- Course objectives
- Taking this lecture, student gets an overview in the area of multimedia
processing and transfer through computer networks. Basic principles of
audio and image (including video) coding and processing are presented, as well as basic methods of multimedia transmissions over using computer networks. The lecture also includes foundations of audio and video acquisition including the principles of acquisition devices.
Graduate will be able to understand and explain principles of audio and video coding.
Graduate will be also able to design a system for capture and transmission of multimedia data through a computer network.
Graduate will be also able to select appropriate coding formats for multimedia, taking into account the requested quality and properties of the computer network.
