# DIGITAL-MOVING PICTURES - CODING AND TRANSMISSION ON ATM NETWORKS

**J.-P. Leduc**

ISBN **0444817867**

Pages **588**

Description

Image communication technologies have advanced rapidly in recent years and the book series, Advances in Image Communication

is dedicated to documenting these developments. Third in the series, this publication contributes as effectively as its forerunners to the multidisciplinary overview afforded by the series as a whole. At the same time, it stands alone as a comprehensive synopsis of its own particular area of interest.

The book specifically explores two complementary topics, namely:

the coding algorithms made to compress the data rate of digital moving-picture sequences (video-telephony, television [TV] and high-definition television [HDTV]) and

the transmission on Asynchronous Transfer Mode [ATM] networks (packet-switching transmission media). It provides an in-depth view of the current state-of-the-art and endeavors to stimulate increasing research efforts for the future.
