Background on Perception and Graphics

Computers are becoming faster, smaller and more interconnected creating a shift in their primary function from computation to communication. Digital cameras and camcorders are making high-quality image acquisition ubiquitous. Advances in display technology allow a range of deployments, from high-definition wall displays to miniature embedded screens. At the same time, progress in networking and storage technologies allow large quantities of image and video data to be provided whenever desired. These trends are exemplified by phenomena such as cellular phones with cameras, PDAs with video capability, information displays in automobiles, networked home media appliances, and computer screens in elevators and refrigerators. As communication devices and viewing situations become more plentiful, we need imagery that facilitates visual communication across a wide range of display devices.
