Editorial Reviews

Addresses the transmission of image and video information over wireless channels, especially mobile radio channels where multipath fading effects pose challenges to researchers in the development of mobile videophone systems. Early chapters provide background on source and channel coding of images and video, with description of the latest video coding standard, MPEG-4, followed by radio channel modeling. Later chapters concentrate on system aspects, with descriptions of error-resilient, combined-source channel image and video coders, multiple access spread spectrum communication systems, and future wireless video communication systems. Ngan is head of the Visual Communications Research Group at the University of Western Australia. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
