MPEG-4 represents a breakthrough in multimedia: it delivers not only outstanding compression but also a fully interactive experience -- allowing users to interact with objects on screen, whether those objects were generated from natural or synthetic sources. In this book, two leaders of the MPEG-4 standards community offer an in-depth, targeted guide to the MPEG-4 standard -- and its use in real, cutting-edge applications.KEY TOPICS:The authors demonstrate how MPEG-4 addresses the rapidly-evolving needs of telecommunications, broadcast, interactive, and converged applications more successfully than any previous standard. They review each component of the standard, with in-depth coverage of object description and synchronization; BIFS and scene description; the MPEG-J extension that permits the use of Java classes within MPEG-4 content; the extensible MPEG-4 textual format, and much more. Coverage includes: transporting and storing MPEG-4 content; coding of natural video, speech, and audio; Synthetic Natural/Hybrid Content (SNHC); and much more. The book also includes detailed coverage of profiling, conformance, and testing, as well as a walkthrough of a complete MPEG-4 reference software implementation. This book is part of the new IMSC Press series, from the Integrated Multimedia System Center at the University of Southern California, a federally funded center specializing in cutting-edge multimedia research.MARKET:For all academics, researchers, scientists, engineers, product developers, software architects, students, and users seeking up-to-date information about MPEG-4.
