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.
