Book: Signal Processing for Telecommunications and Multimedia (Multimedia Systems and Applications)
The unprecedented growth in the range of multimedia services offeredthese days by modern telecommunication systems has been made possibleonly because of the advancements in signal processing technologies andalgorithms. In the area of telecommunications, application of signalprocessing allows for new generations of systems to achieve performanceclose to theoretical limits, while in the area of multimedia, signal processingthe underlying technology making possible realization of such applicationsthat not so long ago were considered just a science fiction or were not evendreamed about. We all learnt to adopt those achievements very quickly, butoften the research enabling their introduction takes many years and a lot ofefforts. This book presents a group of invited contributions, some of whichhave been based on the papers presented at the International Symposiumon DSP for Communication Systems held in Coolangatta on the Gold Coast,Australia, in December 2003.
