Transactions on Data Hiding and Multimedia Security II

Transactions on Data Hiding and Multimedia Security II

Since the mid 1990s, data hiding has been proposed as an enabling technology for securing multimedia communication, and is now used in various applications including broadcast monitoring, movie fingerprinting, steganography, video indexing and retrieval, and image authentication. Data hiding and cryptographic techniques are often combined to complement each other, thus triggering the development of a new research field of multimedia security. Besides, two related disciplines, steganalysis and data forensics, are increasingly attracting researchers and becoming another new research field of multimedia security. This journal, LNCS Transactions on Data Hiding and Multimedia Security, aims to be a forum for all researchers in these emerging fields, publishing both original and archival research results. nitroflare

Multimedia Signals and Systems Basic and Advanced

Multimedia Signals and Systems Basic and Advanced

This book is designed for students, professionals and researchers in the field of multimedia and related fields with a need to learn the basics of multimedia systems and signal processing. Emphasis is given to the analysis and processing of multimedia signals (audio, images, and video). Detailed insight into the most relevant mathematical apparatus and transformations used in multimedia signal processing is given. A unique relationship between different transformations is also included, opening new perspectives for defining novel transforms in specific applications. Special attention is dedicated to the compressive sensing area, which has a great potential to contribute to further improvement of modern multimedia systems. In addition to the theoretical concepts, various standard and more recently accepted algorithms for the reconstruction of different types of signals are considered. Additional information and details are also provided to enable a comprehensive analysis of audio and video compression algorithms. Finally, the book connects these principles to other important elements of multimedia systems, such as the analysis of optical media, digital watermarking, and telemedicine.

Intelligent Multimedia Communication Techniques and Applications

Intelligent Multimedia Communication Techniques and Applications

Multimedia data are used more and more widely in human being's life, e.g., videoconferencing, visual telephone, IPTV, etc. Nearly most of the applications need multimedia transmission techniques that send multimedia data from one side to another side and keep the properties of efficiency, robustness and security. Here, the efficiency denotes the time cost of transmission operations, the robustness denotes the ability to survive transmission errors or noises, and the security denotes the protection of the transmitted media content.

Multimedia Communication Technology RepresentationTransmission and Identification of Multimedia Signals Signals and Communication Technology

Review From the reviews: "This is the first book which develops in a unitary and modern style the representation, transmission and identification of multimedia signals. … The book has plenty of merits amongst which we quote: excellent and suggestive illustrations; up-to-date references; inclusion of a recent standard … inclusion of wavelet applications in efficient video coding. All this makes the book good for study and reference in the field of multimedia signals and systems and should be of interest to all workers and developers in the area." (Dumitru Stanomir, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1060, 2005) "This is an excellent textbook of multimedia signal processing, also dealing with the optimisation of multimedia communication systems. … Numerous practical examples are given for algorithms and design of multimedia signal compression and transmission systems, for systems performing content analysis and indexing of multimedia signals. Principles behind multimedia coding and indexing standards … are explained in detail, including the most recent developments like the new Advanced Video Coding standard and Motion-Compensated Interframe Wavelet Coding. Numerous figures and examples illustrate the concepts." (COMTEC, Issue 3, 2004)
