Total MPEG for engineers

A 2 days
training course

MPEG training course description

This course studies the MPEG standards for video and audio compression. A major focus is on MPEG-4 and MPEG-TS. Hands on includes decoding and analysing MPEG streams.

Key outcomes from this course

By the end of the course delegates will be able to:
  • Recognise the main MPEG standards.
  • Describe the techniques used in MPEG video and audio compression.
  • Compare MPEG2m MPEG4 and MPEG-H.
  • Describe the MPEG-TS.
  • Analyse MPEG streams.

Training approach

This structured course uses Instructor Led Training to provide the best possible learning experience. Small class sizes ensure students benefit from our engaging and interactive style of teaching with delegates encouraged to ask questions throughout the course. Quizzes follow each major section allowing checking of learning. Hands on sessions are used throughout to allow delegates to consolidate their new skills.

Why Choose Us

SNT trainers score an average of over 90% on the three main areas of:
  • Ability to teach
  • Technical knowledge
  • Answering questions
“Excellently presented by a very knowledgeable and enthusiastic trainer.” P.D. General Dynamics

We limit our maximum class size to 8 delegates; often we have less than this. This ensures optimal interactivity between delegates and instructor.
"Excellent course. The small class size was a great benefit…" M.B. IBM

We write our own courses; courseware does not just consist of slides and our slides are diagrams not bullet point text. A typical chapter provides clearly defined objectives with a chapter overview, slides with text underneath, a quiz at the end to check the learning of the students. Hands on exercises are at the end and are used to reinforce the theory.
