This insightful text presents a guide to video distribution networks (VDNs), providing illuminating perspectives on reducing power consumption in IP-based video networks from an authoritative selection of experts in the field. A particular focus is provided on aspects of architectures, models, Internet protocol television (IPTV), over-the-top (OTT) video content, video on demand (VoD) encoding and decoding, mobile terminals, wireless multimedia sensor networks (WMSNs), software defined networking (SDN), and techno-economic issues. Topics and features: reviews the fundamentals of video over IP distribution systems, and the trade-offs between network/service performance and energy efficiency in VDNs; describes the characterization of the main elements in a video distribution chain, and techniques to decrease energy consumption in software-based VoD encoding; introduces an approach to reduce power consumption in mobile terminals during video playback, and in data center networks using the SDN paradigm; discusses the strengths and limitations of different methods for measuring the energy consumption of mobile devices; proposes optimization methods to improve the energy efficiency of WMSNs, and a routing algorithm that reduces energy consumption while maintaining the bandwidth; presents an economic analysis of the savings yielded by approaches to minimize energy consumption of IPTV and OTT video content services. The broad coverage and practical insights offered in this timely volume will be of great value to all researchers, practitioners and students involved with computer and telecommunication systems.​

You will never look at your cell phone, TV, or computer the same way after reading this book. Greening the Media not only reveals the dirty secrets that hide inside our favorite electronic devices; it also takes apart the myths that have pushed these gadgets to the center of our lives. Marshaling an astounding array of economic, environmental, and historical facts, Maxwell and Miller debunk the idea that information and communication technologies (ICT) are clean and ecologically benign. The authors show how the physical reality of making, consuming, and discarding them is rife with toxic ingredients, poisonous working conditions, and hazardous waste. But all is not lost. As the title suggests, Maxwell and Miller dwell critically on these environmental problems in order to think creatively about ways to solve them. They enlist a range of potential allies in this effort to foster greener media--from green consumers to green citizens, with stops along the way to hear from exploited workers, celebrities, and assorted bureaucrats. Ultimately, Greening the Media rethinks the status of print and screen technologies, opening new lines of historical and social analysis of ICT, consumer electronics, and media production.
