Learning objectives:
  To learn and understand basic methods of image processing and sound processing as 2D and 1D digital signals. To get acquainted with compression and decompression methods for image and sound data in PC environment. To learn how to exploit programmers interfaces for image and sound. To get acquainted with data formats for image and sound representation. To get acquaited with basic features of digital signal processors. To learn about raster operations in Windows API, DirectX, and OpenGL and sound interfaces of Windows API and DirectX. To get acquainted with the anticipated development of multimedia data processing.
Description:
  Definition of multimedia technology, multimedia peripheral devices, connection between signal processing and multimedia, digital signal processors and their features, "case study" of system design with digital signal processor, Windows sound, video, and raster operation API, formats for image and sound digitization, formats for image and sound encoding, image compression, video compression, sound compression, DirectX raster operations, DirectX sound, OpenGL raster operations, multimedia programming interfaces.
Knowledge and skills required for the course:
