    The high computational cost of the motion estimation module in the new HEVC standard raises the need for efficient hardware architectures that can meet the real-time processing constraint. In addition, targeting HD and UHD ...
  • Conceptualizing brand consumption in social media community 

    Davis, Robert; Piven, I.; Breazeale, M. (Academic Conferences and Publishing International Limited, 2014-07)
    The emergence of social media is challenging the conceptualization of the brand. This paper develops a conceptual model of the consumption of brands in Social Media Community (SMC). The research triangulates a social media ...
  • Under the Mountain - how a volcanic peak has influenced the culture, ecology and landscape history of Taranaki, New Zealand 

    Davies, Renee; Lambert, R. E. (International Federation of Landscape Architects Asia Pacific (IFLA - Asia Pacific), 2015-09-07)
    Mount Taranaki/Egmont occupies a central place in the history and culture of Taranaki people – Maori and European. The mystical qualities of the volcanic mountain have influenced the culture, ecology and landscape history ...
  • A design methodology for performance maintenance of 3D Network-on-Chip with multiplexed Through-Silicon Vias 

    Madipour, Farhad; El-Sayed, M.; Murakami, K.; Said, M. (ACM DL (Digital Library), 2015-06)
    3D integration is an emerging technology that overcomes 2D integration process limitations. The use of short Through-Silicon Vias (TSVs) introduces a significant reduction in routing area, power consumption, and delay. ...
