Douglas Dixon papers, 1981-2003

Accession: 2464-09-15.
Scope and Content:

The Douglas Dixon papers are composed of records generated by Dixon during his tenure as a project manager at the Sarnoff Corporation (1993-2003). They encompass notes and presentations related to projects Dixon oversaw – such as VideoBrush, Just Noticeable Difference (JND), and GreatHomeVideo (GHV) – all of which allowed home consumers to manipulate photos or videos for improved quality or performance. This series also includes background and research materials, such as scientific articles on optics, and press clippings of competitors’ products. Of special note in Series I is a DVD containing video excerpts of the projects Dixon oversaw, including a virtual reality video game called "Palenque."

One of Dixon's lab notebooks (1984) can be found in Record group 26.
