CS5248: Systems Support for Continuous Media
Course Summary(Fall 2007 )

This module is targeted at computer science graduate 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.

General Information

Originally, CS5248 was conducted as a research-oriented module. The last time CS5248 was offered (in 2005) it was more hands-on and application oriented, even though students were still expected to pick up useful research skills such as reading and writing papers, and solving research problems from the course. This time around it will again be somewhat more research-oriented. The course will include a project, but its exact nature will depend on how many students will attend the class.
