The process of integrating multiple senses and media into computer systems accelerated recently. This has broadened the applications of multimedia from the traditional areas of information organization, presentation and learning, to the new fields of simulation and virtual reality. Applications that have benefitted from the introduction of multimedia include: training, demonstrations of products for sales or inventory, education, computer-aided design and engineering, medicine, weather and entertainment. This volume is devoted to the discussion of effective modelling of multimedia information and systems for a wide range of applications. It is perhaps the only book that devotes entirely to this imporant but much neglected topic.


Towards next generation multimedia systems; modelling multimedia systems and standards; image and video retrieval; interactive multimedia; multimedia synchronization; networked multimedia; music analysis and performance system; JPEG and model-based image coding; 3D geometric modelling; multimedia systems and applications.
