The course explains the principles behind modern techniques for communicating images and sound. Having fulfilled the course, the student has learned to analyze the performance of predictive and transform-based methods and is also able to explain the design criterias behind methods such as JPEG, MPEG for images and MP3, AAC for audio.

Prerequisites: (valid for students admitted to programmes within which the course is offered)
Signal Theory, Linear Algebra. Fourier transforms

Note: Admission requirements for non-programme students usually also include admission requirements for the programme and threshhold requirements for progression within the programme, or corresponding.

Supplementary courses:
Project courses or research-oriented courses in the areas of media communication, mobil communication, medical image systems. The course is also suitable as a prerequisite for Master thesis studies in these fields.

The course consists of lectures, tutorials, and laborations.

Course contents:
Statistical signal models and Entropy. Lossless coding. Performance bounds when coding analogue signals. Sampling and quantisation. PCM, predictive coding, transform coding, wavelet coding. LPC, CELP and model-based coding. Standardised methods for pictures and sound (JPEG, MPEG, MP3, AAC). Video distribution over networks.
