    Course Summary

    MPEG-4 and MPEG-7 are ISO/IEC standards developed by MPEG (Moving Picture Expert Group). MPEG-4 provides the standardized technological elements enabling the integration of the production, distribution and content access paradigms of the three fields: digital television, interactive graphic applications (synthetic content), and interactive multimedia (WWW; distribution of and access to content). An in-depth coverage of MPEG-4 is presented in this Course. First, the theoretical base tools, concepts, principals required for the understanding MPEG-4, is covered. Next, Video coding is discussed in details. After that the rest of the MPEG-4 Standard is reviewed. Applications, opportunities and obstacles are covered. An introduction to a multimedia content description standard, MPEG-7, is presented.

    Course Objectives

    At the completion of this course, students will have a basic understanding of how MPEG-4, and -7 work. They will be familiar with the various compression algorithms and technologies. Students will learn to identify common problems with digital video quality, their causes, and solutions. In addition, students will learn MPEG-4, and MPEG-7 basics and terminology.
