Digital Media Technologies staff are involved in a number of exciting research projects. We work within three closely related and often overlapping research groups:
Digital Image and Video Processing
This group researches technologies for analysing and processing single images or image sequences (such as video or image slices) to identify, segment and manipulate objects within the images. It also addresses issues arising from the distribution of video over networks.
Digital Music Processing
This group studies technologies for analysing and processing music, using a range of Digital Signal Processing (DSP) techniques. This involves processing musical event data in real-time and the processing of digital audio signals. Our research extends to embrace psychoacoustics and music theory/analysis/synthesis subject areas.
Digital Media Distribution
Within the School of Digital Media Technology there is focus on the distribution of media across all existing infrastructures and the evolution of new services across these networks.
