Item description for 3d Online Multimedia and Games: Processing, Visualization and Transmission by Irene Cheng, Guido M Cortelazzo, Anup Basu & Satish K Tripathi...
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.

many aspects of 3D modelling Dec 10, 2009
The VRML of the 90s has now come to this level of capability. The chapters describe various aspects of visualisation of 3D models, where often the data is transmitted from a remote machine to your computer. This might be a standard client server approach.
An important idea is to minimise the data transmitted; so various compression algorithms are explained, like JPEG and its JPEG2000 variant. To reduce bandwidth, one idea is not to transmit an entire 3D model, but only the views requested by the client.
Applications of the 3D modelling are diverse. Not just the obvious video gaming, but also "serious" tasks in medicine, product prototyping and scientific visualisation.
Some minimal matrix algebra is assumed of the reader, as several chapters quickly summarise some maths ideas.
