Description

Any device or system with imaging functionality requires a digital video processing solution as part of its embedded system design. Engineers need a practical guide to technology basics and design fundamentals that enables them to deliver the video component of complex projects.

This book introduces core video processing concepts and standards, and delivers practical how-to guidance for engineers embarking on digital video processing designs using FPGAs. It covers the basic topics of video processing in a pictorial, intuitive manner with minimal use of mathematics. Key outcomes and benefits of this book for users include: understanding the concepts and challenges of modern video systems; architect video systems at a system level; reference design examples to implement your own high definition video processing chain; understand implementation trade-offs in video system designs.

Review Text

"Parker and Dhanani.explain basic concepts and applications of video technology so engineers can either build their own video systems or integrate third-party video technology into their products. Their treatment might also be useful to people who need to know the basics but not the details for technical marketing and sales, and to executives in the many business that require video technology." --Reference and Research Book News, December 2012
