Signal Processing for Image Enhancement and Multimedia Processing
Traditionally,signalprocessingtechniqueslayatthefoundationofmultimedia data processing and analysis. In the past few years, a new wave of advanced signal-processing techniques has delivered exciting results, increasing systems capabilities of e?ciently exchanging image data and extracting useful kno- edge from them. Signal Processing for Image Enhancement and Multimedia Processing is an edited volume, written by well-recognized international - searchers with extended chapter style versions of the best papers presented at the SITIS 2006 International Conference. This book presents the state-of-the-art and recent research results on the application of advanced signal processing techniques for improving the value of image and video data. It also discusses feature-based techniques for deep, feature-oriented analysis of images and new results on video coding on ti- honored topic of securing image information. Signal Processing for Image - hancement and Multimedia Processing is designed for a professional audience composedofpractitionersandresearchersinindustry.Thisvolumeisalsosu- able as a reference or secondary text for advanced-level students in computer science and engineering. The chapters included in this book are a selection of papers presented at the Signal and Image Technologies track of the international SITIS 2006 c- ference. The authors were asked to revise and extend their contributions to take into account the many challenges and remarks discussed at the conf- ence. A large number of high quality papers were submitted to SITIS 2006, demonstrating the growing interest of the research community for image and multimedia processing.
