Here's what every TV engineer needs to know about JPEG and MPEG!Digital television, Internet video, DVD, and videoconferencing; allrequire a solid practical and theoretical understanding of videocompression options, both for storage and transmission. This guide, written by a video engineer for video engineers, gives you theexpertise you need to stay on top in the field. It reviews JPEG, MPEG-1, and MPEG-2\=today's most widely used image compressionstandards - and presents an intriguing glimpse at other systemscurrently in development. From the fundamentals of the sampled imagesthat form the actual input to any compression system to the availablecompression tools and performance considerations, the material isclear, concise, and richly relevant. Each chapter covers the basicsfirst, and then goes into greater detail, making the book easilyaccessible to readers at all levels of familiarity with the topic.MPEGtransport schemes, switching of MPEG, and audio compression schemesare also covered. This practical guide will be helpful to any video, audio, or broadcast engineer interested in maintainingtransmission/storage quality or in being able to more reliablydiagnose compression-related problems.This practical guide will be helpful to any video, audio, or broadcast engineer interested in maintainingtransmission/storage quality or in being able to more reliablydiagnose compression-related problems.
