Later is er ook nog eens een Belg geweest die zulke revolutionaire lossless compressietechniek had uitgedoktert, hij kon een dvd opslaan op een disketje. Is al enkele jaren geleden, ik kan me niet meer herinneren hoe zijn naam was, het enige dat ik weet is dat hij van Antwerpen was en dat de naam frans klinkend was. Maar ook niks meer gehoord van die man en/of zijn compressie.
Weet iemand misschien nog over wie ik het hier heb?
Man from Antwerp demonstrates code with unlimited possibilities
Twenty DVD-Movies on a single CD-ROM
His representative calls him MacGuyver and even compares him to the not-understood astronomer Galileo. Fact is that this inhabitant of Antwerp Guillaume Defosse developed a system -,, no, don't call it compression'' - which makes it possible for him to write 20 DVD-movies on a single CD-ROM to name one thing. All of this without loss of quality. ingenious! "first see, then believe", we thought.
By Marc Coppens - Antwerp
The name Defosse will probably not sound familiar to many people. Exceptions may be musiclovers, because Defosse composes Acid Techno music and his work is appreciated very much in the DJ-world. The 47-year old man from Antwerp is auto-didactic (sp?) and has been fascinated by computers for already 20 years.
Four years ago he wanted to put all his CD's on ONE cd. This turned out to be the beginning of DGS (Defosse Digital System). DGS is a digital language that makes it possible to process data, sound and video in such a way that it can be stored and send in a efficient way. Defosse showed us a few usages. We could not discover any fraud or attempts to deceive us by the demonstration of the following usages:
Unlimited Photo Zoom:
We start using a photograph of 3 by 3 centimeter. In a photocentrum (sp? /place specialized in working with photographs) it was impossible to zoom in 2000 times and maintaining an acceptable quality. Defosse however seems to be able to do this (without loss of quality!) Using his technique, a A3-color-printer, a scissor and tape. He resised a photo that we did bring along a few thousand times in just a few minutes time. The file is just 19 MB and Defosse even dares to say he can bring that back to about 500 KB.
20 DVD's on 1 CD-R:
Twenty DVD's can fit on a single CD-ROM. On a single CD-ROM it's possible to store about 650 MB of information. In some cases it can be a little more. One DVD can store from 4,7 to 8,5 GB. Defosse shows us a DVD-movie he shrunk to an unbelievable 30 MB. A quick calculation tells us that you could easily store 20 DVD's on a single CD-R.
Video and Audio on a single floppy:
A single floppy has a capacity of 1,44 MB. Normally it's not really possible to store a movie on it. Defosse however managed to save a movie of about 8 minutes (a report of the WTC-disaster) on a floppy. The sound ik ok; the video via Windows Media Player is acceptable. "Using a specific player (for my system) you'll get half an hour of TV full-screen on your floppy" he assures us.
According to his representative Jan Franck the interest in Defosse's invention has become very great. Audio- and movie-files of limited size offer enormous possibilities. "Especially regarding the transmission". Thanks to DGS it would become very easy to send video over UMTS (3rd generation mobile phones which become available in late 2002.
Ik kan daar dus verder niets meer over terugvinden via google...Zou de arme man ontvoerd zijn door aliens?
