about cs5248

This module is targeted at computer science research students and covers the major aspects of continuous media (digital video and audio) 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. Note: This should have been a 6000-level course.
