Course Instructor
SC519: Digital Photography Fundamentals
This course addresses the underlying principles behind digital photography. It is intended for a technical audience--those interested in the "how things work" of digital photography and how the cameras, printers and computers can be optimized to work together to produce high quality images. Topics covered include CCDs, CMOS, image resolutions, standards, image quality, implementation tradeoffs etc. A broad overview of the field is presented while emphasizing key issues and topics that are essential in understanding this rapidly changing field. The business side of the photographic industry is presented where appropriate. In-class demonstrations are used to clarify theory as necessary. This course will benefit anyone who works in this field, especially those who have little or no exposure to the technical side of photography.
SC071: Digital Cameras Design and Implementation Issues
This short course details each stage of the digital camera- from source to storage. The technology tradeoffs in choosing each component will be presented. Topics include the digital camera architecture; image sensors CCDs and CMOS. Color filter array (CFA) patterns and processing, camera control pipeline focus, exposure and white-balance are addressed. Image processing pipeline, storage technologies and tradeoffs, JPEG image compression and implementation, hardware, software, and gamma correction communications with external devices give this course a well-rounded outline.
SC467: Digital Imaging System Fundamentals
This comprehensive course offers the attendee an overview of the various components of an electronic imaging system (from scene to output) and how they affect overall image quality. Fundamental concepts in imaging science such as image resolutions, popular color spaces, color management, image compression standards and image processing algorithms are presented. The mechanism of operation of image input devices (cameras and scanners) and image output technologies is also presented. While the focus of the course is technical content - specifically system image quality, a perspective on the business side is offered where feasible.
