Abstract – In this paper is about need of wireless multimedia sensor network and methods efficient energy transmission. Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks (WMSNs) has emerged and shifted the total focus from the typical scalar wireless sensor networks to multimedia networks. The handful availability of low-cost hardware such as CMOS cameras, recorders and microphones has forced the development of Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks (WMSNs) are able to deliver the contents in high range and inexpensive, i.e., networks are wirelessly interconnected devices that are able to easy retrieve multimedia content such as audio and video streams (AV), images and scalar sensor data collected from the environment. Where the multimedia network are divided into clusters with several links to increase the easy manageability of the network and also to reduction the energy dissipation at each node. For short range transmission is efficient but efficiency reduces in transmission range increases which means that lose in information. The paper will give the readers a clear view of at all aspects of this research to meet the current challenges and future trends. In Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks (WMSNs), the mechanisms are not enough to provide an acceptable image quality thus a suitable reliable transport protocols should be adapted to these requirements are needed. Energy conservation is essential in any wireless networks which includes wireless sensor networks (WSNs) because of limited energy. The use of multiple transmitters to form an array of antenna to transmit multimedia contents. The electromagnetic waves from these antennas can create constructive interferences at the receiver which helps in increase the transmission distance over a large range. Each and every transmitting antenna can be of low power consumption.
