Pre-requisite Courses and Assumed Knowledge and Capabilities

The multimedia engineering course assumes an elementary knowledge of science and mathematics at degree entry level.

Course Description

Course covers the basics of Multimedia systems with an engineering focus.

Examples are audio and video input systems, processing and delivery of multimedia content.

Laboratory work will cover media component generation and processing including audio systems, picture acquisition, image sequence acquisition and processing of these MM components.

Tutorials will also be given allowing fundamental principles and applications of MM systems to be digested.

Objectives/Learning Outcomes/Capability Development

You will  develop an appreciation and knowledge of Multimedia system engineering in order to select and configure Multimedia systems,in particular audiovisual systems.

Student capabilities will include an appreciation of operating parameters and selection of media input systems and application of these systems in order to record and display media content.

Learning outcomes are an ability to appreciate the principles and applications of multimedia hardware and software systems in order to select and configure a multimedia system for media component  acquisition and processing.

You will gain an understanding of engineering considerations in the selection, application and production of multimedia systems.
