Paper Abstract

In the usual transform compression encoding schemes, an image is divided into regular shaped subimages or blocks, a transform is performed on each block, low energy components thrown away, remaining components encoded and transmitted, and then the received image reconstructed. This paper discusses ways in which the image pixels can be permuted before the image is blocked and a special annihilation transform technique to perform the image coding. Experimental results show the compressed images to have no blocking effects, but a more mottled appearance compared to a discrete cosine transform coding method. The annihilation method on permuted images not only gives reconstructed images better visual quality, but also gives lower RMS error.
