Paper Abstract

Progressive transmission of images is an important functionality for communicating high resolution images over limited bandwidth networks. By encoding the image data in an accessible and hierarchical format, the JPEG 2000 standard supports many types of image progressions, e.g., based on quality, resolution, component and position. This paper considers a progressive transmission scheme in which codestream ordering and transmission decisions are driven entirely by the server, which is useful for classes of applications that employ image analysis at the server and perform streaming based on the results of this analysis. The proposed system aims to minimize signaling overhead and allow for incremental decoding and display with minimal processing delay. It also aims to fully exploit the various styles of progression that are enabled by the JPEG 2000 coding format. The performance of our proposed scheme is reported in terms of signaling overhead, complexity and visual effectiveness.
