Multimedia Over Networks

7 May 2018 - 11 May 2018

The aim of the module is to give the students grounding in techniques for 2D/3D video processing (video representation, compression basics, error robustness, adaptation and scalable video coding), spatial audio and speech signal processing required for efficient communication systems and multimedia networking. On completion of this module students should be able to explain the fundamental concepts in multimedia (video, audio and speech) signal processing, from acquisition and processing to transmission and rendering. They will also be able to formulate the basic building blocks of a coder (video, speech or audio), and qualitatively analyse the performance of a coder given a set of conditions. They will compare to each other the performances and complexities of different multimedia transmission protocols as well as analyse the impact of errors in video communications and propose basic error resiliency schemes based on standard applications.
