Digital audiovisual technology has been growing steadily in the last decade. New applications such as digital photography, mp3, video conferencing, and video streaming on the web continuously push the boundaries of communication and computer systems. A problem, however, is that digital audio, image and video data rates are very large, especially in interactive or immersive environments. Data rates of this magnitude consume a lot of the bandwidth, storage and computing resources. Hence, digital audiovisual compression techniques have played an important role in the world of telecommunications and multimedia systems where the above factors are still valuable commodities. In this chapter, we introduce some popular digital audiovisual standards and techniques which have been used for multimedia services in intelligent environments.
