Educational software simulation (2012-2015)
Videolab is an educational software piece that teaches and lets users experiment with concepts of digital video technology. It can be used standalone by students or as a lecturing tool by instructors. It was initially developed as part of my early PhD research. We made a small case study of Videolab's guided application in the classroom.
Videolab includes four modules, teaching and letting users experiment with:
- Picture aspect ratio;
- Progressive and interlaced scanning;
- Luminance, chrominance and subsampling;
- Color depth.
Video can be captured from the webcam (if detected) or loaded from a file.
Binary releases are available. Use VideoLab 1.0 for older Windows (Vista or 7) and MacOS systems.
