The focus of this module is on the application areas of multimedia technology. One focus is on content analysis of multimedia data. At the beginning, basic algorithms for image enhancement and image analysis are introduced. This is followed by techniques for audio and video analysis. In audio analysis, techniques for speech and music recognition are covered, while video analysis focuses on techniques for cut detection. A second focus is on localization, navigation, and mobile assistance. Finally, suitable description methods for the creation and programming of multimedia data (authoring systems) are presented, covering aspects of human/machine interaction, usability, and subjective perception and aesthetics.


The students know advanced techniques from the field of multimedia media, especially against the background of scientific questions (image enhancement, content analysis of multimedia content, speech and gesture recognition). They understand the functionalities and possibilities of these technologies, are able to apply them in science and practice and can develop their own multimedia applications.
