Dr. Yo-Sung Ho received the B.S. and M.S. degrees in electronic engineering from Seoul National University, Seoul, Korea, in 1981 and 1983, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical and computer engineering from the University of California, Santa Barbara, in 1990. He joined ETRI (Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute), Daejon, Korea, in 1983. From 1990 to 1993, he was with North America Philips Laboratories, Briarcliff Manor, New York, where he was involved in the development of the Advanced Digital High-Definition Television (AD-HDTV) system. In 1993, he rejoined the technical staff of ETRI and was involved in the development of the Korean DBS Digital Television and High-Definition Television systems. Since 1995, he has been with Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology (GIST), where he is currently Professor of School of Information and Communications. Since August 2003, he has been the Director of Realistic Broadcasting Research Center at GIST in Korea. He has also been serving as an Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems Video Technology (T-CSVT) and IEEE Transactions on Multimedia (T-MM). His research interests include Digital Image and Video Coding, Image Analysis and Image Restoration, Three-dimensional Image Modeling and Representation, Advanced Source Coding Techniques, Three-dimensional Television (3DTV) and Realistic Broadcasting Technologies.

This book aims to bring together recent advances and applications of video coding. All chapters can be useful for researchers, engineers, graduate and postgraduate students, experts in this area, and hopefully also for people who are generally interested in video coding. The book includes nine carefully selected chapters. The chapters deal with advanced compression techniques for multimedia applications, concerning recent video coding standards, high efficiency video coding (HEVC), multiple description coding, region of interest (ROI) coding, shape compensation, error resilient algorithms for H.264/AVC, wavelet-based coding, facial video coding, and hardware implementations. This book provides several useful ideas for your own research and helps to bridge the gap between the basic video coding techniques and practical multimedia applications. We hope this book is enjoyable to read and will further contribute to video coding.
