Course description

Introduction: multimedia application areas. Basics of human visual and audio perceptions from the aspect of video and audio compression effects. Presentation of a picture on a computer; colour systems. Digital image formats. Compression methods: entropy coding (Runlength, Huffman, Arithmetic, LZW), predictive coding, transformational coding (FFT, DCT, DWT). Image compression standards: JPEG and JPEG2000. Video digitisation, video compression standards: MPEG-2, MPEG-4 Visual, H.261, H.263, H.264, H.265, SVC. Characteristics and modelling of a speech signal. Algorithms and standards for speech compression. Digitalisation of audio signals, audio encoding. MPEG-7 and MPEG-21 standards. Packet audio and video transmission. Multimedia transmission over broadband networks. Multimedia in mobile communications. Communication protocols for multimedia, quality of services.

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. analyse and evaluate compression methods for still images, video and audio and apply one or more methods for lossless compression

2. analyse human video system characteristics as well as algorithms for video coding

3. compare and evaluate results of coding according to JPEG and JPEG2000, MPEG-2, MPEG-4 Visual, H.261, H.263 and H.264 standard

4. develop algorithms for still image and video processing for different applications

5. explain characteristics of a speech signal as well as a human audio system, analyse and evaluate basic algorithms for speech and audio coding

6. elect and apply the appropriate encoders, protocols and parameters for multimedia transmission in different applications
