Multimedia Services and Streaming for Mobile Devices: Challenges and Innovations
A book edited by Dr. Elsa Macias and Dr. Alvaro Suarez
University of Las Palmas de G.C., Spain
To be published by IGI Global: http://www.igi-global.com/requests/details.asp?ID=828
Multimedia services include the processing and communication of image, audio and text that must accomplish soft real time deadlines. Multimedia services are also the basis of prominent businesses. A mobile device (ultra-small-mobile-computer) allows its user to communicate multimedia information in any place and time. These devices currently represent the perfect vehicle for the convergence between Telecommunication and Computer Communication. This convergence leads to new rich multimedia interfaces for services like Videoconference, VoIP, Instant Messaging and Gaming. It is easy to recognize the need for more research in this scenario. Therefore, there exists a need for an edited collection of articles in this area.
Objective of the Book
This book will aim to provide new insights in this area of research to young and experimented researchers as well as technical company's members. We want to collect tutorials, surveys, case descriptions and original contributions that address up-to-date research findings and business success cases in multimedia services and streaming for mobile devices. Another objective is to provide scholars and practitioners involved in this area with the most updated reference on a wide range of related topics.
The target audience of this book would be those interested in various aspects of multimedia services and streaming for mobile devices. This book is meant to be accessible to audiences including researchers, developers, engineers, and innovators working in multimedia services or mobile devices. The largest audience will be the academics, industry professionals and researchers who aspire to learn the recent progress and future trends of multimedia services and streaming for mobile devices. This book can also serve as a solid advanced-level supplement to media processing and communications courses for senior undergraduates and postgraduates.
