The Most Comprehensive Coverage of the Theory and Practice of Image and Video Compression

This authoritative text enables readers to grasp the basic principles of still image and video compression methods as well as the current and popular compression standards, such as JPEG, MPEG, and Advanced Video Coding (AVC). Written in clear language and with minimal mathematical derivations, it allows readers to gain practical experience in simulating actual compression systems via the globally popular MATLAB software platform.

The book first introduces qualitatively the plethora of image compression methods available followed by image acquisition techniques, illustrating the design of uniform and non–uniform quantizers. Next, various image transforms such as the discrete cosine (dct) and discrete wavelet (dwt) are explained. Predictive coding a core ingredient in various compression standards is reviewed, along with lossless compression methods. Then follow chapters on still image compression schemes using DCT and wavelets (where JPEG and JPEG2000 standards for still image compression are described) and video coding principles. Finally, the book explains video compression READ MORE >
