Abstract: Multimedia Communication Technology by Ohm is an excellent textbook of multimedia dealing with the optimization of multimedia communication systems. To give comprehensive treatment to theory and practical of multimedia, the author has included the theoretical background of one-and multidimensional signal processing, statistical analysis and modeling, coding and information theory as well as estimation and classification theory. To help both students as well as professionals involved in multi-media applications a number of practical examples are given for algorithms and design of multimedia signal compression and transmission systems. This also helps to evolve own solutions and carry out systems performing content analysis and indexing of multimedia signals. Multi media communication technology has given lot of cutting edge to the corporate world as well as entertainment electronics
The book is well organized into logical sequence of chapters which provide easy readability and comprehension of the subject. These chapters are – Introduction to multimedia; Signal and Sampling; Statistical Analysis of Multimedia Signals; Linear Systems and Transforms; Pre-and post-processing; Perceptual Properties of Vision and Hearing; Features of Multimedia Signals; Signal and Parameter Estimation; Feature Transforms and Classification; Signal Decomposition; Quantization and Coding; Still Image Coding; Video Coding; Audio Coding; Transmission and storage; Signal Composition, Rendering and Presentation; Multimedia Representation Standards
A very informative and useful book on multimedia theory and practice.
