Paper Abstract

This paper asks how the vision community can contribute to the goal of achieving perceptually lossless image fidelity with maximum compression. In order to maintain a sharp focus the discussion is restricted to the JPEG-DCT image compression standard. The numerous problems that confront vision researchers entering the field of image compression are discussed. Special attention is paid to the connection between the contrast sensitivity function and the JPEG quantization matrix.
