IDW '21


Special Event

Future Trends in Image Information and Media Technology

As a collaborative special event with ITE (Institute of Image Information and Television Engineers), the future trends in image information media technology related to display technology, will be held. It will give you some hints for considering the future of display technology.

  1. Toward Next Decade of Image Sensing Technology
    Junichi Akita (Kanazawa Univ.)

    Image sensing technology, especially image sensors, are integration of the wide variety of technology from physics, electronic circuit, optics, systems, and software. In recent years, the relations of these technology areas are getting closer, and exploring the novel field of applications and basic principles. In this talk, the topics on image sensing technology for next decade are introduced and discussed.

  2. The Past, Present and Future of Broadcasting Technologies
    Hidekazu Murata (Kyoto Univ.)

    In the last decade, analog television broadcasting has ended and the new 4K8K satellite broadcasting has started. The Technical Group on Broadcasting and Communication Technologies (BCT) has been actively engaged in research and development to support this major transformation. Our research and development includes wireless and optical transmission technologies, the world's first 8K transmission experiment in the UHF band, and the hybridcast services. In this talk, the future prospects of the following areas will be addressed: next-generation terrestrial digital broadcasting, visible light communication, XR technology, and the utilization of wireless technology after 5G.

  3. Grand Challenges of Media Engineering over Next Decade
    Shuhei Tarashima (NTT Communications), Daisuke Ishii (Fujitsu)

    Media engineering covers diverse and fast-growing topics from basic theories of image/video processing to best practices of real-world applications. In this talk we discuss five major technological challenges of media engineering in the next 10 years including (1) large-scale media understanding, (2) media generation and forensics, (3) autonomous evolution of AI, (4) diversity of correctness, and (5) mutual understanding between technology and society. We also discuss future relationships between media engineering and display technology.
