The VIP Gallery [Supplementary Materials]

T. Goodall and A.C. Bovik

The Video Instructional Package (VIP) gallery offers an excellent overview of topics covered in the EE381V "Digital Video" course taught at the University of Texas at Austin. Topics and preview frames from the video gallery are provided below.

*Note that a fast hard drive (SSD preferred) is required to play the raw *.yuv files at full speed, and that the *.yuv files are ~639GB uncompressed. The *.mp4 versions are ~6GB uncompressed. The optional GUI (link) allows the user to quickly navigate to the desired video content, and provides an option for choosing raw *.yuv or compressed *.mp4 video versions.
