Paper Abstract

Typical objective methods for quantifying image quality, as part of evaluating coder performance, are obtained by computing a single or several numbers as a function of the difference image between the original and coded images. Pre- processing images prior to encoding can remove noise, or unimportant detail, and thus improve the overall performance of the coder.However, the error image obtained with the pre- processed image as a reference is substantially different than the one obtained if the original. This paper addresses the issue of combining the changes in the image due to pre- processing and the degradation due to encoding. The objective is to obtain global quality measures that quantify the value of pre-processing for image coding.
