Dr. Jordan Isailovic, scientist, JRI Technology and California State University Long Beach, is author of Videodisc and Optical Memory Technologies and Videodisc Systems: Theory and Applications.
has authored numerous technical articles and holds several patents on digital information storage techniques -- including Jordan code , channel code named after him -- and video signal processing.
presented the world's first public engineering course on videodisc technology (January 1982) and taught the world's first graduate courses on videodisc and optical memories (CD, CD-ROM, etc.).
research projects include the following areas: three-dimensional optical memories, optical recording, machine vision, image processing, artificial neural networks, etc. For the lectures, he
wrote four manuscripts : Optical Compact Systems (including CDs and CD-ROMs) , Advanced Digital Systems Design, Guide to Frame Grabber Design, and Multimedia PC Architecture and Design.
current research primarily focuses on video compression - a subject closely related to his
Ph.D. thesis in which, among other things, he
established the theoretical limits for TV signal compression based on 3D predictive coding.
As a consultant, he
has evaluated a great number of MPEG-2 encoders and decoders.
For Advanced Interactive Inc. he
designed the Non-Peg Interactive TV set-top Box.
represented Packard Bell-NEC in the DVD Copy Protection Technical Working Group
(CPTWG), represented Lucas Film and Technicolor in MPEG
, and is still active on the MPEG committee and CPTWG
co-chaired MPEG Digital Cinema AHG and still co-chairs SMPTE working group on DVD Authoring.
Currently, Dr. Isailovic
is consulting in the fields of video compression and digital cinema: evaluating/testing compression techniques, proposing system designs, participating in Standard comities on digital cinema and DVD
Also, he serves as an expert witness in patent litigation: he assesses and evaluates patents and patent portfolio.
