Lecture type(s) Practical Course

Complementary to the module Fundamentals of Multimedia Technology, this accompanying practical course serves to deepen the contents taught. In groups of max. three participants, the topics are put into practice through appropriate tasks. At the beginning there is an introduction to different image formats, their creation, conversion and specific properties. This is followed by the specific processing of image data using suitable tools. Another focus is on audio and video formats, their properties and creation using selected formats as examples. Comprehensive basic knowledge about the corresponding techniques and procedures, e.g. DCT and wavelets, is imparted. The implementation of this basic knowledge in multimedia applications is carried out using the example of BD mastering, multimedia applications on mobile devices, video conferencing and the handling of multimedia databases and media servers with a focus on suitable methods of content analysis and description.


Students will be able to practically apply the concepts from the module "Fundamentals of Multimedia Technology". They can specifically process multimedia data, such as audio/video data, and create query algorithms. They can evaluate different algorithmic strategies and apply them appropriately to the situation. Students know the advantages and disadvantages of DCT and wavelet transforms and can apply them to concrete examples.
