Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Thirteen chapters explain the compression of digital video for transport over networks as required for the design of end-to-end systems. The first two chapters cover compressed video fundamentals and standards, specifically the H-series and MPEG video coding standards. The second section reviews the fundamentals of three different networks<-->IP-based, wireless and ATM networks<-->and focuses on aspects that impact the transport of compressed video. Part three reviews issues and techniques related to the transport of compressed video over generic networks. These chapters treat error concealment, layered coding, error resilience coding, variable bit rate coding, and the use of feedback of rate and loss information. The last three chapters discuss the transport of compressed video over the internet and wireless networks, and the ITU-T and DAVIC systems standards for videophone and videoconferencing.
