9780852967102: Standard Codecs: Image Compression to Advanced Video Coding

This book discusses the growth of digital television technology and the revolution in image and video compression (such as JPEG2000, broadcast TV, video phone), highlighting the need for standardisation in processing static and moving images and their exchange between computer systems. The book gives an authoritative explanation of picture and video coding algorithms, working from basic principles through to the advanced video compression systems now being developed. One of its main objectives is to describe the reasons behind the introduction of a standard codec for a specific application and its chosen parameter.

From the Back Cover:

A fully revised and substantially updated 3rd edition of the best-selling Video Coding: An Introduction to Standard Codecs (IEE 1999, Winner of IEE Rayleigh Award as the best book of 2000), this book discusses the growth of digital television technology from image compression to advanced video coding. This third edition also introduces the latest developments on H.264/MPEG-4 video coding and the scalability defined for this codec, which were not available at the time of the previous edition (IEE 2003). The book highlights the need for standardisation in processing static and moving images and extensively exploits the ITU and ISO/IEC standards defined in this field. The book gives an authoritative explanation of pictures and video coding algorithms, working from basic principles through to the advanced compression systems now being developed. It discusses the reasons behind the introduction of a standard video codec and chosen parameters. Each chapter is devoted to a standard video codec and chapters are introduced in evolutionary manner complementing the earlier chapters. This book will enable readers to appreciate the fundamentals needed to design a video codec for any given application and should prove a valuable resource for managers, engineers and researchers working in this field.
