Visual Communications:
Fax, Multimedia, Digital Video, HDTV

October 16-18, 1996

offered by the Center for Image Processing Research at

Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
Troy, New York

Overview: Visual Communications is a key element in modern information
systems. Spurred on by developments in VSLI technology and the
telecommunications revolution, digital documents, images, and video are
becomming commonplace in our everyday lives. Fax machines, multimedia
CD-ROMs, video conferencing, WWW, digital satellite TV, digital video,
interactive TV, and HDTV are common examples. This seminar concentrates on
the data compression algorithms and transmission techniques that are making
this revolution possible.

Continuing Education in Engineering
Announces A New Short Courses on Video Compression

(October 13-14, 1994)

Video Compression and Visual Communication is a rapidly evolving
multidisciplinary field focussing on the development of
technologies and standards for efficient storage and transmission
of video signals. It covers areas of video compression
algorithms, VLSI technology, standards, and high-speed digital
networks.  It is a critical enabling technology for the emerging
information superhighway for offering various video services.  In
this course, we will fully treat video compression algorithms and
standards, and discuss the issues related to the transport of
video over various networks.

Lecturers: Ming-Ting Sun, Ph.D, is director of Video Signal
Processing Research, Bellcore.  Dr. Sun has published numerous
technical papers, holds four patents, developed IEEE Std 1180-
1990, was awarded the Best Paper Award for IEEE Transactions
Video Technology in 1993 (with Tzou), and an award for excellence
in standards development from the IEEE Standards Board in 1991.
He is currently the express letter editor, IEEE Transaction on
Circuits and Systems for Video Technology (CSVT), and associate
editor, IEEE Transactions of CSVT.  He was chairman and now
serves as secretary of the IEEE CAS Technical committee on Visual
Signal Processing and Communications.  

Kou-Hu Tzou, Ph.D., is manager of the Image Processing
Department, COMSAT Laboratories.    Dr Tzou won the Best Paper
Award for IEEE Transactions Video Technology in 1993 (with Sun).
He holds 6 patents, has served as an associate editor for IEEE
Transactions on Circuits and Systems, is currently associate
editor for IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems for Video
Technology, and served as a guest editor for Optical Engineering
Journal special issues on Visual Communications and Image
Processing in 1989, 91, and 93.  He is the committee chair of the
Visual Signal Processing and Communication Technical committee,
IEEE Circuits and Systems Society.
