Paper Abstract

A simple, low-cost video bandwidth compressor has been developed. The design provides for interface to both interlaced and non-interlaced TV and FLIR sensors. Data rate reduction is obtained through the use of several methods including the hybrid DCT/DPCM algorithm, frame rate reduction, resolution reduction, and image truncation. The overall data rate reduction is up to 1000:1 and the picture quality is in excess of 36db at 2 bits per pixel.
