Research Interests

Smarter Resource Allocation

Video streams are ubiquitous in our modern world. High quality multimedia already constitutes a major part of today's network traffic and the growing demand for e.g. 4/8K and VR resources indicates a need for improvement in video compression. This project aims to identify what's really important in video data in order to optimize the bit allocation scheme throughout a stream  such that higher compression rates can be achieved without reducing the perceived quality for the end user.
