Издательство InTech, 2011, -410 pp.In the last decade, video has turned to be one of the most widely transmitted information sources, due to the extraordinary upsurge of new techniques, protocols and communication standards of increased bandwidth, computational performance, resilience and efficiency. Disruptive technologies, standards, services and applications – as exemplified by on-demand digital video broadcasting, interactive DVB, mobile TV, Bluray® or Youtube® – have undoubtedly benefited from significant advances on aspects belonging to the whole set of OSI layers, ranging from new video semantic models and context-aware video processing, to peer-to-peer information networking and enhanced physical-layer techniques allowing for a better exploitation of the available communication resources. As a result, this trend has given rise to a plethora of video coding standards such as H.261, H.263, ISO IEC MPEG-1, MPEG-2 and MPEG-4, which has progressively met the video quality requirements (e.g. bit rate, visual quality, error resilience, compression ratios and/or encoding delay) demanded by applications of ever-growing complexity. Research on video coding is foreseen to spread over the following years, in light of recent developments on three-dimensional and multi-view video coding. Motivated by this flurry of activity at both industry and academia, this book aims at providing the reader with a self-contained review of the latest advances and techniques gravitating on video coding, with a strong emphasis in what relates to architectures, algorithms and implementations. In particular, the contents of this compilation are mainly focused on technical advances in the video coding procedures involved in recently coined video coding standards such as H.264/AVC or H.264/SVC. Readers may also find in this work a useful overview on how video coding can benefit from cross-disciplinary tools (e.g. combinatorial heuristics) to attain significant end-toend performance improvements. On this purpose, the book is divided in 5 different yet related sections. First, three introductory chapters to H.264/SVC, H.264/AVC and region of interest video coding are presented to the reader. Next, Section II concentrates on reviewing and analysing different methods for controlling the rate of video encoding schemes, whereas the third section is devoted to novel algorithms and techniques for video coding. Section IV is dedicated to the design and hardware implementation of video coding schemes. Finally, Section V concludes the book by outlining recent research on semantic video coding.
