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 Jordan code, 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.

Dr. 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 Authoring.

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.

Dr. Jordan Isailovic has been providing on-site and public courses to many clients including leading technology companies, organizations, and market decision makers like: ADC, Ampex, ATI, AT&T, Boeing, Broadcom, Cadence, C-Cube, Cisco, Cal State Northridge, DirecTV, Diva, Extron, Echostar, GI, Hitachi, HP, Hyundai, IBM, Intel, Kodak, LSI Logic, Lucas Film, THX, Macrovision, Microsoft, Mitsubishi, Motorola, NASA, NEC, ODC, OptiBASE, OptiVision, Packard Bell, Pioneer, Polaroid, Qualcomm, Quantum, Rockwell, Sharp, S3, Samsung, Sony, TDC, Technicolor, Tektronix, Thomson, TI, Toshiba, VLSI, Zapex, Zenith, Zilog and many more...
