Summary "More and more information, audio and video but also a range of other information type, is generated, processed and used by machines today, even though the end user may be a human. The result over the past 15 years has been a substantial increase in the type of information and change in the way humans generate, classify, store, search, access and consume information. Conversion of information to digital form is a prerequisite for this enhanced machine role, but must be done having in mind requirements such as compactness, fidelity, interpretability etc. This book provides an overview of the basic technology and mechanisms underpinning the operation of MPEG standards. It is a valuable reference for those making decisions in products and services based on digital media, those with general background, engaged in studies or developments of MPEG-related implementations, and those curious about MPEG and its role in the development of successful, standard technologies"--Provided by publisher
