What the eye does not see, compression gets away with.

Digital Video Quality presents a comprehensive introduction to vision modeling and video quality assessment. The rapid spread of digital imaging systems poses an important new challenge: optimizing their performance with respect to the capture, display, storage and transmission of visual information. This problem has prompted the intensified study of vision models and visual quality metrics in recent years.

Maintaining an interdisciplinary approach that addresses image and video processing, physiology and psychology, this book:

Digital Video Quality is essential reading for video professionals and technical managers working in the multimedia and telecommunications industries. It also provides an invaluable resource for engineers designing or implementing video compression and transmission systems. Researchers and graduate students in the fields of image processing and communication will find this book a useful reference.

new Excerpts from a review by the IEEE Communications Magazine, Oct. 2007:
"A comprehensive answer to questions that might be raised while investigating and developing the video systems as well as evaluating them using more modern QoE methodologies."
We can truly recommend
Digital Video Quality for engineers... easy to understand... well edited."
