About the Editors

Kok Keong Loo (a.k.a. Jonathan Loo) is currently a Reader in Multimedia Communications at the School of Engineering and Information Sciences, Middlesex University, UK. He is also an Adjunct Associate Professor at Multimedia University, Malaysia. He received an MSc degree in Electronics (with Distinction) and a PhD degree in Electronics and Communications from University of Hertfordshire, UK in 1998 and 2003, respectively. Between August 2003 and May 2010, he was a Lecturer in Multimedia Communications at the School of Engineering and Design, Brunel University, UK. During this period, he was also the Course Director for MSc in Digital Signal Processing.

He is involved in research projects, for example he is the principle investigator for a BBC funded project on Dirac video codec research and development. He is also a co-investigator for several European funded projects namely IST-FP6 PLUTO, IST-FP6 ENABLE, and recently the IST-FP7 3D-Vivant. He is currently supervising 14 PhD candidates. In the PLUTO project, he was the lead research engineer involved in the design of low-cost channel repeater for DVB-T using "software defined radio" approach. His research interests are in the area of multimedia communications, which include visual media processing, video coding and transmission, wireless communications, digital signal processing, embedded systems and wireless network, protocols and security. To date, he has published over 120 publications (guest editorial, book chapters, journals, conferences) in the aforementioned areas. For more information about his research, see

Professor Jaime Lloret received his M.Sc. in Physics in 1997, his M.Sc. in electronic Engineering in 2003 and his Ph.D. in telecommunication engineering (Dr. Ing.) in 2006. He is a Cisco Certified Network Professional Instructor. He worked as a network designer and as an a
