Peter H.N. de With graduated in electrical engineering from the University of Technology in Eindhoven. In 1992, he received his Ph.D. degree from the University of Technology Delft, The Netherlands, for his work on video bit-rate reduction for recording applications. He joined Philips Research Labs Eindhoven in 1984, where he became a member of the Magnetic Recording Systems Department.

From 1985 to 1993, he was involved in several European projects on SDTV and HDTV recording. In this period, he contributed as a principal coding expert to the DV standardization for digital camcording. In 1994, he became a member of the TV Systems group at Philips Research Eindhoven, where he was leading the design of advanced programmable video architectures. In 1996, he became senior TV systems architect.

He was appointed as full professor at the University of Mannheim, Germany, at the faculty Computer Engineering in 1997. In Mannheim he was heading the chair on Digital Circuitry and Simulation with the emphasis on video systems.

Since 2000, he is with CMG Eindhoven (now LogicaCMG) as a principal consultant and he is professor at the University of Technology Eindhoven, at the faculty of Electrical Engineering. He is head of the Video Coding and Architectures group within Signal Processing Systems.

Regularly, he is a teacher of the Philips Technical Training Centre and for other post-academic courses. In 1995 and 2000, he co-authored papers that received the IEEE CES Transactions Paper Award, and in 2004, the VCIP Best Paper Award. In 1996, he obtained a company Invention Award. In 1997, Philips received the ITVA Award for its contributions to the DV standard. Mr. de With is a senior member of the IEEE, program committee member of the IEEE CES and ICIP, chairman of the Benelux community for Information and Communication Theory, co-editor of the historical book of this community, former scientific board member of CMG, scientific advisor of the Dutch Imaging school ASCII, IEEE ISCE and board member of various working groups.
