Multimedia l.jpg

  • Media (plural of medium)

    • Virtually any means of conveying information

    • Mostly text, audio, images, video

    • Also music, raw data, graphic objects, etc.

  • Multimedia

    • More than one media type simultaneously manipulated

Multimedia what l.jpg
multiMEDIA what?

  • Medium (media): A means by which information is perceived… Or: A means of affecting or conveying something (information)

“Multimedia” is an adjective!

Multimedia information systems11 l.jpg
Multimedia Information Systems

  • The confluence of several technologies

  • Digital signal processing

  • Image processing

  • Computer graphics

  • Digital Video technology

  • Visual interactive languages

  • Advanced databases

  • Operating systems

  • Computer networks

Some enabling factors l.jpg
Some Enabling Factors

  • Optical disc technology

    • large volumes

    • preserve quality

  • Shift from analog to digital processing

    • high resolution image

    • high fidelity audio

Slide13 l.jpg

Analog Video

Digital Video

  • loss of quality in copying

  • cannot be annotated

  • consumers cannot edit

  • duplication without loss

  • index, search, editing

  • fast random access

  • high quality playback

  • interactive

Enabling factors cont d l.jpg
Enabling Factors (cont’d)

  • Fiber optics technology

    • high bandwidth

    • accuracy

    • speed

  • Fast specialized processors

    • audio boards

    • video boards

  • Better software,

    • real-time OS

    • codec (software only)

Properties of multimedia system l.jpg
Properties of Multimedia System

  • Combination of Media

    • Is any combination of media a multimedia?

  • Independence

    • Tightly coupled media are not considered multimedia, e.g., a computer controlled video recorder stores audio and video but they are tightly connected

  • Computer supported integration

  • Communication systems

Continuous vs discrete l.jpg
Continuous vs. Discrete

  • Discrete media

    • time-independent: text and graphics

  • Continuous media

    • time-dependent: sound and full motion video

Analog vs digital l.jpg
Analog vs. Digital

  • Analog

    • Media represented using real values

  • Digital

    • Media represented using discrete values

      • (integers, quantized numbers, floating point representations)

Sampled media l.jpg
Sampled media

  • Sampled media

    • Represented by discrete points (which may be real valued)

  • Notice:

    • Sampled does not imply Digital

Sampling l.jpg

Sampling - simply taking voltage readings at fixed points in time

Uniform sampling – sampling at regular intervals

Digital conversion l.jpg
Digital Conversion

  • Given voltage readings at points in time:

    • Convert the readings to digital

  • Options for digital representation:

    • Integers

    • Floating point values

We ll focus on l.jpg
We’ll focus on...

  • Digital sampled media

  • But…

    • We have to understand the underlying continuous media...

An overview of media types l.jpg
An Overview of Media Types

We will look at:

  • text

  • Image

  • Sound

  • Video

Slide24 l.jpg

  • Plain text:

    • alphanumeric characters

    • Most common representation is ASCII

  • Structured text

    • Text documents are structured (title, sections, …)

    • There are many standards and formats:

      • Word processor formats

      • LaTex, PDF

Text compression l.jpg
Text Compression

  • Compression is either lossy or lossless

  • Text compression is lossless

  • Text compression uses the fact that some characters and phrases appear more often than others

Text compression huffman coding l.jpg
Text compression: Huffman coding

  • Idea: assign fewer bits to symbols that appear more often and more bits to symbols that are less often

  • Example:

    • Assume a file with 1000 characters

    • Characters are e, t, x, and z

    • Probability of occurrence 0.8, 0.16, 0.02, and 0.02

    • In normal coding we need 2 bits for each symbol  2000 bits for the entire file

    • Using Huffman: 1 for e, 01 for t, 001 for x, and 000 for z

    • Total number of bits = 1000(1*.8+2*.16+3*.02+3*.02) = 1240

Text compression run length coding l.jpg
Text compression: run length coding

  • Directly reduce the number of repeating characters

  • A run of any length is represented by: Sc, X, C

    • Sc special character

    • X is the repeated character

    • C is the character count

Text compression lampel ziv welch lzw l.jpg

Represent the phrase by its token






add phrase to dictionary and

generate a token

Did it appear


Text compression: Lampel-Ziv-Welch (LZW)

  • Idea: build a dictionary of phrases from the input file.

Lzw example l.jpg
LZW example

  • Assume a file with 10,000 characters

  • If we use 8 bits for each character, we need 80,000 bits for the file

  • Suppose the file has 2000 words or phrases out of which 500 are distinct

  • We can use 9 bit tokens for each word or phrase  total number of bits is 18,000 bits

Image l.jpg

  • human and computer vision

  • Vision

    • to see an image and to understand its contents

    • capturing, analysis, and extracting features

  • Computer vision/image processing

    • intensity levels

    • resolution

    • distances and areas

    • the role of color

  • Images vs. Graphics

    • images are captured, graphics are created.

    • images are sequences of picture elements, graphics are a series of commands.

    • graphics may be converted into (synthetic) images

Vision image processing and visualization l.jpg




Vision, Image Processing and Visualization











What kind of images l.jpg
What kind of images…?

  • Face photos: Mug shots

  • Finger prints

  • CAT-scan data

  • News photos (general. Usually accompanied with explanatory text)

  • Surveillance (semi-specific domain,we may or may not know what to look for).

  • Video segments

    • Movies:general

    • surveillance

    • News broadcast

    • Sports
