Once every week while school is in session, EECS invites a distinguished researcher or practitioner in a computer science or electrical and computer engineering-related field to present their ideas and/or work. Talks are generally targeted to electrical engineering and computer science graduate students. This colloquium series is free and open to everyone.

Upcoming Colloquia

Video Compression Standardization and Immersive Media Experiences

Monday, November 18, 2019 - 4:00pm to 4:50pm
Gilfillan Auditorium

Speaker Information

Jill M. Boyce
Intel Fellow and Chief Media Architect


Video compression standards enable applications that we use every day, such as broadcast television, online video streaming, and videoconferencing. A brief tutorial will be presented on the technology used in international video coding standards, including MPEG AVC/H.264, HEVC, and the upcoming VVC. Updates will also be provided on the latest standardization activities to enable immersive media, which enable an immersive experience with 6 degrees of freedom of movement with support for motion parallax.
