Paper Abstract

Imaging apparatus inevitably impose undesirable noises onto acquired images during real imaging process. Usually these noises are too faint to cause unpleasing visual effects, however, they degrade image fidelity and significantly lower the compression ratio of lossless coding. More baffling, in this case, there leaves little room for traditional noise filtering methods to work. This paper will introduce some of our efforts trying to weaken the effect of such Micro Noise during near-lossless compression. Experimental results on ISO test images and micro Gaussian noises demonstrate that with potentiality of filtering micro noise, an improved near-lossless coder can not only achieve obviously higher compression ratio but also provide better image fidelity (measured by mean squared error) than lossless coding.
