FEKT-MMUMAcad. year: 2017/2018
The course focuses in detail on the description of modern compression algorithms and methods used in image and video processing, description of security of multimedia content by means of watermarking techniques, description of principles of multimedia data transmission in IP networks, and description of the principles of indexing and retrieval in large multimedia databases.
Learning outcomes of the course unit
The students will acquire the knowledge of advanced methods of multimedia digital signal processing and methods of their delivery in heterogenous network environments, video signal compression, image transforms and multimedia databases.
Knowledge on the Bachelor degree level is required.
