From the Back Cover:

Multimedia Applications discusses the basic characteristics of multimedia document handling, programming, security, human computer interfaces, and multimedia application services. The overall goal of the book is to provide a broad understanding of multimedia systems and applications in an integrated manner.

This means that a multimedia application and its user interface must be developed in an integrated fashion with underlying multimedia middleware, operating systems, networks, security, and multimedia devices.

In this book we will present fundamental information and properties of hypermedia document handling, multimedia security and various aspects of multimedia applications. Especially of interest to the readers will be information about document handling and their standards,  programming of multimedia applications, design of multimedia information at human computer interfaces, multimedia security challenges such as encryption and watermarking,  multimedia in education, as well as multimedia applications to assist preparation, processing and application of multimedia content.
