Format: Hardcover
Digital Compression for Multimedia by Jerry D. Gibson, et al presents data compression types and techniques in eleven chapters. Each chapter describes in a simple way about different types of coding, including lossy and lossless. The material covered in this book ranges from the classical Huffman Coding to the most recent MPEG standards. It covers JPEG, multimedia/video conferencing, and MPEG. This book covers the basic principles and standards and their applications in great detail. Also presents mathematical foundation and algorithmic details in appendices/special sections. However, some mathematical background is required to understand the mathematical equations or the proofs. It includes a wealth of figures and tables as well as a list of acronyms with definitions. It's very easy to understand and follow the compression algorithms. This is a very informative book and can be used as a textbook for advanced undergraduate/graduate courses.
This book was very useful to me in my research. My research is in the area of data compression and its applications to communication networks. The title of my dissertation is Data Compression Techniques in Modern Communication Networks.

The authors for this book , i.e., Digital Compression for Multimedia : Principles & Standards by Jerry Gibson, et al cover the basic principles of data compression, namely, lossless coding, entropy reduction, redundancy removal, and quantization. They discuss current standards for speech, audio, video, image, fax, and file compression, and describe standards-compliant design alternatives, as well as some noncompliant designs.

A book that is what it says it is. This is mostly a compilation of standards, in the format of a reference book. I was looking for specific implementation details for MPEG, and this was not the book for me. Still, I am keeping it as a reference and anyone looking for the same will not be disappointed.
