Emerging Research on Networked Multimedia Communication Systems

Book Description

Innovations in multimedia technology have truly revolutionized communication, transforming the definitions of text, audio, and visual information through hybrid combinations of these forms. The rise of multimedia systems has generated new methods for high-speed data capturing, processing, editing, storage, and dissemination across wide networks, creating a need for high-level surveillance and quality-monitoring control schemes. Emerging Research on Networked Multimedia Communication Systems provides a comprehensive overview of the most current theoretical frameworks, technological developments, and empirical research findings in the field of electronic media. This timely reference work also investigates numerous issues related to multimedia sharing and optimization over heterogeneous wired and wireless networks, making it a relevant learning tool for scholars, practitioners, and educators in the multimedia research arena. This authoritative resource features a comprehensive collection of research-based articles on topics ranging from fundamental issues in multimedia optimization to breakthrough advancements in the deployment of multimedia systems, including group synchronization control, video coding, video transmission, video broadcasting, and discussions of recent developments in Quality of Experience (QoE), Quality of Service (QoS), and Video over IP (VoIP) services.
