Description

This module covers a high level disscussion and analysis of Image processing and Audio Processing funadmentals.

On Image processing is looks at the standard parameters used to describe an image as well as basic digital image processing techniques.

In Audio processing the basic terminology of sound and music is covered along with frequency analysis techniques and audio processing algorithms.

Learning Outcomes

On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;

1.

Describe the important parameters used in the description of images.

2.

Use standard Vision System Software.

3.

Make appropriate modifications to images to achieve specified results.

4.

Describe the main terms used in Music Technology.

5.

Use audio effects and manipulation to achieve desired results.

Teaching and Learning Strategies

It is proposed that a workplace engagement component will be introduced to this module via a guest lecturer from industry, an industrial site visit or a work-based assignment where possible.
