This paper discusses modern problems of video informatics in the area of the formation, transmission, processing, analysis, and visualization of video information. The distinguishing feature of video informatics is that it treats these problems from a unified theoretical viewpoint, and this allows the characteristics of video-information systems to be developed and optimized as a unified whole. It is shown to be effective to use a theoretical–informational approach to analyze and optimize video-information systems, starting from the optical channel of radiation propagation in free space when images or multi-dimensional video data are being formed and concluding with the visualization system. Promising directions of further development of the methods of video informatics are highlighted.
