  Investigative Projects in Video Coding, Secure Communication and
Multicarrier Transmission
 
    Description  
 

The project envisages research and development in some issues pertaining to the following areas of great importance in modern digital communication:

  • Scalable and Multi-view Video Coding,
  • Secure communication and Watermarking,
  • Multicarrier/ Multitone transmission.

When delivering audio/video content to an area where different networks have different transmission/ reception capability, scalability of source encoding/ decoding is an important issue. It should inherently be possible to encode and decode in a layered manner. This would also exploit the multicarrier transmission mechanism in a natural way - since base layer and enhancement layer information can be transmitted on different carriers. We believe that this will, in particular, be relevant to communication to rural areas in the future, if one desires to deal with systems/ networks with widely varying capability.

 
     
  Application  
 
  • Multicarrier/ multitone transmission (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing) is likely to be an
    integral part of future communication systems.

Timeline
