    Muir, Laura J.; Richardson, I. E. G. (Oxford University Press http://dx.doi.org/10.1093/deafed/eni037, 2005)
    MUIR, L.J. and RICHARDSON, I.E.G., 2005. Perceptions of sign language and its application to visual communications for deaf people. Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 10 (4), pp. 390-401
    Video communication systems for deaf people are limited in terms of quality and performance, particularly at low bit rates. Analysis of visual attention mechanisms for sign language may enable optimisation of video coding ...
  • Video telephony for the deaf : analysis and development of an optimised video compression product. 

    Muir, Laura J.; Richardson, I. E. G. (Blackwell http://doi.acm.org/10.1145/641007.641137, 2002-12)
    MUIR, L.J. and RICHARDSON, I.E.G. 2002. Video telephony for the deaf: analysis and development of an optimised video compression product. In: Proceedings of the Tenth ACM International Multimedia Conference. 1-6 December 2002. Juan-Les-Pins, France. pp. 650-652
    The multimedia capability of video telephony and video conferencing systems has many applications and benefits. This paper describes research and development that aims to optimise video compression systems for a specific ...
  • Visual perception of content-prioritised sign language video quality. 

    Muir, Laura J.; Richardson, I. E. G.; Hamilton, K. (IET, 2005-01)
    MUIR, L. J., RICHARDSON, I. E. G. and HAMILTON, K., 2005. Visual perception of content-prioritised sign language video quality. In: Visual Information Engineering : The IEE International Conference on Visual Information Engineering (VIE 2005). January 2005. Stevenage: IET, pp. 17-22.
    Video communication systems currently provide poor quality and performance for deaf people using sign language, particularly at low bit rates. Our previous work, involving eye movement tracking experiments and analysis ...
