Multimedia Signal Processing

Algorithms for innovative processing of video and audio signals are analyzed, optimized and implemented. Focus is OFDM receiver design, source coding and decoding, and video and audio quality analysis and improvement. Target applications are mobile multi standard platforms like in cars and trains on the one hand, and professional broadcasting on the other hand.

Main aspect of our algorithmic research is the optimization for efficient implementations. We extensively use FPGA prototypes as well as real-time DSP implementations for feasibility studies.
