Ken Santucci, a professor at George Mason University’s Volgenau School of Engineering, teaches Concepts of Multimedia Processing and Transmission, a class so popular, that it has a waiting list each semester. When choosing a textbook for the class, Santucci chose Jan Ozer’s new book, Producing Streaming Video for Multiple Screen Delivery.

“The choice was simple,” Santucci commented. “It’s the only streaming-related book published in 2013. In this fast-moving technology space, my students need a book that’s current.”

Beyond the publication date, Santucci also noted that the book’s content was ideal for the course curriculum, where students develop presentations using mobile devices and displays. “Two years ago, computer playback was sufficient. Now potential employers need to reach computers, mobile devices and set top boxes, so we needed a text book that could help our students learn how to do that.” Santucci continued, “this is the third book written by Ozer that I’ve used in my classes. Like the other two, this one is comprehensive, readable and most importantly, accurate.”

Producing Streaming Video for Multiple Screen Delivery was published on April 2, 2013. For more information, please visit bit.ly/Ozer_multi. For additional information, or to request a review copy, please contact jozer@mindspring.com.
