Paper Abstract

The diversity in the nature of TV images is increasing due to the mixing of graphics data with natural scenery. In this paper we study the lossless coding of such graphics data with the objective to come to recommendations for video compression of such images. For this purpose, a comparison has been made between contour coding, template coding and run-length coding of graphical imagery. It is concluded that template coding is suitable for TXT-like images but it is not practical for more generic graphics images. For menus and similar imagery, contour and run-length coding provide interesting options.
