Summary and Info
Online applications have been gaining wide acceptance among the general public. Companies like Amazon, Google, Yahoo! and NetFlicks have been doing extremely well over the last few years largely because of people becoming more comfortable and trusting of the Internet. The increasing acceptance of online products makes it increasingly important to address some of the scientific techniques involved in developing efficient 3D online systems. The topics discussed in this book broadly cover four categories: networking issues in online multimedia; joint texture-mesh simplification and view independent transmission; view dependent transmission and server-side rendering; content and background creation; and creating simple online games. Contents: Adaptive Bandwidth Monitoring for QoS Based Retrievel (A Basu et al.); Wireless Protocols (A Khan); Overview of 3D Coding and Simplification (I Cheng & L Ying); Scale-Space Filtering and LOD -- The TexMesh Model (I Cheng); Adaptive Online Transmission of Photo-Realistic Textured Mesh (I Cheng); Perceptual Issues in a 3D TexMesh Model (I Cheng); Quality Metric for Approximating Subjective Evaluation of 3D Objects (A Basu et al.); Perceptually Optimized 3D Transmission Over Wireless Networks (I Cheng & A Basu); Predictive Schemes for Remote Visualization of 3D Models (P Zanuttigh & G M Cortelazzo); A Rate Distortion Theoretic Approach to Remote Visualization of 3D Models (N Brusco et al.); 3D Content Creation by Passive Optical Methods (L Ballan et al.); 3D Visualization and Compression of Photorealistic Panoramic Backgrounds (P Zanuttigh et al.); A 3D Game -- Castles (G Xiao et al.); A Networked Version of Castles (D Lien et al.); A Networked Multiplayer Java3D Game -- Siege (E Benner et al.); Collaborative Online 3D Editing (I Cheng et al.).
