The course gives students knowledge necessary to produce and edit multimedia content using variety of tools and creative methods. Lectures are focused on presentation of standards, technologies, methods and approaches commonly used in commercial and alternative creation processes. The presented topics include production process of multimedia content, interactive multimedia applications, data formats and compression methods, technical equipment to record video, lighting devices and their control. The course also contain problematics of archivation and distribution of multimedia content. The part of the course is also a project with use of presented technologies and methods.

Study targets:

The goal of the course is to introduce the student into the field of multimedia in wider context of applications and approaches in such a way that the student does not stay near the commonly known approaches but he/she can extend known methods and applications in a new context.


The course includes lectures focused on technologies and techniques used in the design and implementation of multimedia projects. Furthermore, the content consists of exercises aimed at practical verification of the substance of the lectures. Students will also draw up a separate project involving the implementation of simple multimedia applications.
