Introduction to Imaging and Multimedia


Introduces fundamental techniques and concepts used in computational imaging and multimedia.  Upon completion, a successful student will be able to design and implement programs that deal with image, video, and audio data.

- A grade below a "C" in a prerequisite course will not satisfy that prerequisite requirement.

Introduction to multimedia
Basics of image formation
Image computing: binary image analysis
Multimedia compression basics
Video processing
Audio processing
Multimedia applications

Expected Work: 

Homework/programming assignments and small projects

Midterm and Final
Learning Goals: 
Computer Science majors ...
  • will be prepared to contribute to a rapidly changing field by acquiring a thorough grounding in the core principles and foundations of computer science (e.g., techniques of program design, creation, and testing; key aspects of computer hardware; algorithmic principles).
  • will acquire a deeper understanding on (elective) topics of more specialized interest, and be able to critically review, assess, and communicate current developments in the field.
  • will be prepared for the next step in their careers, for example, by having done a research project (for those headed to graduate school), a programming project (for those going into the software industry), or some sort of business plan (for those going into startups).
