Theses and working student activities related to the research project dwerft-2

rund um das Forschungsprojekt dwerft-2

Traditionally decoupled systems in all areas of the media world (idea, conception, production and archiving) must be connected in order to meet today‘s requirements of media consumption. This is the goal of the research project “dwerft-2 (www.dwerft.de).
To support our project team, we offer several theses and working student activities on the following topics:

  • Evaluation of audio and video analysis systems for automated keyword generation (P08/2019)
  • Research of mechanisms for metadata enrichment (P09/2019)


Bachelor/Master Thesis

on the topic „Comparison of different measurement methods to evaluate subjective image quality“

For the introduction of new video formats (e.g. UHDTV), image quality studies must first be carried out in order to then make usable decisions on video parameters. In addition to purely objective measurement methods (e.g. PSNR) or subjective tests with test persons, there are also various subjective measurement methods for determining the image quality, which take into account the human sense of sight and the different perception of colour, dynamics, resolution, coding artifacts, etc. In your thesis you will mainly examine the extent to which the measurement methods differ or are suitable depending on the genre or field of application.

Bachelor/Master Thesis

on the topic „UHD – colour reception for High Dynamic Range Applications”

The standardisation of UHDTV according to ITU-R BT.2100 including the introduction of the extended color space (Wide Color Gamut WCG) and the High Dynamic Range (HDR) also requires an adjustment of the display measurements and the tolerances, which the display has to maintain at a higher dynamic range, so that the human eye cannot perceive any differences. In addition to the research, an investigation (subjective test) will also be developed, planned and carried out in your thesis. The results will be used for further works of IRT and EBU.
