Overview

Digital image business applications are expanding rapidly, driven by recent advances in the technology and breakthroughs in the price and performance of hardware and firmware. This ever increasing need for the storage and transmission of images has in turn driven the technology of image compression: image data rate reduction to save storage space and reduce transmission rate requirements. Digital image compression offers a solution to a variety of imaging applications that require a vast amount of data to represent the images, such as document imaging management systems, facsimile transmission, image archiving, remote sensing, medical imaging, entertainment, HDTV, broadcasting, education and video teleconferencing.
Digital Image Compression: Algorithms and Standards introduces the reader to compression algorithms, including the CCITT facsimile standards T.4 and T.6, JBIG, CCITT H.261 and MPEG standards. The book provides comprehensive explanations of the principles and concepts of the algorithms, helping the readers' understanding and allowing them to use the standards in business, product development and R&D.
Audience: A valuable reference for the graduate student, researcher and engineer. May also be used as a text for a course on the subject.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Explains to users of digital imaging technology, especially in a business context, the fundamentals of compressing image data to reduce storage space and transmission time, both of which are often factors limiting their use. Covers the principles of compression and the algorithms used for them, standards for such applications as facsimiles and digital video, and several approaches to coding including recognition-based, and fractal. Should suffice as a complete guide for managers to choosing and installing a compression system, and an introduction for technical readers. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
