Dr. Rehan Hafiz

Posted on: April 19th, 2014 by rehan hafiz

Dr. Rehan Hafiz has over eight years of R&D experience in the area of Digital Embedded Systems, Design of architectures for hardware accelerators and applied Vision &  Image Processing. Earlier, he founded the Vision Image & Signal Processing (VISpro) Lab at School of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science, NUST in 2011. Under his leadership, VISpro lab set up a joint collaboration with South Korea’s premium research organization, Electronics and Telecommunication Research Institute (ETRI), South Korea, to develop a state of the art Ultra High Definition (UHD) Panorama Generation and Multi Projector Rendering System. Such UHD based ultra-wide angle displays hold the future for next generation immersive displays. Technologies based on UHD content & projection systems shall find place in upcoming home theaters & television broadcasting systems. UHD-TV consists of extremely high resolution imagery and multichannel sound to give viewers a stronger sensation of presence. He and his team filed 7 US and Korean Patent applications, out of which two patents have already been accepted. Dr. Rehan has published several journal and conference articles related to custom processor design, approximate computing, application specific processor designing, video stabilization & multi projector rendering.
