Paper Abstract

Visual pattern image coding, or VPIC1-5, is an important new digital image coding process that possesses significant advantages relative to all other existing technologies: VPIC is capable of coding (i) with visual fidelity comparable to the best available techniques; (ii) at very high compressions exceeding the best available technologies: compressions in the range 30:1—40:1 are obtained routinely; (iii) with absolutely unprecedented coding efficiency - coding/decoding via VPIC is completely linear with respect to image size and entails a complexity 1-2 orders of magnitude faster than any prior high compression strategy; (iv) configurability. In the current work, the VPIC coding framework developed initially for single images is extended to image sequences. The algorithm for image sequence coding presented here, termed Visual Pattern Image Sequence Coding (or VPISC) exploits all of the advantages of "static" VPIC in the reduction of information from an additional (temporal) dimension to achieve unprecedented image sequence coding performance stated in terms of coding complexity, compression, and visual fidelity.
