9780130616210: The MPEG-4 Book (Prentice Hall Imsc Press Multimedia Series)

MPEG 4 is the first standard that views multimedia content as a set of audio-visual objects that are presented, manipulated, and transported individually. It addresses the coded representation of both natural and synthetic (i.e., computer generated) audio and visual objects.

MPEG-4 represents a breakthrough in multimedia, delivering not just outstanding compression but also a fully interactive user experience.

Fernando Pereira and Touradj Ebrahimi, together with a unique collection of key MPEG experts, demonstrate how MPEG-4 addresses tomorrow's multimedia applications more successfully than any previous standard. They review every element of the standard to offer you a book that covers:

  • Synthetic and natural audio and video object coding, description and synchronization
  • BIFS—the MPEG-4 language for scene description and interaction
  • The extensible MPEG-4 textual format XMT
  • Transport and delivery of MPEG-4 content
  • MPEG-J: using Java classes within MPEG-4 content
  • A complete overview of MPEG-4 Profiles and Levels
  • Verification tests

The authors also walk through the MPEG-4 Systems Reference Software ?offering powerful real-world insights for every product developer, software professional, engineer, and researcher involved with MPEG-4 and state-of-the-art multimedia delivery.

Part of the new IMSC Press Series from the Integrated Multimedia System Center at the University of Southern California, a federally funded center specializing in cutting-edge multimedia research.
