We all like our mobile streaming video the way we like our smoothies, right? SMOOTH! Consistent! Perhaps with cherries.
Researchers at the University of Texas are working on a project to make video, photos and other visual data transmitted via our growing network of 3G and 4G wireless bandwidth pipes get stored and transmitted more efficiently. And they’ll have $900,000 to get moving on that assignment.
The Cockrell School of Engineering at UT has been awarded that sum for its Electrical and Computer Engineering Department so that five professors can study the issue. UT professors Robert W. Heath Jr., Alan Bovik, Gustavo de Veciana, Jeffrey G. Andrews and Constantine Caramanis are on the project; the money comes from Intel Corp. and Cisco Systems Inc.
