Security Agency (Council) of the Month


The Southwest Transportation Security Council (SWTSC) was formed to promote a partnership among Transportation Security Management groups and law enforcement to enhance communication and cooperation with a focus on transportation security and cargo theft in Texas and the Southwest area of the United States. Also to provide education to Law Enforcement Agencies and Officers about the transportation industry through partnership with the North Texas Crime Commission locally and to nationally partner with other transportation regional security industry councils and the Supply Chain – Information Sharing and Analysis Center to provide critical information and assistance to all members.

Please browse our site and learn how the transportation private sector and law enforcement have joined together in the Southwest Region of the United States to fight cargo crime and transportation security issues through education, information sharing and partnership.

I write and curate articles for this site that I think may be helpful, educational and even some that are original works. I am also a publish author of a number of articles on different technology subjects, not just through my own website but through nationally know channels as well. I have also been quoted for numerous articles as a subject matter expert in the fields of Managed Services and Cloud Services.

H.264/AVC 4×4 Transform and Quantization

1 Overview In an H.264/AVC codec, macroblock data are transformed and quantized prior to coding and rescaled and inverse transformed prior to reconstruction and display (Figure 1). Several transforms are specified in the H.264 standard: a 4×4 “core” transform, 4×4 and 2×2 Hadamard transforms and an 8×8 transform (High profiles only). Figure 1 Transform and quantization in […]

H.264/AVC Picture Management

1 Introduction This document introduces the parameters and processes involved in managing coded frames within the H.264/AVC standard. This document is informative only and readers should refer to the standard for accurate definitions of the parameters and processes described here. A frame or field of video is decoded from an access unit (a series of […]

H.264/AVC Loop Filter

1 Introduction This document describes the methods of filtering reconstructed blocks in an H.264 video compression codec. 2 Description of reconstruction filter A filter can be applied to every decoded macroblock in order to reduce blocking distortion. The deblocking filter is applied after the inverse transform in the encoder (before reconstructing and storing the macroblock […]

H.264/AVC Context Adaptive Variable Length Coding

1 Introduction The H.264 / AVC standard specifies two types of entropy coding: Context-based Adaptive Binary Arithmetic Coding (CABAC) and Variable-Length Coding (VLC). The Variable-Length Coding scheme is described in this document. 2  Coded elements Parameters that require to be encoded and transmitted include the following (Table 21). Above the slice layer, syntax elements are […]

H.264/AVC Context Adaptive Binary Arithmetic Coding (CABAC)

1 Introduction The H.264 Advanced Video Coding standard specifies two types of entrop coding: Context-based Adaptive Binary Arithmetic Coding (CABAC) and Variable-Length Coding (VLC). This document provides a short introduction to CABAC. Familiarity with the concept of Arithmetic Coding is assumed. 2 Context-based adaptive binary arithmetic coding (CABAC) In an H.264 codec, when entropy_coding_mode is […]

H.264/AVC Inter Prediction

1 Introduction This document describes the methods of predicting inter-coded macroblocks in P-slices in an H.264 video compression codec. Inter prediction creates a prediction model from one or more previously encoded video frames. The model is formed by shifting samples in the reference frame(s) (motion compensated prediction). The AVC CODEC uses block-based motion compensation, the same […]

1 What is H.264?

H.264 is an industry standard for video compression, the process of converting digital video into a format that takes up less capacity when it is stored or transmitted. Video compression (or video coding) is an essential technology for applications such as digital television, DVD-Video, mobile TV, videoconferencing and internet video streaming. Standardising video compression makes […]
