Paper Abstract

Vector quantization (VQ) is a well-established signal and image compression transform that exhibits several drawbacks. First, the VQ codebook generation process tends to be computationally costly, and can be prohibitive for high- fidelity compression in adaptive real-time applications. Second, codebook search complexity varies as a function of image statistics, codebook formation technique, and prespecified matching error. For large codebooks, search overhead can be prohibitive for VQ compression having stringent constraints on matching error. A third disadvantage of VQ is codebook size, which can be reduced at the cost of fidelity of reproduction in the decompressed image. Such issues were discussed in Part 1 of this series of two papers.
