Course Description:
This course introduces the basic theory and various techniques used in multimedia compression. It covers both lossless and lossy coding but with a higher percentage on the latter. We emphasize on the funda-mental principles of the compression techniques used for different types of data such as speech, audio, image and video. Also covered briefly are popular compression standards such as JPEG and MPEG.
