Insights Into Mobile Multimedia Communications. Signal Processing
and its Applications

Description:    Personal multimedia communication is the major growth area in engineering today with many
                people across the world in industry and academia working on the design of future generations of
                mobile radio systems and source coding methods. Before multimedia applications can be truly
                successful in mobile environments, many technologically demanding problems must be resolved. In
                order to provide the user with a suitable end-to-end service for multimedia applications, complex
                systems, interfaces and coding schemes need to be developed. In mobile multimedia, the air
                interface bandwidth requirements are likely to be dominated by the needs of one key service:
                video. Even with today's most aggressive compression algorithms, the needs of video exceed the
                bandwidth available with existing mobile connections. Although available bandwidth will increase,
                with the introduction of UMTS and local services based on wireless LANs (such as HiperLan), it is
                clear that advances in radio technology and air interface design must go hand in hand with
                innovations in source and channel coding.
                The purpose of this book is to present an integrated view of advanced radio systems, network
                architectures and source coding that demonstrates the state-of-the-art as well as future directions
                in this rapidly developing field. The book acts as a repository of ideas, design examples, and
                advanced techniques for research staff, practicing engineers, and technical managers alike. Since
                the contributions are drawn from international experts in both academia and industry, the book
                should be attractive to both practicing professional engineers and researchers worldwide.
