Research

Forschungsschwerpunkte: Multimedia, Videocodierung, Bildverarbeitung, Internet-Videostreaming

Bernd Girod ist ein deutscher Ingenieur. In seiner wissenschaftlichen Arbeit beschäftigt er sich vor allem mit Verfahren der Videocodierung, der Bildverarbeitung und mit Multimedia-Systemen. Er gilt als Pionier des Internet-Video-Streaming.

Girods Bilder-, Video- und Multimedia-Forschungsgruppe entwickelt Algorithmen und Strukturen für die Übertragung, Speicherung, Auffindung, Bearbeitung und interaktive Nutzung von multimedialen Daten und Signalen wie Audio- und Videodateien, Bildern, Grafiken und Texten, oft auch in Kombination. Aktuell beschäftigt sich die Forschungsgruppe vor allem mit Mobile Visual Search, Mobile Augmented Reality und personalisierten Medien. Neben der theoretischen Analyse und Experimenten zur Grundlagenforschung entwickeln Girod und seine Forscher auch Echtzeit-Testverfahren und Prototypen, um ihre Ideen zu überprüfen und vorzustellen. Über 25 US-Patente sind auf seinen Namen angemeldet.

Neben seiner Hochschultätigkeit ist Girod seit vielen Jahren als Unternehmer, Firmengründer, Investor und Berater erfolgreich. Erwähnenswert ist besonders die Gründung von Vivo Software (1993 - 1998), wo er nach der Fusion mit RealNetworks Chief Scientist der neuen Firma wurde (1998 - 2002). Er war Vorstandsmitglied der 8x8, Inc., Santa Clara, von 1996 bis 2004, und der GeoVantage, Inc., Swampscott (2000 - 2005). 2007 war er Mitgründer der Dyyno, Inc., in Palo Alto.

Derzeit berät er HearstLab, einen Firmeninkubator für StartUps in New York, die von Frauen geleitet werden.
