Digital video technology has become part of our everyday life. Digital cameras and camcorders, home theaters and audio/video distribution systems are commonplace. Even your cellphone can also serve as a digital camera today. This course offers the possibilty to learn more about the technology that lies at the core of this development.

In this course, skills for handling digital video and for programming video processing algorithms will be taught. Topics include video data coding/decoding, compression, and filtering. After an introductory phase with small programming assignments handed out each week, class projects with larger projects will be given out. Students will work in groups for the class projects.


Programming will be in C/C++, therefore at least a basic knowledge of C/C++ is mandatory. Students will have to pass an introductory test of their programming skills to be admitted to the course.
