TOC of book



Today, we consume video content on a variety of display devices. However, the resulting variety of display formats and standards conflicts with the rigid video acquisition process. Quality video content acquisition is expensive, both financially and technically, and is therefore typically produced for a very specific display format. The objective of this thesis is to close the gap between fixedformat content acquisition and variable-format content display using spatially-varying warping and smart acquisition. An algorithmarchitecture co-design approach is used to come up with efficient algorithms and hardware architectures targeted for real-time integrated systems. Low-level video analysis and computer vision, the solving of large sparse linear systems, and spatially-varying warping are the three investigated areas, followed by detailled discussions on resulting real-time circuits and systems.


About the Author:


Pierre Greisen was born in Luxembourg in 1982. He received the M.Sc. degree in information technology and electrical engineering from ETH Zurich in 2007 and a Master’s degree in general engineering from Ecole Centrale Paris in 2007. In 2008, he worked as design engineer at Celestrius, an ETH-spinoff in the field of MIMO wireless communication. Since 2009, he has been working as research assistant at the Integrated Systems Laboratory (IIS) and at Disney Research Zurich. His research interests include digital signal processing, video processing, computer vision, communication technology, and the design of VLSI circuits and systems.
