Fundamentals of Image, Audio, and Video Processing Using MATLAB(R) introduces the concepts and principles of media processing and its applications in pattern recognition by adopting a hands-on approach using program implementations. The book covers the tools and techniques for reading, modifying, and writing image, audio, and video files using the data analysis and visualization tool MATLAB(R). Ke… y Features:Covers fundamental concepts of image, audio, and video processingDemonstrates the use of MATLAB on solving problems on media processingDiscusses important features of Image Processing Toolbox, Audio System Toolbox, and Computer Vision ToolboxMATLAB codes are provided as answers to specific problemsIllustrates the use of Simulink for audio and video processingHandles processing techniques in both the Spatio-Temporal domain and Frequency domainThis is a perfect companion for graduate and post-graduate students studying courses on image processing, speech and language processing, signal processing, video object detection and tracking, and related multimedia technologies, with a focus on practical implementations using programming constructs and skill developments. It will also appeal to researchers in the field of pattern recognition, computer vision and content-based retrieval, and for students of MATLAB courses dealing with media processing, statistical analysis, and data visualization.Dr. Ranjan Parekh, PhD (Engineering), is Professor at the School of Education Technology, Jadavpur University, Calcutta, India, and is involved with teaching subjects related to Graphics and Multimedia at the post-graduate level. His research interest includes multimedia information processing, pattern recognition, and computer vision.
