Computer and Information Science
This book aims to educate readers about the process of video compression using advanced researches and information. Video compression has significantly advanced as a field. However, much research is still underway towards discovering new developments in this domain. With an escalation in the quality of the compressed video for a given size or bit rate, there is also an increase in user’s expectations and their intolerance towards artefacts. Significant progress in compression technology has led to its diverse applications, with essential applications in television broadcast field. Compression technology is the foundation of digital television. This book has been compiled keeping in mind the interests of scientists and development engineers. The purpose of this book is to provide significant information regarding the broader field of compression surpassing the encoder centric approach and to acknowledge the need for video quality assurance. It includes elucidations on compressive and distributed video coding, motion estimation and video quality.
