Paper Abstract

A new television system based on the Autosophy information theory is now being developed for Internet video applications. Autosophy communication is already widely used on the Internet, with current applications including data compression in V.42bis modems, and the lossless still image compression standards GIF and TIF. Now Autosophy Internet video is being developed and is ready for demonstration. In conventional television, bit rates are determined entirely by screen size, resolution, and scanning rates. The images shown on the screen are irrelevant, such that random noise video requires the same bit rate as any other video content. In the new Autosophy-based television, in contrast, bit rates are determined entirely by the video content, essentially motion and complexity within the images. A very high degree of visually lossless video compression is possible because only moving portions of the video are transmitted. Transmitted codes represent multi-pixel image clusters found in a pre-grown hyperspace library. The system can dynamically reduce resolution of fast-moving objects when necessary to accommodate bandwidth restrictions. Ideally suited to the Internet environment, the new television also features high resistance to delayed or dropped packets, a universal hardware-independent communication format, and optional codebook encryption for secure communications.
