Fundamentals of Multimedia University of Sao Paulo
Many society areas use computational applications in order to manipulate different media types, in a integrated fashion or not. The information volume generated by those applications and the need for inter-media synchronization make necessary to use coding techniques as well as standards to guarantee efficiency and interoperability. The knowledge about those techniques and standards are essential for graduated students develop research in the Multimedia area.
The goal of this course is to present multimedia fundamentals, approaching important issues regarding different media types and coding methods. It is also in the scope to analyze features and limitations of available tools, applications and systems. After the course we expect the student to be capable to discuss recent related research topics.
The final grade will be obtained calculating a weighted average among exams, projects and seminars.
Mutimedia definition. Introduction to digitization. Compression of different media types. Basic compression techniques. Spatial and temporal coding.Standards. Multimedia segmentation and adaptation. Multimedia authoring.
