They are to join scientists in developing flat screen technology with better images and lower energy consumption
Science is seeking input from "real life". The research group Coding & Visual Communication at DTU Fotonik is looking among businesses for collaborators in a research project.
Two large Danish newspapers and a large trade paper are currently running advertisements form DTU Fotonik asking small and medium sized busineeses to take part in a research project together with the DTU scientists. The project in question is supported by the Danish Strategic Research Council and another collaborator is Bang&Olufsen A/S. The project explores video processing from when MPEG4 signals are received to display on a flat screen television. A significant focus is optimization of the image quality on LED backlit television screens.
DTU Fotonik has developed new algorithms which make it possible to achieve optimal image quality and at the same time reduces powere concumption significantly. Input from "real life" is intended partly to ensure that technology fits the actual need and partly to bring small and medium sized busineeses into play in the scientific world.
