Multimedia Processing and Computer Vision

Research Areas

The Multimedia Processing and Computer Vision laboratory is widely known as one of the best of its kind in the UK and has also earned international recognition. Its work has involved collaboration with industrial partners and academics from UK and abroad. Its ongoing research covers a broad spectrum of computational techniques associated with visual and audio media, from video compression to medical image processing.

A particular feature of our work over in past 25 years has been the use of multiresolution signal representations. These include wavelets and related transforms for compression and segmentation and 'coarse-fine' methods for estimation of disparity fields in such areas as stereopsis and visual motion.

We have collaborated with many other research groups within the University of Warwick, including the Mathematics Institute and the Departments of Statistics and Psychology, University Hospitals of Coventry and Warwickshire and at other Institutions, including Yale, Harvard, Zurich and Bristol Universities, the Institute of Psychiatry and organisations such as Oxford GlycoSciences Ltd, Sony Broadcast and Professional (Europe), DERA Malvern (now QinetiQ) and the Forensic Science Service. Recently we have been involved in several projects with Warwick Medical School, Pattern Analytics Ltd, and Jaguar Land Rover research.
