Semester Electives
Subject Code AVD865
Subject Title Multimedia Processing


The course focuses on international standards related to image/video/audio formulated by ISO/IEC/ITU. Short ‐ term Fourier Transform & Continuous Wavelet Transform, CWT and its discretization, Discrete Wavelet Transforms, 2 ‐ D Wavelet Transforms, Coding Techniques in 2 ‐ D Wavelet Transforms, Emphasis will be on the family of MPEG 1/2/4 (Moving Picture Experts Group), H.26x (x = 1, 2, 3), JPEG/JPEG ‐ LS/JPEG2000 (Joint Photographic Experts Group), JBIG 1/2 (Joint Binary Image Group), H.264/MPEG ‐ 4 Part 10 AVC (Advanced Video Coding) and the emerging H.265 standard (HEVC). Other standards such as WMV ‐ 9 (Windows Media Video) of Microsoft and AVS China (Advanced Video Standard) and their similarities/differences with H.264 will also be presented, also audio coding AC3, AAC, AAC + SBR, G.72x–series, MPEG ‐ 1, 2, 4 audio. Course will be supplemented with ftp/web sites, software, standards documents, test sequences etc. Industry worldwide is very active in developing products (software/hardware) based on these standards with emphasis on the latest standard H.264. Some of these are digital TV, HDTV, HD ‐ DVD, set ‐ top ‐ box, handheld devices with multimedia capabilities, digital cameras, camcorders, electronic games, IPTV, video streaming, iPods etc. Motion Estimation : Matching Criteria, Generalised Matching, Generalised Deformation Model in Motion Estimation, Synchronization of Media Multimedia Content Representation and Retrieval, Video Content Representation, Content ‐ based Video : Motion Representation, Content ‐ based Video : Low to High ‐ level Representation, Content Retrieval Schemes
