From the Back Cover:

This new multimedia text comes from experienced instructors who have taught upper-level undergraduate and graduate courses for more than five years. Developed from materials actually used in class, Fundamentals of Multimedia introduces all the important multimedia topics for students in computer science and engineering. The text presents an overview of the tools and taxonomy of multimedia authoring, including data representations for images, video, and audio; vital aspects of color; data compression; multimedia communication and retrieval: and content-based retrieval in digital libraries.

Coverage includes:
  • Authoring tools such as music sequencers, image and video editors, popular languages such as XML and SMIL, and programs such as Director®, Flash™, and VRML
  • Graphics/image/video/audio data representations, including color models, HDTV, MIDI, and audio coding
  • Compression formats and standards for data, images, audio, and video, including both lossless and lossy formats
  • Multimedia networks, considering QoS, VoIP, media-on-demand, and multimedia over wireless networks
  • Content-based retrieval in digital libraries

A companion instructor website provides complete materials and topics for a multimedia course. In addition, an open textbook website at http://www.cs.sfu.ca/mmbook hosts a large collection of student resources.
