    I wonder what new "technology" he developed to "redesign" how JPG images are "compressed"? If it does it in real time on a plain ARM processor then congrats to him on achieving something that the neither the joint picture expert group or the motion picture expert group with all their multinational resources and years of research seemed willing to achieve. Something tells me though that we are not getting the full story here.

    Now this is great. An everyday, yet techy person redesigns how JPG image compression works to make full HD videos at 30FPS. Fantastic.
