Paper Abstract

SRI International has developed a new technique for compression of digital color images on the basis of its research of multiplexing processes in human color vision. The technique can be used independently, or in combination with standard JPEG or any other monochrome procedure, to produce color image compression systems that are simpler than conventional implementations. Specific applications are currently being developed within four areas: (1) simplification of processing in systems that compress RGB digital images, (2) economic upgrading of black and white image capturing systems to full color, (3) triplication of spatial resolution of high-end image capturing systems currently designed for 3-plane color capture, and (4) even greater simplification of processing in systems for dynamic images.
