Paper Abstract

The design of an image coder for packet-switched transmission is formulated as a minimization problem. A general set of design requirements is derived and used to design a segmentation-based texture coding algorithm. The segmentation process is performed on a pyramid data structure and uses the just noticeable difference (JND) of the human visual system as the merge criterion. To reduce the bit-rate while maintaining image quality, each region is classified as either texture or non-texture. Texture regions are approximated by a one-dimensional polynomial, while the non-texture regions are approximated by the region's mean intensity. A set of parameters for bit-rate/image quality tuning is identified and their effect evaluated on LENA and HOUSE.
