By Byrav Ramamurthy

Lo, soul! seest thou no longer God's goal from the 1st? The earth to be spann'd, attached through net-work From Passage to India! Walt Whitman, "Leaves of Grass", 1900. the net is becoming at a major fee this day. New companies, resembling telephony and multimedia, are being extra to the natural data-delivery framework of the day before today. Such excessive calls for on ability may lead to a "bandwidth-crunch" on the middle wide-area community leading to degra­ dation of provider caliber. thankfully, technological suggestions have emerged that may offer reduction to the end-user to beat the In­ ternet's famous hold up and bandwidth boundaries. on the actual layer, an enormous overhaul of current networks has been envisaged from digital media (such as twisted-pair and cable) to optical fibers - within the huge sector, within the metropolitan sector, or even within the neighborhood region set­ tings. with the intention to make the most the sizeable bandwidth capability of the optical fiber, attention-grabbing multiplexing innovations were built through the years. Wavelength department multiplexing (WDM) is this kind of promising tech­ nique during which a number of channels are operated alongside a unmarried fiber si­ multaneously, every one on a unique wavelength. those channels might be independently modulated to deal with distinct bit charges and information codecs, if that is so wanted. therefore, WDM carves up the massive bandwidth of an optical fiber into channels whose bandwidths (1-10 Gbps) are compati­ ble with top digital processing speed.

Download Optical Channels: Fibers, Clouds, Water, and the Atmosphere by Sherman Karp, Robert M. Gagliardi, Steven E. Moran, Lawrence PDF

By Sherman Karp, Robert M. Gagliardi, Steven E. Moran, Lawrence B. Stotts

When we have been first approached through Dr. fortunate to put in writing this publication we have been very captivated with the possibility, seeing that we had pondered an identical venture for rather a while. the trouble lay in how top to digest the great volume of information on optical propagation, lessen it to a ebook of plausible dimension, and concurrently shape the transition from the physics of propagation to the engineering of optical channels. this is often the rationale of Optical Channels. In attaining our target it was once essential to condense the fabric on optical propagation and, in so doing, we've got left a great amount to be dealt with through references. we now have attempted to make those judgements in a constant demeanour in order that the publication should be uniform in its therapy of this subject. We establish 4 channels for attention: the free-space channel, which: is attribute of a tranquil surroundings or a space-to-space hyperlink; the turbulent channel, that is attribute of the atmospheric channel; the scatter channel in types, clouds and water; and the fiber optic channel. for every of those channels now we have attempted to minimize the acceptable propagation conception to a degree that may be used for engineering layout. This has been performed via instance, yet the following back judgements needed to be made on which examples to offer. we've not attempted to give any fabric on optical parts and therefore different references on engineering will be essential to complement this book.

Download Real-Time Video Compression: Techniques and Algorithms (The by Raymond Westwater PDF

By Raymond Westwater

Real-Time Video Compression: innovations and Algorithms introduces the XYZ video compression approach, which operates in 3 dimensions, disposing of the overhead of movement estimation. First, video compression criteria, MPEG and H.261/H.263, are defined. They either use uneven compression algorithms, in accordance with movement estimation. Their encoders are even more advanced than decoders. The XYZ strategy makes use of a symmetric set of rules, in response to the third-dimensional Discrete Cosine remodel (3D-DCT). 3D-DCT was once initially recommended for compression approximately two decades in the past; even though, at the moment the computational complexity of the set of rules was once too excessive, it required huge buffer reminiscence, and used to be no longer as powerful as movement estimation. we now have resurrected the 3D-DCT-based video compression set of rules by means of constructing numerous improvements to the unique set of rules. those improvements make the set of rules possible for real-time video compression in functions similar to video-on-demand, interactive multimedia, and videoconferencing. The proven effects, awarded during this publication, recommend that the XYZ video compression method is not just a quick set of rules, but additionally offers more desirable compression ratios and top of the range of the video in comparison to latest ordinary ideas, resembling MPEG and H.261/H.263. The splendor of the XYZ method is in its simplicity, which results in reasonably cheap VLSI implementation of any XYZ codec. Real-Time Video Compression: innovations and Algorithms could be used as a textual content for graduate scholars and researchers operating within the region of real-time video compression. furthermore, the e-book serves as an important reference for pros within the box.
