Paper Abstract

The emergence of digital display, storage and retrieval equipment has prompted a standard format for transmitting images between different type machines having access to a common channel. The standard assumes that the major cost in image transmission is access to the channel and that computation costs at the sending and receiving machines are small and will continue to get smaller. The standard allows data compression schemes and flexible picture element (pixel) representations. Standard format messages can contain variable numbers of images of different aspect ratios, resolutions, pixel types and compression schemes.
