr. James Nelson, College of Engineering and Computer Science dean, announced.
Part of the college’s 2008-09 Chautauqua Seminar Series, the seminar is 11 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. Friday, March 27 in Ratliff Building North, room 2007. The public is invited to attend.
Dr. K. R. Rao, professor of electrical engineering at UT Arlington, will discuss metrics and standards associated with perceptual coding as well as the latest techniques and applications.
A UT Arlington faculty member since 1966, Rao holds a Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the University of New Mexico. In 1974, he along with two other researchers introduced a technique called the Discrete Cosine Transform which has become popular in digital signal processing.
The seminar is co-sponsored by all the UT Tyler academic colleges.
Chautauqua refers to a time in the late 1800s when people would gather to discuss and elaborate issues in a broad, open manner.
