Description Table of Contents Author Information

Multimedia hardware still cannot accommodate the demand for large amounts of visual data. Without the generation of high-quality video bitstreams, limited hardware capabilities will continue to stifle the advancement of multimedia technologies. Thorough grounding in coding is needed so that applications such as MPEG-4 and JPEG 2000 may come to fruition.

Image and Video Compression for Multimedia Engineering provides a solid, comprehensive understanding of the fundamentals and algorithms that lead to the creation of new methods for generating high quality video bit streams. The authors present a number of relevant advances along with international standards.

New to the Second Edition

·         A chapter describing  the recently developed video coding standard, MPEG-Part 10 Advances Video Coding also known as H.264

·         Fundamental concepts and algorithms of JPEG2000

·         Color systems of digital video

·         Up-to-date video coding standards and profiles

Visual data, image, and video coding will continue to enable the creation of advanced hardware, suitable to the demands of new applications. Covering both image and video compression, this book yields a unique, self-contained reference for practitioners tobuild a basis for future study, research, and development.

  • Analyzes both statistical and psychovisual redundancies and explains how the removal of these redundancies leads to image and video compression
  • Covers lossy and lossless encoding as well as the four modes of operation
  • Describes the first pel recursive techniques and several improvement algorithms
  • Contains numerous exercises and offers a solutions manual with qualifying course adoptions
  • Supplies PDFs of the approximately 200 images in the text, available online for course instructors
