Even though video compression has become a mature field, a lot of research is still ongoing. Indeed, as the quality of the compressed video for a given size or bit rate increases, so does users’ level of expectations and their intolerance to artefacts. The development of compression technology has enabled number of applications; key applications in television broadcast field. Compression technology is the basis for digital television. The “Video Compression” book was written for scientists and development engineers. The aim of the book is to showcase the state of the art in the wider field of compression beyond encoder centric approach and to appreciate the need for video quality assurance. It covers compressive video coding, distributed video coding, motion estimation and video quality.
