    • Trusted Software Development Trusted Software Development Ian Bryant, TSI Recorded: Nov 6 2013 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    • Ian Bryant of the Trustworthy Software Initiative, represents that cadre of software engineers which is most concerned with ensuring that software development produces an output which meets exacting standards for quality and trustworthiness. Not all applications require such an approach, but where software is developed for highly sensitive services or in high reliability environments, an understanding of best practice in engineering is of great benefit. Ian will present the TSI model for discussion.

    • H. 264 Video coding tutorial H. 264 Video coding tutorial Iain Richardson Recorded: Mar 22 2010 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    • Video compression or video coding is essential to a wide range of products such as broadcast digital TV, DVD and Blu-Ray disks, internet video and mobile video. H.264 Advanced Video Coding is an industry standard format for compressed video which is key to many of these products. Participants in this webinar will learn how H.264 makes it possible to compress video through a combination of prediction, transforms and coding and will gain an insight into how to get the best from this popular compression format.

      About the presenter: Iain Richardson is the author of the two leading texts on H.264 Advanced Video Coding and is an internationally known expert in video compression. Director of Vcodex Ltd and OneCodec Ltd and Honorary Professor at RGU, Aberdeen, he is sought after as a speaker, consultant and expert witness on video compression technology.

    • Multicore and Scalability: What Really Matters for High Performance at Low Power Multicore and Scalability: What Really Matters for High Performance at Low Power Tony King-Smith Recorded: May 9 2012 1:00 pm UTC 57 mins
    • The term “multicore” is increasingly misunderstood and over-simplified, as many still think this simply refers to having more than one conventional CPU. In this seminar, we’ll explain how Imagination uses the concept of multiple datapaths and execution units utilising range of different hardware and software architectures to implement high performance, highly scalable IP (Intellectual Property) cores covering graphics (GPU), video (VPU), communications (RPU) as well as CPU functionality. Tony will also explain how Imagination uses this to deliver much more than just performance scaling, including power management, product portfolio, and application software flexibility.

    • Achieving the Productivity Gains of BYOD without compromising security Achieving the Productivity Gains of BYOD without compromising security Frank Domoney Recorded: Dec 10 2012 10:30 am UTC 53 mins
    • What it is about

      •Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is the Device Centric part of the Consumerisation of IT (COIT). BYOD unblocks many opportunities for significant Productivity gains for both large companies and small companies. The low cost of developing an App for a Smartphone or a Tablet can make the payback time very attractive. Allowing it to run on the employee’s preferred personal platform guarantees a higher take-up and usage of the app and allows a reduction in the replacement costs of PCs .

      •Attempting to achieve these gains without a methodical approach to evaluating the risks to the business might cause the company to fail to meet its compliance requirement, whether you are a Solicitor, a Financial Services company, or a Manufacturer supplying to a Defence Ministry or Government supply chain

      •60% of UK businesses are believed to be implementing BYOD either formally or informally but less than 40% are taking adequate security precautions. New Generation Viruses can bypass traditional Firewalls and Virus Protection and are targeted to steal Trade Secrets and High Value Financial Information from industry generally. The employee’s own Tablet or Smartphone with all their games and social networking might be the carrier that infects the network.

      •Companies need to protect themselves against the bad apple Insiders who will use the technology change to commit fraud or to steal the company’s trade secrets, source code, commercial information, without restricting their employee’s ability to carry out their day to day job.

      The Benefits of Watching

      •Find sources for more information about the implementation of BYOD.
      •Discover a framework for evaluating the decision to introduce, restrict or forbid the technique
      •Discover a framework for a sensible decision on how much to spend on securing the network in order to use it
      •Discover some of the existing resources to support introduction of the technique

    • The Art of Scalability: Scalable Web Architectue, Processes, and Organizations f The Art of Scalability: Scalable Web Architectue, Processes, and Organizations f Marty Abbot Michael Fisher Ian Osborne Recorded: Sep 19 2011 1:30 pm UTC 47 mins
    • Scalability is everyone’s problem. Designing for scale is more of an art than science. And, very few people understand scalability well-enough to design highly scalable systems and organisations. Is there an authoritative guidebook that can lead you through the process of building scalable systems? There seems to be one and here is an opportunity to listen to its authors Martin L. Abbott and Michael T. Fisher
      Marty Abbot is an inventor, entrepreneur, technologist and business leader with executive experience with Quigo,which was sold to AOL. Prior to Quigo, Marty served as the SVP of Technology at eBay. His full profile can be found here: http://akfpartners.com/about/marty-abbott
      Michael Fisher is an inventor, entrepreneur and veteran software and technology executive with Quigo (as CTO) and Paypal (Vice President, Engineering & Architecture). His full profile can be found here: http://akfpartners.com/about/michael-fisher
      Ian Osborne (Project Director, Intellect and ICT KTN, http://www.intellectuk.org/spokespeople/580), will engage the two authors on topics such as how to design scalable systems, associated challenges and a few ways to deal with them. Feel free to send your questions before the webinar to ian.osborne@ictktn.org.uk or Mahesha.Pandit@ictktn.org.uk
      This webinar is an initiative of Scalable Computing track of the ICT KTN.
