Audio Visual Technology (AVT) group at a glance

Our mission in more detail

The success of audio and video technology solutions depends on their technical performance and on the experience that the user has with such solutions. To understand the impact that technology has on the user, the emphasis of our work is to develop assessment strategies and tools that fully characterize audio and video technology. To this aim, our approaches look at the full range from technical system properties and the audio and video signals to the human perception, experience and interaction with or over the systems.

Our research in more detail

Our research includes aspects of the whole production and transmission chain from the original audiovisual scene, capture, processing, transmission, reproduction, to perception and experience. We are addressing voice, audio and video systems and services. A special focus is set on the opportunities offered by convergent, IP-based networks for advanced multimedia services.

Our teaching in more detail

The group's teaching includes basic and advanced courses in the Media Technology Bachelor and Master programs as well as media technology courses for other Bachelor and Master programs of TU Ilmenau. The courses cover all common formats, i.e. lectures, exercises, laboratories, seminars and projects. The possibility to do a Bachelor and Master thesis complement our teaching offers.

Our output in more detail
