Introduce students to analogue and digital television systems and applications of video coding standards in digital television. Enable students to independently develop digital TV software, including the use of a television receiver circuitry, development of middle layer software, use of digital television protocols, and download and use of data from transport stream as well as the design of the basic television application.

Course assessment

Conducting university questionnaires on teachers (student-teacher relationship, transparency of assessment criteria, motivation for teaching, teaching clarity, etc.). Conducting Faculty surveys on courses (upon passing the exam, student self-assessment of the adopted learning outcomes and student workload in relation to the number of ECTS credits allocated to activities and courses as a whole).

Overview of course assesment

Learning outcomes
Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to:

1. describe the characteristics of video signals; choose the parameters for digitizing and compressing video signals and evaluating its quality

2. analyse the application of DCT, motion estimation and compensation as well as evaluate the application of different video coding standards

3. distinguish source and channel coding methods as well as types of modulation for DVB-T and DVB-T2

4. compare different methods of content protection as well as conditional access in a digital television

5. develop software support for a digital television receiver, including protocol usage, as well as download and use of data from the transport stream

6. design basic TV applications
