  • Introduction to Image and Video Processing
  • Signal Processing and Sampling
  • Point-based Processing Operation
  • Neighborhood-based Processing Operations
  • Global Processing Operations
  • Hardware-accelerated Optimization Techniques
  • Deep Neural Networks for Image and Video Transformations
  • Image and Video Stylization
  • Video Summarization


There are no formal requirements. Successful participation of 3D Computergrafik I+II lectures as well as knowledge of OpenGL and the OpenGL Shading Language is beneficial. 


  • Lectures and exercises


  • Oral or written exam at the end of the course
  • The final grade is constituted by the exercise grade (25%) and the exam grade (75%)
  • The successful passing of the exercise is mandatory to attend the exam
