Paper Abstract

We present a report on the effects of compressing stereo pairs using lossy compression techniques. We discuss the general functionality of all lossy compressors with particular emphasis on the CCITT/ISO JPEG Still Picture Compression Standard. We show that the application of lossy compressors to stereo pairs can cause ambiguities in the resulting stereo image and we develop a measure to quantify those ambiguities. We describe two new techniques which each help to decrease some of these anomalies. We also discuss the compression rates on some test images with and without the use of these new techniques.
