In this area of the website we want to give you information about the topics of research. There are three major topics at the institute.
Audio Signal Processing
In audio signal processing one main topic is considered: To separate single acoustical sources out of a mixture of sources (blind source separation).
Video Analysis and Content Recognition
This research area comprises, among others, the identification of objects or persons, scene analysis, segmentation and description of visual and semantic features for signal identification.
In the area of video coding efficient algorithms are developed for e.g. scalable or error resilient coding of video signals. Beside transmission over arbitrary networks we consider also coding of high resolution videos.
Another topic is signal decimation and interpolation considering motion and resolution artifacts and the optimization of frequency analysis for coding and signal detection.
