Project: Image compression with adaptive orthonormal transforms.

project duration
01-OCT-94 – 31-DEC-99
This project aims to further develop two new image compression methods, based on image-dependent orthonormal transforms : segmented image coding and image compression using warped polynomials. Both methods model an image by a sum of base functions. In contrast to classical methods, these base functions are image dependent, which allows a better compression factor. Applications : photo fax, image archiving, multi media, picture phone, digital television.
