Multimedia Systems (3 credits)

Network service requirements for streaming media and interactive media applications are analyzed. Audio and video coding and compression algorithms are surveyed. Challenges and solutions for delivering continuous media over today’s best-effort Internet are investigated. Protocols for establishing and controlling multimedia sessions, for transporting continuous media end-to-end, and for wide-area dissemination of multimedia data are also investigated. Evolving Internet services models for establishing and maintaining levels of quality-of-service are evaluated. Students are expected to form groups to complete a significant semester project involving an investigation and the development of a prototype.
