This review is from: Jpeg2000 Image Compression Fundamentals, Standards and Practice (The Springer International Series in Engineering and Computer Science) (Hardcover)
This book plus CD-ROM package is a precise reference for professional engineers and academic researchers in the fields of communication, image processing, signal processing, information theory, and multimedia. It has specific applications for those involved in the development of software and hardware solutions for multimedia, Internet, and medical imaging applications and for those pursuing research in image and video compression. This book is primarily divided into four parts for the sake of simplicity. Part I presents a nice overview on image compression, and Part II describes the JPEG2000 standard in detail. Part III is devoted to the implementation and exploitation of the standard, and contains guidelines, suggestions, and analyses for both software and hardware oriented applications. Part IV describes other key image compression standards. The CD-ROM contains documentation, binaries, and source code to the Kakadu software tools. The book can be used as a primary text for courses in image compression and multi-media compression. This is a very well written, comprehensive and useful documentation for the practicing engineers and researchers alike.
