Exercises: 2 SWS

Time and Place: Monday at 10:00 to 11:30, CAP3 - lecture hall 1


The topic of the lecture will be the basics of human audiovisual perception and applications in coding and compression of audiovisual data.

Topics are among others:

  • Human audiovisual perception.
  • Digital signal processing for audio and video signals.
  • Compression techniques for audiovisual data such as JPEG and MPEG.

The exercises will focus on JAVA-programming. The first part will be a comprehensive JAVA course. In the second half the acquired knowledge about JAVA will be used for the programming of a simplified JPEG algorithm.
The exercises have to be done in groups of two. Using a laptop would be best so questions concerning programming can be discussed in the exercise lessons more easily.
