Paper Abstract

This overview begins by emphasizing the importance of the human observer to the process of efficiently encoding picture material. By way of example, two aspects of threshold vision that bear importantly on the coding problem are discussed: the threshold of a perturbation presented against a plain background and threshold adjacent to a luminance step. Methods for incorporating threshold information into the coding operation are briefly described.
