Audiovisual Content Quality
Human-hearing properties and characteristics that affect the quality of reproduced sound. Fidelity and authenticity measurements in both analog and digital domains: lossless and lossy audio coding and compression. Generic sound-related distortion types: linear, non-linear distortions and additive noise. Objective and subjective sound quality measurements. Practical electroacoustic measurement approaches. International quality standards for audio production.
Properties of the Human Visual System. Objective and subjective distortion measurement. One- and multi-dimensional sampling theory - the Shannon-Nyquist theorem. Quantization. Reconstruction by interpolation. Lossless and lossy compression of images and moving sequences. Motion estimation, international standardization. Visual archive impairments: taxonomy, detection and restoration.
