  • IEEE 3333.1.2™-2017, Standard for the Perceptual Quality Assessment of Three-Dimensional (3D) and Ultra-High-Definition (UHD) Contents

    This standard establishes methods for quality assessment of 3D and UHD contents based on physiological mechanisms such as perceptual quality and visual attention. This standard identifies and quantifies the following: causes and visual attention of perceptual quality degradation for 3D and UHD image and video contents: compression distortion, such as multi-view image and video compression, interpolation distortion by intermediate view rendering, such as 3D and UHD warping, view synthesis, structural distortion,such as bit errors on wireless/wired transmission errors, visual attention according to the quality degradation.

  • IEEE 802.15.4s™-2018, Standard for Low-Rate Wireless Networks Amendment 6: Enabling Spectrum Resource Measurement Capability

    This standard defines the physical layer (PHY) and medium access control (MAC) sublayer specifications for low-data-rate wireless connectivity with fixed, portable, and moving devices with no battery or very limited battery consumption requirements.

New Products and Solutions
  • IEEE Next Generation Service Overlay Networks - IEEE 1903™ Series (Bundle)

    This Next Generation Service Overlay Network (NGSON) series of standards describes a framework of Internet Protocol (IP)-based service overlay networks and specifies context-aware [e.g., such as required quality of service (QoS) level; type of service such as real time versus data; nature of data stream such as I-frame versus B-frame; and type of terminal such as TV monitor versus personal digital assistant], dynamically adaptive, and self-organizing, including advanced routing and forwarding schemes, that are independent of underlying networks. This bundle includes: IEEE 1903™-2011, IEEE 1903.1™-2017, IEEE 1903.2™-2017 and IEEE 1903.3™-2017.
