The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Signal Processing Society’s publication, IEEE Transactions on Image Processing, is considered the flagship peer-reviewed publication in image processing… and has recently appointed our own Dr. Rahul Vanam, a staff engineer in InterDigital Labs, as Associate Editor for the 2015 – 2018 term.

IEEE Transactions on Image Processing publishes articles focused on signal-processing aspects of image processing, imaging systems, and image scanning, display, and printing through open calls for articles as well as special issues on various topics. Rahul, who specializes in multimedia signal processing as well as video and image compression/processing, joins the editorial board of this recognized journal along with industry representatives from leading companies around the world, like Google, IBM, Intel, Ricoh, Disney, and GE, among others. In addition to this achievement, Rahul serves an area chair for the IEEE International conference on multimedia and expo (ICME) 2015, publicity co-chair for the 2016 Southwest Symposium on Image Analysis and Interpretation (SSIAI), and as a key member of the IEEE MMTC Multimedia Processing for Communications Interest Group (MPCIG).

InterDigital has a dedicated video standards research team that actively contributes to the development of standardized video codecs through two areas: standards-based and prototyping-based innovation. Standards-based innovation focuses on participation and contribution to video standardization organizations, while notable achievements for the prototypes developed by the team include power-aware HEVC streaming, software-based HEVC decoder, fast HEVC encoder, and real-time SHVC decoder.
