This two‐day course looks at how we pass video and audio through the broadcast system, and the techniques we use to make this possible. It looks at files and codecs in detail. This involves learning about compression techniques, looking at wrappers and how they are used to put multiple sets of data into a single file, and the metadata which is then used to describe the data. The course will investigate the working principles of lossless and lossy compression techniques and how those are applied to the common codecs we used, from JPEG to H265.
