Intended learning outcomes

The course should give knowledge about methods used for data compression and how these methods are applied to audio, image and video signals. After taking the course, the student is expected to be able to

  • Make random models for sources
  • Analyze random source models
  • Understand source coding methods such as huffman coding and arithmetic coding.
  • Understand quantization
  • Understand linear predictive coding
  • Understand transform coding.
  • Understand subband coding.
  • Calculate coding performance for different coding methods, given random models for the sources
  • Know how different coding methods are used for compression of still images, video and audio data.
  • Know what methods are used in different compression standards (GIF, PNG, JPEG, MPEG, mp3, AAC, speech kodning).

Teaching and working methods

The course consists of lectures, lessons and computer lab work. All lectures are available as prerecorded videos.
