Lecture 7: Video SE Fundamentals Questions? How did you spend 6-8 hours on this course last week? This week?
Lecture 7: VideoIntro to IT Assessment Process Submit all assignments via Blackboard in the Learning Hub Assignment 1due 11.59pm Sunday 1 st April Assignment 2due 11.59pm Sunday 6 th May Assignment 3 due 11.59pm Sunday 27 th May Late assignments attract a penalty of 10% per day late, up to a maximum of 50%
Lecture 7: VideoIntro to IT Assignment Assignment will be in three parts Overall task is to produce a video Groups of up to 3 Assessed by final video and group blog Part 1: images and audio (end of week 5) Part2: hardware (end of week 9) Part 3: reflection, research (end of week 12)
Lecture 7: VideoIntro to IT Assignment 1 Use GIMP (or a similar tool) to perform some manipulations on an image Use Audacity to perform some manipulations on sound Use a movie making tool to produce something like (and much better than!) ‘Lord of the Controllers 1 & 2’ me your group and its name so that I can set up a blog on the Learning Hub
Lecture 7: VideoIntro to IT Overview …
Lecture 7: VideoIntro to IT And now for something completely different …
Lecture 7: VideoIntro to IT History – which came first? Invented in 1920’s Commercially available in 1930’s Widespread in Australia in 1950’s Invented in 1940’s Commercially available in 1960’s Widespread in Australia in 1980’s DOMINATES STANDARDS
Lecture 7: VideoIntro to IT Video formats NTSC National Television Systems Committee North America, Japan, Taiwan, Caribbean, … PAL Phase Alternating Line Western Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Asia, … SECAM Sequentiel Couleur avec Memoire France, Russia, Eastern Europe, … “TVs ain’t TVs!”
Lecture 7: VideoIntro to IT Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) Before “flat screens” (both and ) Draws horizontal lines TypeLinesVisible NTSC PAL SECAM625576
Lecture 7: VideoIntro to IT Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) Top to bottom One pass (progressive scan) Top to bottom Two passes (interlaced scan) 1 st pass is even lines (lower field) 2 nd pass is odd lines (upper field) Can create discontinuities in slow replays
Lecture 7: VideoIntro to IT Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) Overscan: Not all the image is visible on the screen Allows ‘fuzzy’ edges not to be seen Means content cannot be placed at the very edges Safe action area: centre 90% Safe title area: centre 80%
Lecture 7: VideoIntro to IT Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) Safe action area Safe title area
Lecture 7: VideoIntro to IT Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) Black and white: only needs luminance (what shade of grey?) Colour: luminance + 2 x chrominance (brightness, 2 x colour or hue) WHY?
Lecture 7: VideoIntro to IT Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) Black and white came first! When colour transmission became possible, needed ability to receive colour with Black and white: luminance only Colour: luminance, hue, saturation YUV used in PAL, YIQ used in NTSC (!!) Can convert RGB to/from YUV and YIQ (see material for formulae)
Lecture 7: VideoIntro to IT Sampling and Quantisation Sampling As in image (resolution, or # pixels) As in audio, ie frames per second Quantisation As for images, ie bit depth per pixel Frame aspect ratio Viewing width to height 4:3 16:9
Lecture 7: VideoIntro to IT Pixel Aspect Ratio NTSC DV frame is 720 x 480 pixels 720:480 = 3:2 ≠ 4:3 ≠ 16:9 (!!!) DV frame screen ????? Change pixel shape via pixel aspect ratio
Lecture 7: VideoIntro to IT Conclusion Web Test next week (week 5) Do online quizzes later this week Keep reading! (book particularly) Notes for Video in Learning Hub
