Издательство John Wiley, 2003, -306 pp.With the widespread adoption of technologies such as digital television, Internet streaming video and DVD-Video, video compression has become an essential component of broadcast and entertainment media. The success of digital TV and DVD-Video is based upon the 10-year-old MPEG-2 standard, a technology that has proved its effectiveness but is now looking distinctly old-fashioned. It is clear that the time is right to replace MPEG-2 video compression with a more effective and efficient technology that can take advantage of recent progress in processing power. For some time there has been a running debate about which technology should take up MPEG-2’s mantle. The leading contenders are the International Standards known as MPEG-4 Visual and H.264. This book aims to provide a clear, practical and unbiased guide to these two standards to enable developers, engineers, researchers and students to understand and apply them effectively. Video and image compression is a complex and extensive subject and this book keeps an unapologetically limited focus, concentrating on the standards themselves (and in the case of MPEG-4 Visual, on the elements of the standard that support coding of ‘real world’ video material) and on video coding concepts that directly underpin the standards. The book takes an application-based approach and places particular emphasis on tools and features that are helpful in practical applications, in order to provide practical and useful assistance to developers and adopters of these standards.Introduction Video Formats and Quality Video Coding Concepts The MPEG-4 and H.264 Standards MPEG-4 Visual H.264/MPEG-4 Part 10 Design and Performance Applications and Directions
