Video Design House (VDH)
presents a series of MPEG, DTV, DVD and Digital Cinema courses for
this fast growing technology area. No matter you are new for the
technology or you would like to sharpen your professional skill and
update to the last minute standard changes. Those courses are the
answers for you!
Dr. Jordan Isailovic,
scientist, JRI Technology and California State University Long
Beach, is author of Videodisc and Optical Memory Technologies
and Videodisc Systems: Theory and Applications. He has
authored numerous technical articles and holds several patents on
digital information storage techniques -- including
channel code named after him -- and video signal processing. He
presented the world¡¯s first public engineering course on videodisc
technology (January 1982) and taught the world's first graduate
courses on videodisc and optical memories (CD, CD-ROM, etc.).
His research projects include the following areas: three-dimensional
optical memories, optical recording, machine vision, image processing,
artificial neural networks, etc. For the lectures, he wrote four
manuscripts: Optical Compact Systems (including CDs and CD-ROMs)
, Advanced Digital Systems Design, Guide to Frame Grabber Design,
and Multimedia PC Architecture and Design.
Isailovic's current research primarily focuses on video compression -
a subject closely related to his Ph.D. thesis in which, among other
things, he established the theoretical limits for TV signal
compression based on 3D predictive coding. As a consultant, he has
evaluated a great number of MPEG-2 encoders and decoders. For Advanced
Interactive Inc. he designed the Non-Peg Interactive TV set-top Box.
He represented Packard Bell-NEC in the DVD Copy Protection Technical
Working Group (CPTWG), represented Lucas Film and Technicolor in MPEG,
and is still active on the MPEG committee and CPTWG. He co-chaired
MPEG Digital Cinema AHG and still co-chairs SMPTE working group on DVD
Currently, Dr. Isailovic is consulting in the fields of video
compression and digital cinema: evaluating/testing compression
techniques, proposing system designs, participating in Standard
comities on digital cinema and DVD, etc.
