Videos take up of lot of memory space, about 17MB per second from a camcorder video. When shared across a network with a system that needs to stream the tape in real time, the video must be compressed by the sender and restored by the receiver. The talk will be about the technology, and the engineering and basic math of streaming video. In particular, the speaker will introduce the basics of JPEG-2000 equivalent video
