Dr. Guo received his PhD in Electrical Engineering from the University of Southern California.

Donald Pian - PhD, Algorithmic Engineer
Dr. Pian brings to Euclid more than 25 years of experience in multimedia processing and compression. He played a major role in developing the Qualcomm digital cinema and multimedia products based on the ABSDCT technology. Prior to Qualcomm, Dr. Pians work at Divio focused on MPEG-4 video compression algorithms, rate control, scene change detection, color space conversion, deringing and deblocking, as well as the design and implementation of digital filters for decimation, interpolation and noise reduction. His work for companies including Imedia Corporation, STMicrolectronics and Dolby, centered on MPEG-2 video encoding and re-encoding, development of microprocessors for multimedia applications and video pre-processing, variable bit rate encoding and digital cinema watermarking. Dr. Pian earned his PhD in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at MIT.

We are excited about the team weve brought together, said Euclid Discoveries CEO, Richard Wingard. These engineers and mathematicians are building the next generation of video processing and compression technology and their combined experience and vision are key to our continued advancements and success.

About Euclid Discoveries:
Euclid Discoveries is a video technology development company focused on the delivery of HD video over constrained networks. For over a decade Euclid has been tackling this challenge and has invented an innovative technology that delivers significant benefits in video distribution.

The company's patented technology utilizes object modeling to deliver improved video compression with no loss of visual quality. Until now, the company's technology has been operating exclusively on a proprietary codec. During the course of the company's research and development, it was discovered that certain components of the technology could operate entirely within the H.264 environment, delivering compression and video quality enhancements.
