This course provides the common ground for multimedia technologies in many different aspects. The course is structured in three building blocks: multimedia systems for capturing, processing, and storing digital media; data compression of audio, images, and videos; and communication networks with a special focus on multimedia delivery in the Internet. In addition seminar talks, pre-assigned reading, group work and workshops will accompany the lecture. Students are expected to attend class, read the pre-assigned literature, participate in discussion, and give one presentation on specific readings. In addition, students are expected to document their group work results in a written document.
