Paper Abstract

An efficient image source coding technique gives good compression performance at low computational complexity. This research introduces an efficient coding technique, based on pyramid coding, that involves transforming an image into an equivalent, lower entropy form prior to lossless coding. The proposed method is also a multiresolution technique that facilitates progressive image transmission.
