Kevin Jeffay is the S. Shepard Jones Professor of Computer Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Washington in 1989. Professor Jeffay has published widely in the areas of multimedia networking, operating systems, and real-time systems and he currently serves as the editor-in-chief of the ACM/Springer-Verlag journal Multimedia Systems. He was the program cochair of ACM Multimedia '99 (with HongJiang Zhang), program chair of NOSSDAV 2000 (the International Workshop on Network and Operating Systems Support for Digital Audio and Video), and the 2000 IEEE Real-Time Systems Symposium.
HongJiang Zhang obtained his Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the Technical University of Denmark in 1991. From 1992 to 1995, he was with the Institute of Systems Science at the National University of Singapore. In 1995 he joined Hewlett-Packard Laboratories, where he served as research manager. Currently he is a senior researcher and assistant managing director with Microsoft. Dr. Zhang has published more than 150 peer-reviewed research papers and book chapters and is a coauthor of Image and Video Processing in Multimedia Systems (Kluwer Academic Publishers). A member of the editorial boards for four international journals, a senior member of IEEE, and a member of ACM, Professor Zhang cochaired ACM Multimedia 99 and has served on the committees of over 40 other conferences on multimedia and image processing.
@qu:"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."

@qu:"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."

@qu:"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."
