Paper Abstract

It has been suggested that the principles of tomography should be applicable to image data compression. In this work an extremely simple optical device for the tomographic encoding and decoding of an image is proposed. This device is simulated through digital image processing, and various forms of image data compression are applied so that the resulting reconstructed images may be compared. It is found that indeed the method should be useful in practice, resulting in large factors of data compression, with flexible control over the factors affecting image quality.
