Description: ENEE408G is an
introductory course on multimedia signal processing bringing real-world
design experience to students using state-of-the-art multimedia software and
hardware. Each week there will be one 75-min lecture and three-hour design
lab (see below). Lectures will provide basic theories and principles on
multimedia compression, processing, communications, security, and
Lab Design Projects: There are four design labs elements on fundamental multimedia issues employing the state-of-the-art technologies on digital image, video, audio processing and speech recognition.
Color coordinates, visual perception, image enhancement & compression, and digital photograph.
Video capturing, motion estimation/compensation, video codec, content-based indexing and database, scene change detection, and video conferencing.
Speech analysis, coding, synthesis, recognition, and speech-enabled human-computer interface.
Perceptual audio compression, watermarking, synthetic audio, and digital rights management.
Final Design Project: This is a team-based project on designing and implementing multimedia signal processing systems. Each student team will emulate a high-tech company that will

* The grade of design project 4 [A] weights 12% of the final grade. The grade of project 4 includes 8% for technical elements and 4% on the engineering ethics. This part consists of an ethics essay (follows Part IV: Digital Rights Protection of Multimedia and related Ethics Issues for Engineers) and an ethics assignment (follows Ethics in Engineering session on Wednesday 04/04).
Academic dishonesty will not be tolerated. The University Code of Academic Integrity, which can be found at http://www.inform.umd.edu/CampusInfo/Departments/JPO/ prohibits students from committing the following acts of academic dishonesty: cheating, fabrication, facilitating academic dishonesty, and plagiarism. Academic dishonesty in this class includes outright copying on homework; however, discussing homework problems and exchanging tips is permissible and also encouraged. If there are any take-home exams, discussing the material with anyone, inside or outside of the class, is considered academic dishonesty. Instances of academic dishonesty will be referred to Office of Judicial Programs.
