Readings in Multimedia Computing and Networking

Readings in Multimedia Computing and Networking captures the broad areas of research and developments in this burgeoning field, distills the key findings, and makes them accessible to professionals, researchers, and students alike. For the first time, the most influential and innovative papers on these topics are presented in a cohesive form, giving shape to the diverse area of multimedia computing. The seminal moments are recorded by a dozen visionaries in the field and each contributing editor provides a context for their area of research by way of a thoughtful, focused chapter introduction. The volume editors, Kevin Jeffay and HongJiang Zhang, offer further incisive interpretations of past and present developments in this area, including those within media and content processing, operating systems, and networking support for multimedia. This book will provide you with a sound understanding of the theoretical and practical issues at work in the field's continuing evolution.

  • "There has long been a chasm between researchers and practitioners in a field that requires making good choices from a wide range of disciplines. This book, with its extensive references, closes that gap."
    —Dan Swinehart, Principal Scientist, Xerox Palo Alto Research Center

    "The first comprehensive survey of all the layers of compressing, storing, transporting, and indexing multimedia content. The selection of papers covers both the intellectual history of the field as well as the state of the art. I look forward to using the book in courses I teach."
    —Henning Schulzrinne, Associate Professor, Columbia University
    "Here are seminal papers from a group of the top researchers in the field, who help set the tone for future inventions and discoveries. The editors provide overviews and suggest the best sources for additional study, to bring us up to date, across the board, in this rapidly developing area. I know of no other place where you can find so much important information about multimedia information, systems, and networking."
    —Edward A. Fox, Professor, Virginia Polytechnic University
