About Us

The Visual Information Laboratory of the University of Bristol exists to undertake innovative, collaborative and interdisciplinary research resulting in world leading technology in the areas of computer vision, image and video communications, content analysis and distributed sensor systems. VI-Lab was formed in 2010, merging the two well established research groups, Signal Processing (EEEng) and Computer Vision (CS). The two constituent groups offer shared and complementary strengths and, with a history of successful collaboration since 1993, their merger has created one of the largest groupings of its type in the UK.

BRISTOL DRONE CINEMATOGRAPHY WORKSHOP

The MultiDrone Consortium organized the first Drone Cinematography Workshop at the University of Bristol on 6 December 2017. The aim of the workshop was to bring together experts in drone cinematography – users, producers, and…

BVISS: Pattern Recognition without Features or Training

Professor Fred Stentiford – UCL Pattern recognition is usually implemented through the use of a selected set of plausible features that characterise the data being studied. In addition it is also necessary to identify a…

BVI Seminar, Filipe Cristino, Bangor University

Seminar title, abstract and biography to be announced

BVI Seminar: Attentional selection of colour is determined by both cone-based and hue-based representations

Jasna Martinovic, University of Aberdeen What is the nature of representations that sustain attention to colour? In other words, is attention to colour predominantly determined by the low-level, cone-opponent chromatic mechanisms established at subcortical processing…

BVI Seminar: Eye Movements in Low and Normally Sighted Vision

Brian Sullivan, University of Bristol, School of Experimental Psychology  I will present two studies examining human eye movements and discuss my role at the University of Bristol. The first study concerns patients with central vision loss who…

BVI-HD: A Perceptual Video Quality Database for HEVC and Texture Synthesis Compressed Content

Fan Zhang, Felix Mercer Moss, Roland Baddeley and David Bull ABSTRACT BVI-HD is a new high definition video quality database, which contains 32 reference and 384 distorted video sequences. Reference material in this database was carefully…

BVI Seminar: Psychophysical probes into spatial vision: you ain’t seen nothin’ yet.

Tim Meese, School of Life and Health Sciences, Aston University. Everyone knows what cosmologists do: they gaze out into the sky to see the secrets of what’s out there, matching observations with theory to understand how…

Computational cameras

A novel close-to-sensor computational camera has been designed and developed at the ViLab. ROIs can be captured and processed at 1000fps; the concurrent processing enables low latency sensor control and flexible image processing. With 9DoF…
