A book edited by Dr. Elsa Macias and Dr. Alvaro Suarez

University of Las Palmas de G.C., Spain

To be published by IGI Global:


Multimedia services include the processing and communication of image, audio
and text that must accomplish soft real time deadlines. Multimedia services
are also the basis of prominent businesses. A mobile device
(ultra-small-mobile-computer) allows its user to communicate multimedia
information in any place and time. These devices currently represent the
perfect vehicle for the convergence between Telecommunication and Computer
Communication. This convergence leads to new rich multimedia interfaces for
services like Videoconference, VoIP, Instant Messaging and Gaming. It is
easy to recognize the need for more research in this scenario. Therefore,
there exists a need for an edited collection of articles in this area.
