Method and Apparatus for High Quality Video Reconstruction

Researchers at the University of California, Santa Barbara have developed a novel method and apparatus to improve the overall quality of a reconstructed video signal at a given transmission rate, or to maintain the current signal quality at reduced transmission rates. The method also employs a prediction scheme to improve video quality by predicting information about future signal data from information given in the currently streaming data. These characteristics help to vastly improve device video streaming performance and video signal quality for devices with varying display resolutions.
