School of Electrical and Computer Engineering

Video Devices and Systems Course code: 317304 | 8 ECTS credits

Basic information
Level of Studies: Master applied studies
Year of Study: 1
Semester: 1
Goal: Students should master the theoretical and practical knowledge necessary for advanced use of various devices throughout the technical chain from production to reproduction of video signals, as well as the advanced theoretical and practical knowledge of all phases of development, implementation and maintenance of video systems: production, processing, measurement, testing and transmission of video signals, and connecting devices and subsystems to more complex video systems of different purposes.
Outcome: Upon completion of this course, students will be able to perform wise choice of appropriate video equipment for the purpose and to properly apply it: install, connect, test, put into operation and use.
