Paper Abstract

In this paper, we will introduce a new compaction method for color images with an arithmetic coding and a Differential Pulse Code Modulation (DPCM). In the field of lossless coding, entropy coding plays an important role. For example, Arithmetic coding and Huffman coding1 are well-known entropy coding techniques. Arithmetic Coding (AC) is superior in many respects to Huffman coding.
