Download Video Compression Systems: From first principles to by A. Bock PDF

By A. Bock

-Traces heritage of video compression platforms from low bit expense compression to ultra-modern prime quality HDTV compression

-Accessible to a large viewers - advanced tactics are defined utilizing figures and diagrams with descriptions of the algorithms.

This ebook supplies an summary on many sensible points of video compression structures utilized in broadcast television, IPTV, telecommunication and plenty of different video purposes. even though the booklet concentrates on MPEG real-time video compression platforms, many facets are both appropriate to off-line and/or non-MPEG video compression purposes.

After a quick advent to electronic video and video compression ideas, the ebook provides an in depth description of all presently used MPEG video compression algorithms. except the compression algorithms themselves the e-book additionally covers pre and put up processing capabilities that are frequently missed in compression books, but they're crucial components of modern state of the art compression structures. moreover, the ebook covers a variety of vital compression subject matters, equivalent to statistical multiplexing, bit fee altering, splicing and compression concatenation. It does that not only by means of a radical description of the tactics concerned but in addition via posing direct useful questions and supplying instance solutions, relating the correct chapters. It spans the total diversity from low bit expense compression for cellular functions to top of the range HDTV contribution and distribution platforms emphasising the variations in configurations for such varied purposes.

the most a part of the e-book is deliberately written with no mathematical equations to make it extra readable and available to a much broader viewers. in its place, complex tactics, corresponding to movement estimation within the frequency area, are defined utilizing figures and diagrams with exact descriptions of the algorithms. in spite of the fact that, mathematically minded engineers can nonetheless locate correct mathematical causes within the appendix.

Download Seehäfen: Planung und Entwurf by Birgitt Brinkmann PDF

By Birgitt Brinkmann

?ber die Planung und den Entwurf von Seeh?fen ist aus der Perspektive der damit befassten Ingenieure seit ?ber forty Jahren kein Buch in deutscher Sprache erschienen. In diesem Zeitraum hat das st?ndige Anwachsen der Umschlagmengen zu immer gr??eren Schiffen und deren Spezialisierung gef?hrt. Diese Entwicklung hat Einfluss auf die Standorte der H?fen, Hafenzufahrten, Abmessungen und die Gestaltung der wasserseitigen Hafenfl?chen (Hafenbecken, Liegepl?tze), Umschlagverfahren und -anlagen, Lagerfl?chen, Kaianlagen und Pierkonstruktionen sowie Festmachereinrichtungen und beeinflusst daher die Planungsgrundlagen erheblich. Das Buch wendet sich an die im Hafenbau t?tigen Ingenieure und an Studierende der Fachrichtung Wasserbau. Es gibt den aktuellen Stand der Hafengestaltung f?r die unterschiedlichen G?terarten (?l und LNG/LPG, Kohle und Eisenerz, Getreide und Futtermittel, box, Ro/Ro und konventionelles St?ckgut) wieder.

Download Temporally Distributed Symptoms in Technical Diagnosis by Klaus Nökel PDF

By Klaus Nökel

Complex machines can fail in advanced methods. frequently the character of the fault could be made up our minds simply in the course of the interpretation of computing device habit over the years. This ebook provides a singular method of the illustration and popularity of temporally disbursed signs. present diagnostic specialist structures frequently function less than a suite of simplifying assumptions that restrict their applicability. a typical assumption is that the equipment to be clinically determined has a static habit, with the relation among inputs and outputs consistent through the years. In so much reasonable software domain names this assumption is violated and either the conventional, meant functionality of the machine and the capability malfunctions are complicated behaviors through the years. This publication addresses the matter of systematically treating information regarding fault signs which are opened up over sessions of time. those indicators are characterised by means of a particular order of occasions, and within the basic case a unmarried picture of the machine kingdom doesn't suffice to acknowledge the indications. in its place one has to plot a dimension series that comprises a number of observations at multiple time element. beginning with a class of assorted kinds of dynamic defective habit, the writer identifies temporally disbursed platforms (TDSs) and designs a illustration language that permits TDSs to be laid out in a declarative demeanour. The definition of a profitable fit of a size series opposed to a TDS specification is operationalized as an set of rules which plans such an commentary series in accordance with the TDS specification. the writer demonstrates that his novel resolution is a time-honored, paradigm-independent development block for diagnostic professional structures through embedding it into the frameworks of either an associative and a model-based diagnostic procedure. The booklet can be beneficial either for researchers engaged on purposes of temporal reasoning and potential clients of technical professional systems.
