The technical group of Image Media Quality is a technical group, that has been established in June 2004, with the aim of research and information exchange, interaction and development among researchers and engineers in image media quality, thus promoting efficient research and development. Workshops and international conferences are held several times a year, where researchers do brainstorming.

Research areas

Image Media Quality represents the quality issues related to Capturing, Communications, Broadcasting, Storage, Display, Printing and Generation of the images. Topics of interest for the technical group include, but are not limited to:
