Admission information


In the past decade there have been a variety of interesting developments in multimedia representation and communications. It has become very clear that all aspects of media have and will become more and more digital. As a key development with input from many different disciplines, video coding lies at the core of multimedia signal processing. The laboratory provides the participants with a detailed overview of the theoretical background and the implementation of a video coding system. From the ninth week of the course on, each group of students (two people) can choose from divers components to develop one unique video coding/decoding system. In the end of the course all codecs will be presented by the participants and compared with respect to compression ratio, image quality, execution speed, memory consumption and program size.
