2004

Stylized Rendering for Multiresolution Image Representation
Graphics Talk at the Rainbow Group of the Computer Laboratory, University of Cambridge.

  • Presented a novel image sampling and rendering technique, based on the Voronoi diagram, and described its application to progressive image compression, where it enables a multiresolution image representation to support both compact image encoding and stylized image rendering.
