Computer and Information Science
This book presents an in-depth study of video coding and elucidates its applications. It targets to bring together latest developments and applications of video coding. This book can be beneficial for researchers, engineers, graduate and postgraduate students, experts in this field, and hopefully, also for people who hold interest in video coding. The book talks about error resilient algorithms for H.264/AVC, wavelet-based coding, concerning latest video coding standards, high efficiency video coding (HEVC), multiple description coding, developed compression techniques for multimedia applications, shape compensation, region of interest (ROI) coding, facial video coding, and hardware implementations. Also, it provides many helpful ideas for your own research and aids to bridge the gap between basic video coding techniques and practical multimedia applications. We hope this book will make for a good read and help in contributing to video coding.
