Digital Techniques for the Compression of Images
This 15 page report discusses the fact that, currently, JPEG is still the most common way of storing and exchanging still-photograph image information. However, fractal compression, wavelets, progressive decompression, bandwidth availability, are considerations, as is the ultimate application of the various image compression tools. The best compression techniques all lessen overall storage density and transmission bandwidth for still and video images, both within a system and between systems. Therefore, new solutions are being (and have been) actively sought. Bibliography lists 10 sources.
