Paper Abstract

It is well known that when applying image coding to sequences also redundancy in time domain should be removed. An efficient way to do this is to use "hybrid-techniques", i.e. to use predictive coding in time and adaptive transform coding in the spatial domain. By adaptive transform coding we mean threshold coders similar to the "scene adaptive coder" described by Chen and Pratt [3]. Two significant problems of these methods are: 1) The complicated schemes needed to regulate the output bitrate. 2) "Subjective problems", that is blocking effects and other problems that arise from the fact that the conventional transforms are based on a statistical framework instead of being adapted to the human visual system. We propose modifications of the conventional schemes to reduce these effects.
