Paper Abstract

Low bit rate image coding results in artifacts at reconstruction whose characteristics depend on the form of the coding/decoding algorithm used. A very common, and visually objectionable effect of most coding methods is distortion of edges. Classical spatially-invariant filtering techniques are of little use in removing this signal-dependent reconstruction error. This paper presents an algorithm for locating and tracing perceptually important edges, and for enhancement through nonstationary filtering. Edge detection and enhancement are reduced to a sequence of simple one-dimensional processes. The algorithm yields encouraging experimental results when applied to images coded by the block list transform and vector quantization.
