Digital Multimedia Perception and Design provides a well-rounded synopsis of the state-of-the-art technologies in perceptual-based multimedia design. It is the only such book on the market, uniting cutting-edge research by some of the top people in the field and filling a gap in the existing multimedia design literature.

Digital Multimedia Perception and Design highlights how perceptual requirements can be incorporated in the design, development and transmission of multimedia, providing readers with a rich body of research and work done in this exciting area. This book aids all those interested in building true end-to-end multimedia information systems, and is useful to researchers, multimedia designers, and content and infrastructure providers.

Reviews and Testimonials

The authors are concerned with the wider forms of multimedia representation and with how users interpret these through the human/computer interface. As such, the studies are of interest to educators.
