Download E-books Intelligente Videoanalyse: Handbuch für die Praxis (German Edition) PDF

By Torsten Anstädt

Intelligente Videoanalyse bezeichnet Systeme aus Kameras und software program, die selbsttätig bestimmte Objekte identifizieren und deren Bewegungen verfolgen können. Obwohl Videoanalyse längst in immer mehr Feldern wie Gebäudesicherung und Verkaufsförderung eingesetzt wird, gibt es bislang keine beschreibende Zusammenfassung zum gegenwärtigen Stand der Technik, der Probleme und der Anwendungsgebiete in übersichtlicher Form.
Das vorliegende Buch zu diesem vielseitig relevanten Thema deckt nun von Planung über Algorithmen bis Datenschutz alle relevanten Aspekte ab und bietet neben detailliert ausgeführten Anwendungsbeispielen auch ein Anbieterverzeichnis.

Download E-books Digital Color Management: Encoding Solutions PDF

By Edward J. Giorgianni

All winning imaging structures hire a few kind of colour administration for previewing, controlling and adjusting colour in the course of the image-production approach. Today’s more and more advanced platforms pose tough difficulties: they need to help a variety of units and media having disparate colour houses, and so they needs to supply for the interchange of pictures between multiple structures. during this ebook, the authors handle and clear up those difficulties utilizing leading edge equipment of representing colour within the electronic area.

The moment variation of this renowned e-book explains the features and barriers of latest colour administration structures and offers finished sensible recommendations for speaking colour inside and between imaging structures, from the easiest to the main complicated. starting with the basics of colour and human colour conception, the publication progresses to in-depth analyses of the character of colour pictures, electronic colour encoding, colour administration structures and electronic colour interchange. totally revised and up to date, this moment variation of Digital colour Management positive factors new and accelerated insurance including:

  • electronic monitors and digital imaging systems;
  • scene-based and appearance-based colour encoding methods;
  • color administration for electronic cinema;
  • a Unified Paradigm—a finished, built-in color-managed atmosphere for the color-imaging industry;
  • four new chapters, new appendices, and greater than eighty new figures.

This publication is a vital source for engineers, programmers and imaging pros designing and engineering color-imaging platforms and for others easily trying to raise their figuring out of the sphere. Scientists, researchers, complicated undergraduates and graduate scholars enthusiastic about imaging expertise will also locate this e-book of important curiosity and usefulness.

Reviews for the 1st edition:

‘The absence of pointless jargon, the impeccable writing type, the fabric intensity leads basically to at least one end: if you are going to buy one electronic colour e-book this 12 months, purchase this one.’ W. David Schwaderer, camera Magazine

‘It [Digital colour administration] fulfils the necessity between engineers and scientists for a finished figuring out of colour administration, imaging, media, viewing stipulations, visual appeal and communication.’ Arthur S. Diamond, Imaging News

Download E-books Vein Pattern Recognition: A Privacy-Enhancing Biometric PDF

By Chuck Wilson

As probably the most promising biometric applied sciences, vein trend attractiveness (VPR) is instantly taking root world wide and will quickly dominate functions the place humans concentration is vital. one of the purposes for VPR’s growing to be popularity and use: it's extra exact than many different biometric equipment, it deals better resistance to spoofing, it makes a speciality of humans and their privateness, and has few unfavourable cultural connotations.

Vein development attractiveness: A Privacy-Enhancing Biometric provides a finished and sensible examine biometrics quite often and at vein trend popularity particularly. It discusses the emergence of this trustworthy yet underutilized expertise and evaluates its features and merits. the writer, Chuck Wilson, an veteran with greater than 25 years of expertise within the biometric and digital protection fields, examines present and rising VPR expertise besides the myriad purposes of this dynamic know-how. Wilson explains using VPR and gives an goal comparability of the various biometric tools in use today—including fingerprint, eye, face, voice popularity, and dynamic signature verification.

Highlighting present VPR implementations, together with its frequent recognition and use for identification verification within the eastern banking undefined, the textual content offers a whole exam of ways VPR can be utilized to guard delicate info and safe severe amenities. whole with best-practice concepts, the publication offers precious information on choosing the right blend of biometric applied sciences for particular functions and on competently imposing VPR as a part of an total defense system.
