COMPUTER IMAGING AND SYSTEMS B - 2020/1
Module code: FVP2006
In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, and in a departure from previous academic years and previously published information, the University has had to change the delivery (and in some cases the content) of its programmes, together with certain University services and facilities for the academic year 2020/21.
These changes include the implementation of a hybrid teaching approach during 2020/21. Detailed information on all changes is available at: https://www.surrey.ac.uk/coronavirus/course-changes. This webpage sets out information relating to general University changes, and will also direct you to consider additional specific information relating to your chosen programme.
Prior to registering online, you must read this general information and all relevant additional programme specific information. By completing online registration, you acknowledge that you have read such content, and accept all such changes.
This module is intended to further develop the use and application of computing in the professional media industry. Developing the application of switchers, routers and IT systems and applying video over IP and ethernet in an asynchronous environment.

|Assessment type||Unit of assessment||Weighting|
|Coursework||COURSEWORK 1 - GROUP PROJECT||30|
|School-timetabled exam/test||COURSEWORK 2 - CLASS TEST 1 HOUR||20|
|Coursework||COURSEWORK 3 - INDIVIDUAL COMPUTER SYSTEM PROJECT||50|
The assessment strategy is designed to provide students with the opportunity to demonstrate computing protocols as applied to video over IP and their understanding of data communications for the media industry. Team work and critical thinking are assessed in small groups with one-to-one guidance from staff.
Thus, the summative assessment for this module consists of:
- Coursework 1 – Group project for media connectivity using routers and switches 20%
- Coursework 2 - Class test (covering learning outcomes 1-4), 30%
- Coursework 3 - Individual computer systems project for video in an asynchronous environment, 50%
There are no formal formative assessment components for this module, but formative feedback will be given to individual students in tutorials during lab sessions.
Formative assessment is provided through coursework feedback and continuous interaction during lab sessions.
Students receive written feedback on their coursework and verbal feedback on their practical work throughout the module.
- Introduce the use of switches and routers in data communications
- Apply ethernet and internet protocol to video distribution
- Understand the effect of IT systems on media distribution

Overall student workload
Independent Study Hours: 102
Lecture Hours: 24
Seminar Hours: 12
Laboratory Hours: 12
Methods of Teaching / Learning
The learning and teaching strategy is designed to continue the development of the student’s application of computing to the media industry.
The learning and teaching methods include:
- One two hour lecture (weeks1-12)
- Practical computing laboratory sessions and seminars to enable students put theory learnt in the lecture into practice.
Indicated Lecture Hours (which may also include seminars, tutorials, workshops and other contact time) are approximate and may include in-class tests where one or more of these are an assessment on the module. In-class tests are scheduled/organised separately to taught content and will be published on to student personal timetables, where they apply to taken modules, as soon as they are finalised by central administration. This will usually be after the initial publication of the teaching timetable for the relevant semester.
