"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
