Visually lossless compression for display streaming is a reality in commercial products. Compressing display streams is a practical way to deliver a high-end product to users while gaining system performance benefits including low bill-of-materials cost and low power consumption without sacrificing picture quality. This webinar outlines important tradeoffs to integrators.
Jeffrey Small is a Senior Engineer at Synaptics, specializing in system architecture. He is the current chair of the MIPI Alliance’s Display Working Group. Jeff has been involved with ASIC/system design since 1979, working at Eastman Kodak for 21 years, then at National Semiconductor and now at Synaptics. His Kodak work includes Photo-CD player hardware, thermal dye diffusion printers, several early digital cameras several ASICs used in Kodak’s first digital color copier and real-time JPEG-2000 decompression hardware for Digital Cinema. His work at both National Semiconductor and Synaptics includes numerous display driver and touch controller ASICs, which have been used by every top smart phone manufacturer. He is especially interested in image compression, image sensors, display driver ICs (DDICs) and combined touch/display driver (TDDI) ICs.
Jeff holds numerous US and foreign patents, and earned BSEE, BSME and MSEE degrees from Drexel University and a PhD EE degree from the University of Rochester.
Dale Stolitzka is the Principal Engineer at the Samsung Display America Lab in San Jose, CA, who leads interface standardization. He chairs the VESA Display Stream Compression Task Group, was the former chair of the MIPI Alliance Display Working Group from 2008 to 2011 and is active at other industry standards-setting organizations including ISO/IEC JTC1's JPEG and MPEG working groups. Mr. Stolitzka's experience spans coding systems, consumer electronics displays and advanced transport mechanisms, such as VESA DisplayPort, MIPI Display Serial Interface and JPEG 2000 over MPEG-2 Systems.
Before joining Samsung, he developed computer and consumer electronics systems and mixed-signal system designs at Analog Devices, National Semiconductor, Maxtor and Raytheon. Mr. Stolitzka holds a B.S. degree in Applied Physics and M.Eng. degree in Materials Science and Engineering, both from Cornell University.
