The Technology

Prof David Taubman, A leader in the field of image and video compression techniques, has developed a suite of patented methodologies and software in this field. The suite provides various technologies to improve video and image compression and manipulation to suit specific market needs.

 

This technology represents a new method for the scalable compression of spatial data sets and images. Particularly applicable to 3D and geographical depth mapping data this technique can provide improved compression efficiency for a required fidelity. The method prioritises geometric information and estimates parameters based on the pre-determined requirements to produce the most efficient compression for a fixed output.

Research is ongoing and currently software to demonstrate the technique is being developed.

 

Key Benefits

  • Efficient Compression of spatial data with images
  • Scalable to allow for variation in the resolution or quality for increased performance
  • Describes points of discontinuity in a spatial data set
  • Improved compression over current techniques

Applications

  • Geographical information/mapping/imaging
  • Compression of 3d scenes
  • Multi-view video
  • Free viewpoint video
  • spatial mapping

 

The Opportunity

NewSouth Innovations is currently looking for partners to licence the technologies developed by Prof David Taubman, the inventor of the successful Kakadu Software JPEG2000 compression SDK. Due to the similarities across the portfolio these technologies are available as a group or individually for use in potential licensee’s commercial products.
