The "get started" developer's guide to MPEG-4, the future of Internet and Web multimedia!

MPEG-4 will transform Internet- and Web-based multimedia by enabling breakthrough audio, video, 2D, and 3D capabilities. This book is for every developer and technical decision-maker. In MPEG-4 Jump-Start, two leaders of the Internet multimedia community introduce the MPEG-4 standard: its key concepts, capabilities, applications, requirements, and limitations. Aaron E. Walsh and Mikael Bourges-Sevenier cover what you need to know to start developing MPEG-4 players and content today, including:

  • How MPEG-4 builds on the success of the MPEG standards that enabled CDs, DVDs, and MP3
  • MPEG-4's underlying technical capabilities and requirements
  • 2D/3D scene composition and the MPEG-4 Binary Format for Scenes (BIFS)
  • MPEG-4 techniques for facial and body animation
  • New compression methods for 3D meshes
