While some sides of photographic “culture” remain wholly unchanged – art photography, journalistic and advertising photography, scientific photography, etc. – new facets emerge: leisure or travel photography, everyday life photography, anecdotal, observational or unusual photography, and microcosm, or micro-community, photography with its culmination in the narcissistic selfie. These new forms combine an often simplified manner of photographing and modern means of instantaneous, remote and mass communication. This book does not extend into the sociological study of photography, instead it explains how the digital camera works by examining in detail each of the components that constitutes it to provide the reader with a preliminary guide into the inner workings of this device.

Real-Time Digital Signal Processing introducesfundamental digital signal processing (DSP) principles and will beupdated to include the latest DSP applications, introduce newsoftware development tools and adjust the software design processto reflect the latest advances in the field. In the 3rdedition of the book, the key aspect of hands-on experiments will beenhanced to make the DSP principles more interesting and directlyinteract with the real-world applications. All of the programs willbe carefully updated using the most recent version of softwaredevelopment tools and the new TMS320VC5505 eZdsp USB Stick forreal-time experiments. Due to its lower cost and portability, thenew software and hardware tools are now widely used in universitylabs and in commercial industrial companies to replace the olderand more expensive generation. The new edition will have a renewedfocus on real-time applications and will offer step-by-stephands-on experiments for a complete design cycle starting fromfloating-point C language program to fixed-point C implementation,code optimization using INTRINSICS, and mixed C-and-assemblyprogramming on fixed-point DSP processors. This new methodologyenables readers to concentrate on learning DSP fundamentals andinnovative applications by relaxing the intensive programmingefforts, namely, the traditional DSP assembly coding efforts. Thebook is organized into two parts; Part One introduces thedigital signal processing principles and theories, and PartTwo focuses on practical applications. The topics for theapplications are the extensions of the theories in Part One with anemphasis placed on the hands-on experiments, systematic design andimplementation approaches. The applications provided in the bookare carefully chosen to reflect current advances of DSP that are ofmost relevance for the intended readership.Combines both the DSP principles and real-time implementationsand applications using the new eZdsp USB Stick, which is very lowcost, portable and widely employed at many DSP labs is now used inthe new editionPlaces renewed emphasis on C-code experiments and reduces theexercises using assembly coding; effective use of C programming,fixed-point C code and INTRINSICS will become the main focus of thenew edition.Updates to application areas to reflect latest advances such asspeech coding techniques used for next generation networks (NGN),audio coding with surrounding sound, wideband speech codec (ITUG.722.2 Standard), fingerprint for image processing, and biomedicalsignal processing examples.Contains new addition of several projects that can be used assemester projects; as well as new many new real-time experimentsusing TI’s binary libraries – the experiments areprepared with flexible interface and modular for readers to adaptand modify to create other useful applications from the providedbasic programs.Consists of more MATLAB experiments, such as filter design,algorithm evaluation, proto-typing for C-code architecture, andsimulations to aid readers to learn DSP fundamentals.
Includes supplementary material of program and data files forexamples, applications, and experiments hosted on a companionwebsite.
A valuable resource for Postgraduate students enrolled on DSPcourses focused on DSP implementation & applications as well asSenior undergraduates studying DSP; engineers and programmers whoneed to learn and use DSP principles and development tools fortheir projects.
The second edition takes into account a wide range of technical and legislative changes, and has been revised in line with the latest EU and international standards. Issues raised by increasing levels of microwave pollution from mobile phones and other sources are also confronted.
New material covers:International Radiological Protection Commission (IRPC): new recommendations published in 1998European Broadcasting Union (EBU)'s new guideEU Physical Agents Directive and Machines Directive (both of which cover radio transmitters)UK National Radiological Protection Board (UKNRPB) new guidance on safety levelsCovers radiation hazards and risks resulting from electromagnetic interferenceLeading professional guide to RF and microwave safety issuesRevised in line with the latest the EU and international standards
Readers of this book should have an electrical engineering background but have not yet dealt with RFID. To this end, Dr. Dobkin is very careful to illustrate all concepts and detail his explanations meticulously. In this way he brings the reader along organically showing him/her what to expect, develop, and use while implementing an RFID system.This technology is happening NOW at major chain stores such as Wal-Mart and TargetRFID revenues are estimated to soar to about $7 billion by 2008

The book provides a CD-ROM containing codes in PASCAL and C for the computer procedures printed in the book. It also furnishes a complete program devoted to the statistical analysis of time series, which will be attractive to a wide range of academics working in diverse mathematical disciplines.
Data compression techniques and technology are ever-evolving with new applications in image, speech, text, audio and video. This new edition includes all the latest developments in the field.
Khalid Sayood provides an extensive introduction to the theory underlying today’s compression techniques, with detailed instruction for their applications using several examples to explain the concepts. Encompassing the entire field of data compression, the book includes lossless and lossy compression, Huffman coding, arithmetic coding, dictionary techniques, context based compression, and scalar and vector quantization.
The book provides a comprehensive working knowledge of data compression, giving the reader the tools to develop a complete and concise compression package.Explains established and emerging standards in- depth, including JPEG 2000, JPEG-LS, MPEG-2, H.264, JBIG 2, ADPCM, LPC, CELP, MELP, iLBC and the new HEVC standardIncludes more coverage of lattices in vector quantizationContains improved and expanded end-of-chapter problemsSource code is provided via a companion website that gives readers the opportunity to build their own algorithms and choose and implement techniques in their own applications
