JPEG2000 Standard for Image Compression: Concepts, Algorithms and VLSI Architectures

JPEG2000 Standard for Image Compression: Concepts, Algorithms and VLSI Architectures

by Tinku Acharya, Ping-Sing Tsai




JPEG2000 Standard for Image Compression presents readers with the basic background to this multimedia compression technique and prepares the reader for a detailed understanding of the JPEG2000 standard, using both the underlying theory and the principles behind the algorithms of the JPEG2000 standard for scalable image compression. It introduces the VLSI architectures and algorithms for implementation of the JPEG2000 standard in hardware (not available in the current literature), an important technology for a number of image processing applications and devices such as digital camera, color fax, printer, and scanners.
