Book Description :

Communicating Pictures starts with a unique historical perspective of the role of images in communications and then builds on this to explain the applications and requirements of a modern video coding system. It draws on the author's extensive academic and professional experience of signal processing and video coding to deliver a text that is algorithmically rigorous, yet accessible, relevant to modern standards, and practical. It offers a thorough grounding in visual perception, and demonstrates how modern image and video compression methods can be designed in order to meet the rate-quality performance levels demanded by today's applications, networks and users. With this book you will learn: Practical issues when implementing a codec, such as picture boundary extension and complexity reduction, with particular emphasis on efficient algorithms for transforms, motion estimators and error resilience Conflicts between conventional video compression, based on variable length coding and spatiotemporal prediction, and the requirements for error resilient transmission How to assess the quality of coded images and video content, both through subjective trials and by using perceptually optimised objective metrics Features, operation and performance of the state-of-the-art High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) standard Covers the basics of video communications and includes a strong grounding in how we perceive images and video, and how we can exploit redundancy to reduce bitrate and improve rate distortion performance Gives deep insight into the pitfalls associated with the transmission of real-time video over networks (wireless and fixed) Uses the state-of- the-art video coding standard (H.264/AVC) as a basis for algorithm development in the context of block based compression Insight into future video coding standards such as the new ISO/ITU High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) initiative, which extends and generalizes the H.264/AVC approach

Book Description :

This book explores the various ways social activists use media and communication strategies, including mass media, face-to-face/interpersonal communication, the telephone, group communication, events, papers or literature, and computer-mediated or online communication. Focusing on examples of advocacy against the death penalty, for universal health insurance, and for increased environmental awareness, the author looks at which communication methods are most successful in each case and draws theory-based conclusions for effective communication strategies for future activists--especially at the local level.

External Communication in Social Media During Asymmetric Conflicts

External Communication in Social Media During Asymmetric Conflicts Book
Author : Bernd Hirschberger
Publisher : transcript Verlag
Release : 2021-07-31
ISBN : 383945509X
Language : En, Es, Fr & De

Book Description :

Social media increasingly shapes the way in which we perceive conflicts and conflict parties abroad. Conflict parties, therefore, have started using social media strategically to influence public opinion abroad. This book explores the phenomenon by examining, (1) which strategies of external communication conflict parties use during asymmetric conflicts and (2) what shapes the selection of these communication strategies. In a comprehensive case study of the conflict in Israel and Palestine, Bernd Hirschberger shows that the selection of strategies of external communication is shaped by the (asymmetric) conflict structure.

Book Description :

This book studies the relationship between automata and monadic second-order logic, focusing on classes of automata that describe the concurrent behavior of distributed systems. It provides a unifying theory of communicating automata and their logical properties. Based on Hanf's Theorem and Thomas's graph acceptors, it develops a result that allows characterization of many popular models of distributed computation in terms of the existential fragment of monadic second-order logic.

Book Description :

Reviewing the images and meanings of the mass-mediated world, Gabriel Weimann examines the symbolic environment, where reality and fiction are almost inseparable. Through discussion of mass-mediated images of people, cultures, war, love, sex, death, community, and identity, he demonstrates that there is often a large gap between reality and the reconstruction of "realities" as communicated by the mass media.

Communicating Marginalized Masculinities

Language : En, Es, Fr & De

GET BOOK

Book Description :

For years, research concerning masculinities has explored the way that men have dominated, exploited, and dismantled societies, asking how we might make sense of marginalized masculinities in the context of male privilege. This volume asks not only how terms such as men and masculinity are socially defined and culturally instantiated, but also how the media has constructed notions of masculinity that have kept minority masculinities on the margins. Essays explore marginalized masculinities as communicated through film, television, and new media, visiting representations and marginalized identity politics while also discussing the dangers and pitfalls of a media pedagogy that has taught audiences to ignore, sidestep, and stereotype marginalized group realities. While dominant portrayals of masculine versus feminine characters pervade numerous television and film examples, this collection examines heterosexual and queer, military and civilian, as well as Black, Japanese, Indian, White, and Latino masculinities, offering a variance in masculinities and confronting male privilege as represented on screen, appealing to a range of disciplines and a wide scope of readers.

Book Description :

From Aesop's fables to Christ's parables to the Grimm Brother's fairytales, storytelling has been a valuable teaching tool throughout history. In this book, Pamela Brooke shows how storytelling can effectively be used to affect change and educate individuals, particularly in developing countries, through various radio formats, including short spots, plays, soap operas, and novellas. Using real-life examples such as the use of radio drama in malaria prevention in Africa, she discusses the ins and outs of developing educational radio programs, including offering advice on where to look for talented actors, what you should consider in using sound effects, and how to organize the recording session. Regardless of the message, whether it is to affect change in personal behavior or a call for social reform, telling a story with vivid characters and a mesmerizing plot is the most effective way to penetrate the audience's consciousness. Contents: When the Facts are Not Enough; How We Learn From Stories; How to Choose a Radio Format and Dramatic Style; How to Create a Radio Drama Storyline; How to Write a Radio Drama Script; How to Bring a Script to Life in the Studio; References; Index.

Book Description :

This book examines the dialectic between fictional death as depicted in the media and real death as it is experienced in a hospital setting. Using a Terror Management theoretical lens, Davis and Crane explore the intersections of life and death, experience and fiction, to understand the relationship between them. The authors use complementary perspectives to examine what it means when we speak and think of death as it is conceived in cultural media and as it is constructed by and circulates between patients, health professionals, and supportive family members and friends. Layering analysis with evocative narrative and an intimate tone, with characters, plot, and action that reflect the voices and experiences of all project participants, including the authors’ own, Davis and Crane reflect on what it means to pass away. Their medical humanities approach bridges health communication, cultural studies, and the arts to inform medical ethics and care.
