From the Inside Flap:

We are witnessing an explosive growth in use of multiple media forms (voice, data, images and video etc.) in varied application areas including entertainment, communication, collaborative work, electronic commerce and university courses. The increasing computing power, integrated with multimedia and telecommunication technologies, is bringing into reality our dream of real time, virtually face-to-face interaction with collaborators sitting far away from us. In the process of realizing our technological ambitions, we need to address a number of technology, management and design issues. We need to be familiar with exciting current applications. It is impossible to track the magnitude and breadth of changes that the multimedia and communication technology is bringing daily to us in many different ways throughout the world. Consequently this book presents an overview of the expanding technology beginning with application techniques that lead to management and design issues. Our goal is to highlight major multimedia networking issues, understanding and solution approaches, and networked multimedia applications design. Because we wanted to include diverse ideas from various locations, chapters from professionals and researchers from about thirteen countries working in the forefront of this technology are included. This book has nineteen chapters, which include the following major multimedia networking areas.

· Development and management of real time distributed multimedia applications · Audio/video applications and streaming issues · Protocols and technologies for building Internet multimedia applications · QOS frameworks and implementation · Collaborative applications · Multimedia synchronization in distributed environment · Multicasting technology and applications · Use of mobile multimedia over wireless network.

The chapters in this book address the dynamic and efficient usage of the resources, which are the fundamental aspects of multimedia networks and applications. This book also details some current research, applications and future research directions. The following paragraphs are intended to put together the abstracts from each chapter in a manner to provide an overview of the topics covered.
