Answer:

  1. Please.
  2. Paul Dirac
  3. Erwin Schroedinger

The Beeb’s R&D division created a fully open non-patent-encumbered video codec and named it after Dirac. They also release/sponsor a freely available high-speed implementation of Dirac in C called Schroedinger, named after the man himself.

    Dirac is a prototype algorithm for the encoding and decoding of raw video. It was presented by the BBC in January 2004 as the basis of a new codec for the transmission of video over the Internet. BBC named it after the name of physicist Paul Dirac(2). The second implementation of Dirac codec is called Schrodinger Project (named after Erwin Schrodinger(3)). Both Dirac and Schrodinger have won a Nobel together.


  2. Vijay Shankar

    2 – Dirac, 3 – Schrodinger.
    Connect – BBC uses a codec named after Dirac and is now working on another one to be named after Schrodinger.


  3. 1)BBC
    2)Pual Dirac
    3)Schrodinger

    The Dirac codec presented by the BBC as the basis of a new codec for the transmission of video over the Internet and the Schrodinger project is the second Phase of the same


  4. the BBCs Video Codec is called Dirac .. No idea about the third guy.

    Dirac(codec) is a prototype algorithm for the encoding and decoding of raw video which was presented by the BBC.

    A second implementation of the Dirac codec is called Schrödinger.

    dirac codec.. codename scrodinger project was presented by the BBC


  7. svgreatest

    Dirac and Schrödinger are codecs by BBC


  8. nishansolo

    Connect – Dirac Codec

    1. BBC – Dirac Codec was presented by the BBC in January 2004 as the basis of a new codec for the transmission of video over the Internet.

    2. Paul Dirac – The Codec is named in honour of Paul Dirac.

    3. Erwin Schrödinger – A second implementation of the Dirac codec called “Schrödinger” aims to provide portable libraries.

    Dirac Codec


  10. priyananda

    Connect is Dirac.

    1. BBC’s video codec is called Dirac.
    2. PAM Dirac himself.
    3. Erwin Shroedinger, who shared the nobel prize with PAM Dirac.

    1) BBC
    2) Paul Dirac
    3) Erwin Schrodinger.

    1) has named its video codec after 2) and 3)

    Nice question.

    BBC video codecs.

    Project Schrodinger was the codename used by BBC R&D to develop Dirac, a video codec, named after Paul Dirac.


  15. Anush

    Dirac (2) is a video codec developed by BBC Research (1) and Schrodinger (3) is a high speed implementation of the codec in C.


  16. malcaluffin

    paul dirac – The BBC named its video codec Dirac in his honour

    erwin schrodinger-A second implementation of the dirac codec was called “Schrödinger”.


  17. 1-BBC
    2-Dirac
    3-Schrodinger

    2,3 are both protypes developed by 1 for decoding/encoding videos.


  18. Dinesh

    BBC has named video codecs after Paul Dirac and Erwin Scrhrodinger
