Video Over Wireless

by: Benny Bing


Abstract: This practical volume offers expert guidance on delivering high-quality video communications over wireless networks. Wireless access has become the dominant medium for network connectivity due to the proliferation of smartphones and tablets. Because of the size and power limitations of these personal devices, as well as data caps imposed by cellular operators, there are significant constraints on the delivery of high-quality video content. This guide explains emerging technologies that will help overcome these challenges—all presented in a clear and concise format. Video Over Wireless offers comprehensive coverage of popular adaptive bit rate streaming methods from Apple and Microsoft and teaches the inner workings of wireless protocols such as Wi-Fi and 4G. You will get full coverage of cutting-edge technologies, including high-bit-rate transmission for single-antenna mobile devices, non-real-time (NRT) video delivery, and error concealment. • Addresses key industry standards such as H.264, H.265, ATSC, and NRT • Offers instruction on high-bit-rate wireless design for personal devices • Based on a popular tutorial the author has presented at international engineering conferences
