Dec 3 and Dec 4: 9.00 - 12.00, 13.30 - 16.30 in TM107.

Dec 5: 08.00 - 11.00, 12.00 - 15.00 ( or earlier) in TM107.

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.
