Multimedia and Communications Technology is a practical explanation of the technologies that bring together existing products such as the PC, telephone and television. It is precisely this revolution that the book addresses - offering an up to date technical overview of developments in PC technology, video and audio compression, telecommunications and many other disciplines. Written as a series of tutorials, the book starts with the fundamental techniques of digital audio and video, moving on to compression techniques such as JPEG and MPEG. The delivery systems for multimedia are then covered, starting with the CD and on to telephones, local and wide area networks and ATM and ASDL. The final chapters describe how these technologies are brought together in some key applications: · video conferencing · digital video broadcasting · video on demand · interactive television Steve Heath is responsible for European Strategy and Technology Development at Motorola. He has had many years experience in computer design and has presented papers on multimedia technology at international conferences. He is a well known technical writer and has written fourteen other books for Focal Press, Newnes and Butterworth-Heinemann.

During 12-15 of September 1999, 10th International Symposium on P- sonal, Indoor and Mobile Radio Communications (PIMRC’99) was held in Osaka Japan, and it was really a successful symposium that accommodated more than 600 participants from more than 30 countries and regions. PIMRC is really well organized annual symposium for wireless multimedia commu- cation systems, in which, various up-to-date topics are discussed in the invited talk, panel discussions and tutorial sessions. One of the unique features of the PIMRC is that PIMRC is continuing to publish, from Kluwer Academic Publishers since 1997, a book that collects the hottest topics discussed in PIMRC. In PIMRC’97, Invited talks were sum- rized in “Wireless Communications –TDMA versus CDMA – (ISBN 0-7923- 8005-3),” and it was published just beforePIMRC’97. This book was also distributed to all the PIMRC’97 participants as a part of proceedings for the conference. In PIMRC’98, extendedversion of the invited papers were s- marized in Wireless Multimedia Network Technologies (ISBN 0-7923-8633- 7) and published in September 1999, which is almost the same timing for the PIMRC’99. In the case of PIMRC’99, to produce more informative book, we have - lected topics that attracted many PIMRC’99 participants during the conf- ence, and invited prospective authors not only from the invited speakers but also from tutorial speakers, panel organizers, panelists, and some other exc- lent PIMRC’99 participants.

With the rapid evolution of multimedia communications, engineers and other professionals are generally forced to hoard a plethora of different texts and journals to maintain a solid grasp on essential ideas and techniques in the field. Wireless Multimedia Communications provides researchers and students with a primary reference to help readers take maximum advantage of current systems and uncover opportunities to propose new and novel protocols, applications, and services. Extract the Essentials of System Design, Analysis, Implementation A complete technical reference, the text condenses the essential topics of core wireless multimedia communication technologies, convergence, QoS, and security that apply to everything from networking to communications systems, signal processing, and security. From extensive existing literature, the authors distill the central tenets and primary methods of analysis, design, and implementation, to reflect the latest technologies and architectural concepts. The book addresses emerging challenges to inform the system standardization process and help engineers combat the high error rates and stringent delay constraints that remain a significant challenge to various applications and services. Keep Pace with Detailed Techniques to Optimize Technology The authors identify causes of information loss in point-to-point signal transmission through wireless channels, and then they discuss techniques to minimize that loss. They use examples that illustrate the differences in implementing various systems, ranging from cellular voice telephony to wireless Internet access. Each chapter has been carefully organized with the latest information to serve dual purposes as an easy-to-reference guide for professionals and as a principal text for senior-level university students.

As new communications applications are developed and brought to market, it is vital for communications professionals to keep abreast of these issues. Since the technologies and applications also affect our daily lives, it is important to understand how they will shape the country and, by extension, the world at large. International censorship, the impact of the Internet and wireless tools, and th legisation following the World Trade Center bombing all fall into this category. The New Communications Technologies, Fifth Edition, provides vital information on the new and emerging technologies that will shape the way communicators do business. The book explores the new communications technologies and covers topics ranging from multimedia and production to satellites to digital communication. Just as important, the book examines the social, economic, and political impact brought about by the adoption of such technologies and applications; this fallout includes privacy concerns, First Amendment issues, and the implications raised by biometric systems.

The uses of multimedia are rapidly increasing. Its power to present information in ways not previously possible and its integration of resources, allow for the creation of rich learning environments. Perspectives on Multimedia: Communication, Media and Information Technology provides a critical examination of the latest multimedia developments and approaches, such as Interface Technology and QoS architectures. Topics covered include: The key concepts intrinsic to digital forms of multimedia: integration, interactivity, hypermedia, immersion, narrativity and hybridity. The development of Information Technology (IT) usage in society and in the business community. How modern IT enables private companies and public organisations to support business operations, create new business opportunities, and to promote more proactive service management. Multimedia from a computer science perspective and how computer science provides the technical foundation for the computer software and hardware that drives the information age. Gives a broad range of perspectives on key issues for interactive multimedia in organisations and industry today. This book will be of interest to practitioners involved in multimedia development in an organisation, management consultants giving professional advice on digital solutions and information technology matters to their customer organisations and academics focusing on business and technical aspects of multimedia frameworks.
