Image and Video Communications and Signal Processing

Audiovisual experiences are key drivers, not just for entertainment but also for business, security and technology development. Video accounts for around 80 per cent of all internet traffic and some mobile network operators have predicted that wireless traffic will double every year for the next 10 years - driven primarily by video. Visual information processing also plays a major role underpinning other industries such as healthcare, security, robotics and autonomous systems. This challenging, one-year taught Master's degree covers a range of advanced topics drawn from the field of multimedia signal processing and communications. The programme covers the properties and limitations of modern communication channels and networks, alongside the coding and compression methods required for efficient and reliable wired and wireless audio-visual transmission. It provides students with an excellent opportunity to acquire the necessary skills to enter careers in one of the most dynamic and exciting fields in ICT.
