  • Graphics/image/video/audio data representations, including color models, HDTV, MIDI, and audio coding
  • Compression formats and standards for data, images, audio, and video, including both lossless and lossy formats
  • Multimedia networks, considering QoS, VoIP, media-on-demand, and multimedia over wireless networks
