The MPEG Handbook
The MPEG Handbook
A complete, professional 'bible' on all aspects of audio and video compression using MPEG technology, including the MPEG-4 standard and, in this second edition, H-264. The clarity of explanation and depth of technical detail combine to make this book an essential and definitive reference work.
THE MPEG HANDBOOK is both a theoretical and practical treatment of the subject. Fundamental knowledge is provided alongside practical guidance on how to avoid pitfalls and poor quality. The often-neglected issues of reconstructing the signal timebase at the decoder and of synchronizing the signals in a multiplex are treated fully here.
Previously titled MPEG-2, the book is frequently revised to cover the latest applications of the technology.
"As with all John Watkinson books, the present one is a classic example of an excellent engineering textbook. It deserves to be on the bookshelf of every broadcaster involved in new coding technologies." - EBU Technical Review
Reviews of the Previous Edition:
"No book can claim to be a definitive book on a given technology. Technologies develop too fast. This book, however, deserves to be acclaimed as the definitive book on general MPEG aspects." The EBU Technical Review
