About this Book

A comprehensive overview and practical analysis of the ‘imaging chain’ through acquisition, processing and display

The Handbook of Digital Imaging (HDI) provides a coherent overview of imaging science, focusing on the capture, storage and display of images. The volumes are arranged thematically to provide a seamless analysis of the imaging ‘chain’ from source (image acquisition) to destination (image print/display). The coverage has a very practical orientation to provide a comprehensive source of information for practicing engineers designing and developing modern digital imaging systems. The content has been drawn from all aspects of digital imaging including optics, sensors, quality, control, colour encoding and decoding, compression, projection and display.

The Handbook of Digital Imaging is organized thematically in to three volumes for enhanced usability:

• Volume 1: Image Capture and Storage

o Image Capture and Storage

• Volume 2: Image Display and Reproduction of Image Display and Projection

o Hardcopy Technology

o Halftoning and Physical Evaluation

o Models for Halftone Reproduction

• Volume 3: Imaging System Applications

o Media Imaging

o Remote Imaging

o Medical and Forensic Imaging

• Authoritative coverage of the wide-ranging specialist topics encompassed by digital imaging
• Available both as a fully searchable, online resource, and in a print edition comprising three volumes over 1,800 pages
• Contains approximately 50, highly illustrated articles (ranging from 20-40 pages), printed in full colour throughout
• Over 50 contributors from academia and from industry across Europe, US and Asia.
• Ideal for engineers and designers in the dynamic global imaging and display industries

The Handbook will primarily target practitioners in the high-tech imaging, image processing and display industries including: photography, cinematography, mobile imaging and display, medical imaging and display, printing, copying and scanning, telecommunications, forensic science, remote sensing and surveillance.

A secondary audience will be academics at universities and research institutions worldwide engaged in research in the areas of image processing, image understanding, computational intelligence in imaging, colour science and technology, image analysis, machine vision and visualization.
