Due to the progress in VLSI technology, integrated circuit chips are now available that allow video/image signal processing to be performed with a single VLSI chip or small sets of VLSI chips. Recent standardization on bandwidth compression schemes for still images (JPEG) and motion pictures (H.261, R723, MPEG) also encourage the development of VLSI video/image processors for cost-effective solutions. Furthermore, recent trends suggest that the standardization on HDTB bandwidth compression for broadcasting and storage purposes is just around the corner.
In terms of device technology, however, the progress achieved in increasing speed is not as high as that achieved by integration. The development of high speed systems is due to architectural effort, rather than device technology. This is why high speed architectures, such as those for special wired logic realization and for multi-processors are of great interest to VLSI system designers.
VLSI Video/Image Signal Processing is an edited volume of original research comprising invited contributions by leading researchers.

Editorial Reviews

Reports on current efforts in VLSI/image signal processors, including recently developed chips, architectures for multiprocessors, and methodologies used for implementing algorithms with general purpose processors. Among the topics are picture coding, the design of a processing board for a programmable multi-VSP system, and architectural strategies for high-throughput applications. The 14 articles are reprinted from The Journal of VLSI Signal Processing vol. 5, nos. 2-3 (1993). Includes a token index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
