Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
This text covers the fundamental principles and technologies used in the design and analysis of video transport systems in digital networks. Video buffering, packet scheduling, multiplexing, and synchronization are among the more important topics covered. Other topics include system clock recovery, the generation of Presentation Time Stamps, and the prevention of decoder buffer under- and over- flows. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

    a nice reference

    I scaned through most of the chapters. It can be considered as a nice reference for studying principles of video transport. It contains many topics which are not covered by other video compression books. Overall, I like it.
