News

Dear students,


this is an information about teaching during the state of emergency in Czech Republic during the corona virus outbreak. 

  • Contact lectures are cancelled but the teaching will be online according to the standard timetable, you will get instructions for lecture access and they also will be available at this course page.
  • Regarding the computer laboratories you will get information - we will organize it "as the circumstances will allow".
  • Test will be taken as planned bude most probably remotely/electronically and you will get instructions.
  • The project defence will probably be done through a teleconference if the situation will not permit better option.
  • Regarding the exam - we hope that this will be organised "normally" in a contact form but this cannot, of course, be guaranteed now. Anyhow, you will get instructions.
  • The overview of lectures is preliminary and it can change during the semester.

Best regards and take care of yourselves.

Subject specific learning outcomes and competences

The students will learn and understand basic methods of image processing and sound processing as 2D and 1D digital signals. They will get acquainted with compression and decompression methods for image and sound data in PC environment. They will also learn how to exploit programmers interfaces' for image and sound and get acquainted with data formats for image and sound representation and with basic features of digital signal processors. They will learn about raster operations in Windows API, DirectX, and OpenGL and with sound interfaces of Windows API and DirectX, too. Finally, they will get acquainted with the anticipated development of multimedia data processing.

Generic learning outcomes and competences

The students will learn to search team partners, to work in team, and to defend their work in public. They will also improve their skills in development tools usage and also in practical C/C++ programming.
