This module is targeted at computer science graduate students
and covers the major aspects of continuous media systems -- from
coding to transmission to playback. Issues such as transport protocols,
control protocols, scheduling, caching, buffering, synchronization
and adaptations will be examined. After taking the course, students
are expected to understand the network and OS issues involved
in building continuous media applications, and able to apply practical
solutions to solve them.
This is a research-based course and students are expected to
pick up useful research skills such as reading/writing papers,
solving research problems and presenting research results.
Continuous assessment for CS5248 consists of a
research-based project (50%), paper reviews (20%), and
a survey paper (30%). No final exam.
Students are expected to read at least 3-4 papers per week. Students are
also expected to spend some hours on the research project, but your milage
Students enrolled must have sufficient background in OS and Networking.
