Intelligent Image and Video Compression: Communicating Pictures, Second Edition explains the requirements, analysis, design and application of a modern video coding system. It draws on the authors' extensive academic and professional experience in this field to deliver a text that is algorithmically rigorous yet accessible, relevant to modern standards and practical. It builds on a thorough grounding in mathematical foundations and visual perception to demonstrate how modern image and video compression methods can be designed to meet the rate-quality performance levels demanded by today's applications and users, in the context of prevailing network constraints.

  • An approach that combines algorithmic rigor with practical implementation using numerous worked examples
  • Explains how video compression methods exploit statistical redundancies, natural correlations, and knowledge of human perception to improve performance
  • Uses contemporary video coding standards (AVC, HEVC and VVC) as a vehicle for explaining block-based compression
  • Provides broad coverage of important topics such as visual quality assessment and video streaming
  • Available to buy
