This master research program offers an advanced training in information theory, source coding, signal processing for multimedia, networking, and multimedia security. An important part is devoted to the optimization of network architecture and protocols for the delivery of audio-visual contents.

Most of the courses are illustrated by labs, to make theoretical notions more concrete. A pluridisciplinary research project prepares students to research. Seminars, whose topics are continuously renewed, present hot research directions, as well as key industrial applications.
