In this work, we would like to highlight an international collaboration between Korea University, one of the premier universities in South Korea, and Penn State University- Harrisburg, for the development of an advanced video CODEC. It has been recently noticed that video coding based on 3-dimensional (3D) wavelet transforms has the potential of providing a scalable representation of video with variable spatial, temporal, and quality resolution. In this paper, we present a MATLAB-based software for the implementation of an advanced 3D dual-tree discrete wavelet transform video coding (DDWTVC). Compression ratio performance of the implemented CODEC that corresponds to a certain reconstruction quality is measured. Results show that the implemented DDWTVC offers better rate-distortion performance and superior visual quality than the 3D SPIHT, which is another well-known embedded video-coding algorithm with spatial, temporal, and PSNR-scalable bitstreams.

I. Introduction

Technical research enterprise has become increasingly more complex and globally comprehensive. This circumstance requires collaboration among different research teams, often involving other countries. As a result of this observation a Memorandum of Understanding between the School of Electronics and Computer Engineering, Korea University, and the School of Science, Engineering and Technology, Penn State Harrisburg was signed, in July 2005, stating that: “Whenever possible, to collaborate on the common research interests of Electronics, Computer and Telecommunication technologies.

The two institutions agree on the following terms: • To encourage the exchange of research information by various means such as offering seminars for researchers at each other’s institutions whenever possible, • To seek joint research projects within the policies and guidelines of both institutions. • To encourage students to apply for graduate studies at each other’s institutions.”

Based on these principles, there were exchange visits between the School of Science, Engineering and Technology Director, Penn State University Harrisburg and the Head
