Michel Duval

Mark Handley

For development and leadership in the condition
monitoring of high-voltage power transformers and
related equipment

For contributions to Internet multicast, telephony,
congestion control, and the shaping of open Internet
standards and open-source systems in all these areas

Michel Duval is an internationally renowned leader in the field of
dissolved gas analysis (DGA) for condition monitoring of oilfilled power equipment such as high-voltage transformers.
Condition monitoring helps prevent service failures and aids
power companies in asset management of critical equipment.
One of the most reliable techniques for recognizing abnormal
behavior in transformers while the equipment is in operation,
DGA's use as a standard method for condition monitoring is
largely due to the efforts of Dr. Duval. The "Duval Triangle"
method has become an indispensable tool for DGA and is used
by hundreds of power utilities, service laboratories, and manufacturers of on-line gas monitors. He also established the typical
levels of gas formation observed in various types of electrical
equipment and the probability of equipment failure as a function
of in-service gas formation. An IEEE Life Fellow, Dr. Duval is
currently a senior research scientist with Hydro Quebec Institute
of Research, Quebec, Canada.

Mark Handley's contributions to Internet engineering have
paved the way for real-time multimedia, Internet telephony,
and multicast TV. He co-authored today's standard protocols
for multimedia signaling, including the Session Initiation
Protocol (for IP telephony and most 3G cellular networks). His
contributions helped overcome the limitations of Transmission
Control Protocol (TCP) congestion control. He collaborated on
TCP-Friendly Rate Control for handling Internet streaming and
telephony and on XCP explicit congestion control, a fundamentally new approach to congestion control. In 2001, Dr.
Handley and his colleagues devised the first Distributed Hash
Table (DHT) algorithm; today DHTs are widely used for indexing
data in very large distributed systems. He founded the XORP
project in 2000 to provide a complete open-source router implementation allowing researchers to experiment with new
protocols on real networks. Dr. Handley is currently professor
of networked systems at University College London.

Gisle Bjøntegaard, Gary J. Sullivan, and Thomas Wiegand
For leadership and technical contributions to the development of the globally
deployed video coding standard H.264/MPEG4-AVC
Gisle Bjøntegaard, Gary J. Sullivan, and Thomas Wiegand were
leading figures in the creation of the ground-breaking H.264/
MPEG4-AVC coding standard for the compression, transmission, recording, and storage of digital video. Released in May
2003, H.264/MPEG4-AVC has impacted technology ranging
from smart phones to Blu-Ray disc players and broadcast television. Dr. Bjøntegaard originated the proposal that became the
first reference model for the design of the standard and
continued to participate in driving further improvements in compression by numerous contributions during the standardization
process. As chair of the Joint Video Team, Dr. Sullivan wrote a
significant portion of the standard and managed the process
from Dr. Bjøntegaard's first proposal to the final version. He led
the team through enhancements addressing additional uses for
professional applications and scalable and three-dimensional
video coding and also made numerous technical contributions
including high-level syntax, network abstraction, timing indica-

tions, and hypothetical reference decoding. Dr. Wiegand, an
associate chair of the committee, was responsible for editing
the evolving standard and also made many technical contributions. His proposals became the basis of the scalable and
three-dimensional video extensions as well as the High Profile,
which is currently the most widely used profile of the standard,
addressing HDTV and Blu-Ray applications. Dr. Bjøntegaard is a
Cisco Fellow with Cisco Systems Norway, Oslo. An IEEE and
SPIE Fellow, Dr. Sullivan is a video and image technology
architect with Microsoft Corporation, Redmond, Wash. Dr.
Wiegand is an IEEE Fellow and professor and chair of the Image
Communication Laboratory at the Berlin Institute of Technology,
Germany and joint head of the Image Processing Department at
the Fraunhofer Institute for Telecommunications, Heinrich Hertz
Institute, Berlin.
