2020 Fall: Video Communication 视频通信

Written by  |  05/09/2020 - 09/00

Course Descrption:

 This course introduces fundamentals of image and video processing, including color image capture and representation; image/video compression; video networking; selected advanced image/video processing and communication techniques. Students will learn to implement selected algorithms in Python (Matlab). A term project will be required.  Relevant publications will be provided as reference.  Through this course, students would have to gain the classical knowledge and cutting-edge techniques.
