    Are you a cable, DSL and wireless provider? If you are, then this book is for you. Author Benny Bing, has done an outstanding job of writing a book that addresses the key challenges facing cable, DSL and wireless providers, in delivering high quality next-generation video. Bing, begins this book by evaluating some game-changing trends in broadband TV. Next, the author focuses on cable access networks and their evolution to a switched digital video architecture to support high-speed information and entertainment delivery. Then, he discusses how the physical layer performs a number of processes. In addition, the author covers several important aspects of video compression, network transport, error resilience, video quality assessment, and an overview of emerging standards such as H.264, VC-1, and VP8. He also provides experimental insights into the key features of the H.264 standard and illustrates how the strengths of different capabilities can be harnessed in a complementary fashion. Then, he analyzes the bandwidth requirements of H.264 video traffic by analyzing the traffic pattern of the group of pictures of the video, the autocorrelation of the trace of B frames, and the cross-correlation between the trace of B frames and the trace of I and P frames. The author then analyzes the long-range dependency or self-similarity of MPEG video traffic and evaluates the accuracy of a new long-term traffic prediction model. Next, he presents a new lossless scheme to remove the FMO structure from H.264-encoded videos to allow playback on any H.264 decoder/player. The author then continues by presenting some error concealment schemes for videos encoded using the H.264 and VC-1 codecs. Also, the author presents methods to improve the efficiency and performance of 2D and #D HD video streaming over the Internet. Next, he describes the use of resource allocation and bandwidth management techniques when applied to broadband access networks, focusing on how bandwidth resources can be intelligently scheduled and managed for different traffic types. Then, the author presents the key issues and challenges associated with the optimization of switched digital video and video-on-demand services for DOCSIS 3.0 Hybrid-Fiber Coax cable access network. In addition, he presents two applications of an advanced surveillance system, specifically in suspicious activity detection and human fall detection, for both indoor and outdoor environments. Finally, the author presents the development of a gesture-based user interface that gives the consumer unrivaled living-room experience while enjoying premium-quality videos. This most excellent book delivers high quality next-generation video and discusses solutions to enhance customer satisfaction via improved quality of experience and service. More importantly, this book describes techniques that can be exploited to enhance video transmission over a broad range of networks.
