Course description

For years, multimedia has been touching most aspects of Computer Science and Engineering fields and forms an important component of image processing, computer vision, computer network, real-time systems, retrieval, and so on. Therefore, comprehensive knowledge in multimedia is rapidly becoming a necessity, emphasizing the importance of this course. There are three major parts covered in this class: Multimedia data representation, multimedia data compression, multiple view geometry applications, multimedia communications, and networking, etc. As the outcomes of this course, students will be facilitated a strong knowledge foundation supporting them in doing research in numerous hot topics of multimedia technologies (e.g., image and video processing, video streaming networking, etc.)
Purpose of class

Evaluation method and criteria
Midterm exam (30%) and Final Exam (70%) are the criteria of the grade. More than 60% of the total score is needed for getting the course credit.
Students are marked absent from the class if they are late regardless of the delay time.
If students are absent from more than one third of the total number of classes, the credit of this course cannot be given to them.
Even though students are absent from the class whatever the reason, e.g. sickness, delay of public transportation systems, forgetting to bring the student ID card, it is counted as absence.
