CM0268 MATLAB DSP GRAPHICS 1 262 JJ II J I Back Close 1D Example Lets consider a 1D (e.g. Audio) example to see what the different domains mean: Consider a complicated sound such as the noise of a car horn. We can describe this sound in two related ways: Sample the amplitude of the sound many times a second, which gives an approximation to the sound as a function of time. Analyse the sound in terms of the pitches of the notes, or frequencies, which make the sound up, recording the amplitude of each frequency.
CM0268 MATLAB DSP GRAPHICS 1 263 JJ II J I Back Close An 8 Hz Sine Wave In the example (next slide): A signal that consists of a sinusoidal wave at 8 Hz. 8 Hz means that wave is completing 8 cycles in 1 second The frequency of that wave (8 Hz). From the frequency domain we can see that the composition of our signal is one wave (one peak) occurring with a frequency of 8 Hz with a magnitude/fraction of 1.0 i.e. it is the whole signal.

CM0268 MATLAB DSP GRAPHICS 1 265 JJ II J I Back Close 2D Image Example Now images are no more complex really: Brightness along a line can be recorded as a set of values measured at equally spaced distances apart, Or equivalently, at a set of spatial frequency values. Each of these frequency values is a frequency component . An image is a 2D array of pixel measurements. We form a 2D grid of spatial frequencies. A given frequency component now specifies what contribution is made by data which is changing with specified x and y direction spatial frequencies.

CM0268 MATLAB DSP GRAPHICS 1 266 JJ II J I Back Close What do frequencies mean in an image? Large values at high frequency components then the data is changing rapidly on a short distance scale. e.g. a page of text Large low frequency components then the large scale features of the picture are more important. e.g. a single fairly simple object which occupies most of the image.
CM0268 MATLAB DSP GRAPHICS 1 267 JJ II J I Back Close How to Filter? Low pass filter — Ignore high frequency noise components — make zero or a very low value. Only store lower frequency components

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
