Paper Abstract

Still image coding techniques such as JPEG have been always applied onto intra-plane images. Coding fidelity is always utilized in measuring the performance of intra-plane coding methods. In many imaging applications, it is more and more necessary to deal with multi-spectral images, such as the color images. In this paper, a novel approach to multi-spectral image compression is proposed by using transformations among planes for further compression of spectral planes. Moreover, a mechanism of introducing human visual system to the transformation is provided for exploiting the psycho visual redundancy. The new technique for multi-spectral image compression, which is designed to be compatible with the JPEG standard, is demonstrated on extracting correlation among planes based on human visual system. A high measure of compactness in the data representation and compression can be seen with the power of the scheme taken into account.
