Advanced technologies have increased demands for visual information and higher quality video frames, creating a gap between the visual data required and limited hardware capabilities. Image and Video Compression for Multimedia Engineering bridges this gap with authoritative information on video and image coding that builds a foundation for future research. This second edition features complete chapters devoted to JPEG 2000 and MPEG-4. It includes an accompanying CD-ROM that contains illustrative examples of image and video compression. This text also provides coverage of the H.264 standard. For instructors, the book also offers a solutions manual as well as downloadable PDFs of all images in the text.
