Video: IEEE Educational Videos on Wavelets

A series of IEEE Educational videos on wavelets is now available from
IEEE headquarters, featuring an easy graphical review of the relevant
mathematics behind wavelets, and an exciting array of applications
from speech coding and recognition to image, audio and video
compression and noise filtering. This video series will be accessible
to a wide audience of researchers and students in mathematics, science
and especially in engineering disciplines. Prerequisites are kept to
a minimum: some calculus and linear algebra, and a working familiarity
with concepts in signal processing.

A brief overview of the contents of the video courses follows.

Full Course: FUNDAMENTALS OF WAVELETS AND APPLICATIONS
Release Date: September 1995 (10 hours/7 tapes)
Presented by Pankaj Topiwala, MITRE Corporation; Shubha Kadambe, Atlantic
Aerospace; Peter Niels Heller, Aware Inc.; Tom Hopper, FBI; and Ronald
Coifman, Yale University

Complete program comes in three (3) sections:
PRINCIPLES OF WAVELET THEORY
WAVELET APPLICATIONS IN SPEECH & AUDIO
WAVELET APPLICATIONS IN IMAGE PROCESSING

As applications of wavelet theory grow rapidly, high-tech industries
are experiencing a virtual flood of engineers entering this field with
diverse backgrounds and skills. As a result, thousands of engineers
working in everything from mathematics and physics to applied areas in
digital signal processing, image compression, speech recognition, and
pattern recognition need to understand this exciting new subject. No
other publication can offer the comprehensive and timely coverage
found in this IEEE video as presented by today's foremost experts.

FUNDAMENTALS OF WAVELETS AND APPLICATIONS covers all major aspects of
wavelet theory including:
- time-frequency localization - multi-resolution analysis
- digital filter banks - subband coding

Plus many exciting applications are presented in detail:
- image compression - speech coding and recognition
- audio and video coding - automatic target recognition

The FBI's Wavelet Scalar Quantization compression of fingerprint images is
given special coverage by the FBI's expert, Tom Hopper.

Learning is supported by a complete booklet of hardcopy visuals, notes, and
reference materials. This program is appropriate for use by individuals or
for group-study.
