Multimedia Systems Group

Professor Vivienne Sze


The Energy-Efficient Multimedia Systems Group aims to develop and implement energy-efficient and high-performance systems for various multimedia applications such as video coding/processing, imaging and vision. We focus on the joint design of algorithms, architectures, circuits and systems to enable optimal tradeoffs between power, speed and quality of result. Accordingly, our work traverses various levels of abstraction from energy-aware algorithm development for signal processing to efficient architecture design and low-power VLSI circuit implementation.
