An Algorithm for Grayscale Images Compression based on the forward Adaptive Quantizer Designed for Signals with Discrete Amplitudes
AbstractIn this paper an algorithm for grayscale image compression is presented, based on implementation of forward adaptive quantizers designed for signals with discrete amplitudes. Experiments are done, applying this algorithm on standard grayscale images and obtained results show that significant reduction of the bit-rate can be achieved (about 40%), maintaining very high quality of the reconstructed image, i.e. near lossless compression is performed.
