This volume details the essential elements for designing optimal end-to-end systems. It progresses from the fundamentals of both video compression and networking technologies to an extensive summary of the constant and continuous interaction between the fields. The work seeks to respond to the proliferation of networked digital video applications in daily life with in-depth analyses of technical problems and solutions.
Video: fundamentals of video compression - H.263 as an example; MPEG digital video coding standards. Networks: IP networks; ATM networks; wireless systems and networking. Systems for video networking: error concealment for video communication; layered coding; error resilience coding; variable bit rate video coding. Transport of compressed video: Internet video; wireless video; ITU-T and DAVIC systems standards.
