Image and video Compression and Processing

T Technical Teaching


  • This course presents progressive coverage of Image and Video Compression and Processing.




  • Basic Processing Tools : Filtering, Histogram, Edge Detection and Segmentation, Motion estimation, Hough transform, mathematical morphology, colours.
  • Compression : Because multimedia data (in particular image and video) require efficient compression techniques in order to be stored and delivered, image and video compression is a crucial element of an effective communication system.
  • Still Images : Fax and JBIG included techniques : Huffmann, RLC GIF and JPEG included techniques : LZW and DPCM, DCT, SQ
  • Video H.261 and H.263 included techniques : Block Matching MPEG-1, MPEG-2 and MPEG-4
  • Emerging Techniques : Vector Quantization (DVI) Introduction to Fractal Coding Introduction to Subband Coding and Wavelets (JPEG 2000) Implementations, applications and uses of compression systems. Introduction to multimedia signal processing on compressed image data.
