Paper Abstract

Traditionally the distribution of the prediction error has been treated as the single-parameter Laplacian distribution, and based on this assumption one can design a set of Huffman codes selected through an estimate of the parameter. More recently, the prediction error distribution has been compared to the Gaussian distribution about mean zero when the value is relatively high. However when using nearly quantized prediction errors in the context model, the relatively high variance case is seen to merge conditional distributions surrounding both positive edges and negative edges. Edge information is available respectively from large negative or positive prediction errors in the neighboring pixel positions. In these cases, the mean of the distribution is usually not zero. By separating these two cases, making appropriate assumptions on the mean of the context-dependent error distribution, and other techniques, additional cost-effective compression can be achieved.
