Scalable Video on Demand: Adaptive Internet-based Distribution examines how current video compression and streaming can be used to deliver high-quality applications over the Internet. In addition to analysing the problems of client heterogeneity and the absence of Quality of Service in the Internet, this book:
- assesses existing products and encoding formats;
- presents new algorithms and protocols for optimised on-line video streaming architectures;
- includes real-world application examples and experiments;
- sets out a practical ‘toolkit’ for Dynamically Reconfigurable Multimedia Distribution Systems.
Written by an expert in the field of video distribution, Scalable Video on Demand: Adaptive Internet-based Distribution provides a novel approach to the design and implementation of Video-on-Demand systems for Software Engineers and researchers. It will also be useful for graduate students following Electronic Engineering and Computer Science courses.
