Need to complete an assignment for credits.
The course is designed to provide an overview of the fundamental principles of image and video
compression algorithms primarily focusing on the state-of-the-art video coding standard High
Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC). The course will present the underlying theories and signal
processing techniques required for video coding in an accessible manner together with practical
exercises involving state-of-the-art video encoding and streaming tools. The topics include information
theory, quantization, transform coding, variable length coding, prediction models, post
processing and filtering, HEVC coding tools and features and MPEG-DASH based video
streaming with the inclusion of laboratory demonstrations.
In addition, the course is intended to provide an overview of the state-of-the-art High Dynamic
Range (HDR) video compression and distribution techniques, concepts of Hybrid
broadcast/broadband TV (HbbTV) services, and challenges in interactive and personalized
media content distribution.
