Learning outcomes
The course focuses on the area of processing multimedia signals and data. Its aim is to introduce advanced techniques that are not presented to normal multimedia user, however, are crucial for work with them and usable also for other tasks. On the lectures will be discussed major topics of signal processing in general and audio, image and video processing. During the seminars students learn to use selected methods using the available prepared tools, or through implementation of selected methods, or using prepared solutions in larger projects. After completing the course, students will acquire knowledge necessary for a qualified work with multimedia data on both theoretical and practical level.
After completing the course, the student will acquire the knowledge necessary for qualified work with multimedia data, both on the theoretical and practical level. Students will be able to process this data at a higher level into multimedia products and at a lower level focused on particular data representation and manipulation with it.
To complete the course, it is advisable to have basic knowledge programming.

Assessment methods and criteria
Written examination, Analysis of student's work activities (technical works), Seminar work, Interim evaluation

During the semester, students work on projects arising from the subject matter. The exam is evaluated on the basis of semester, semestral work and theoretical test. Terms of endings: Compleeting exercise projects (about 5 tasks) - 5 x 10 p. (min. 25 p.) Semestral work - 40 b. (min. 20 b.) Test - 30 p. (min. 15 p.)
