3 2 T.Sharon-A.Frank Coding Techniques – Hybrid

4 3 T.Sharon-A.Frank Hybrid coding Images: –JPEG Video/Audio –MJPEG –MPEG (1, 2, 4) –Other codings –H.26x

5 4 Image files may be too big for network transmission, even at low resolutions. Use more sophisticated data representation or discard information to reduce data size. Effectiveness of compression will depend on actual image data. For any compression scheme, there will always be some data for which 'compressed' version is actually bigger than the original. Image Compression

6 5 T.Sharon-A.Frank Compression Steps 1. Preparation: analog to digital conversion. 2. Processing: transform data into a domain easier to compress. 3. Quantization: reduce precision at which the output is stored. 4. Entropy encoding: remove redundant information in the resulting data stream. Picture Preparation Picture Processing Quanti- zation Entropy Encoding Image Uncompressed Image Compressed

7 6 T.Sharon-A.Frank JPEG Goals: Support still images True color/grayscale Continuous-tone pictures Usually lossy Subjects: Quality Steps Modes Joint Photographic Experts Group

8 7 T.Sharon-A.Frank JPEG Picture Quality 0.25 – 0.5 bits/pixel Moderate to good quality. 0.5 – 0.75 bits/pixel Good to very good quality. 0.75 – 1.5 bits/pixel Excellent quality. 1.5 – 2.0 bits/pixel Usually indistinguishable from the original.

9 8 Lossy technique, well suited to photographs, images with fine detail and continuous tones. Consider image as a spatially varying signal that can be analysed in the frequency domain. Experimental fact: people do not perceive the effect of high frequencies in images very accurately. Hence, high frequency information can be discarded without perceptible loss of quality. JPEG Compression

13 12 If image resolution < output device resolution, must interpolate extra pixels –Always leads to loss of quality. If image resolution > output device resolution, must downsample (discard pixels): –Quality will often be better than that of an image at device resolution (uses more information). – Image sampled at a higher resolution than that of intended output device is over sampled. Changing Resolution

17 16 T.Sharon-A.Frank Stage 2: Image Processing Using DCT (Discrete Cosine Transform) Convert from Spatial to Frequency Domain Input : 8x8 matrix of 64 values Output: –1 DC value (basic color of block = average color) –63 AC values low frequency coefficients, have high values high frequency coefficients – represent sharp edges, have low values

18 17 T.Sharon-A.Frank Discrete Cosine Transform (DCT) A Fourier-related transform similar to the Discrete Fourier Transform (DFT), but using only real numbers. Often used in signal and image processing. Maps values from spatial domain to frequency domain – image areas with low frequency (large blocks of single color) are compressed more efficiently. Used in JPEG, MJPEG, MPEG, and DV Compression.

19 18 Analyses a signal into its frequency components. Takes array of pixel values, produces an array of coefficients of frequency components in the image. Computationally expensive process – time proportional to square of number of pixels. Usually applied to 8x8 blocks of pixels. DCT Dynamics

24 23 T.Sharon-A.Frank Probability Distribution of DCT Coefficients Probability of being nonzero 0.0 8 16 24 32 40 48 56 77 1.0 0.5 Zigzag index

25 24 T.Sharon-A.Frank Next Stages Stage 3: Quantization Based on quantization table: –Quantization table: values from 1 to 255 –DCT coefficient/Table value –If value > 0, keep DCT coefficient else, don’t keep DCT coefficient Stage 4: Entropy Encoding

26 25 Applying DCT does not reduce data size –Array of coefficients is same size as array of pixels. Allows information about high frequency components to be identified and discarded. Use fewer bits (distinguish fewer different values) for higher frequency components. Number of levels for each frequency coefficient may be specified separately in a quantization matrix. JPEG Quantization

27 26 T.Sharon-A.Frank Computation of the quantized DCT coefficients

28 27 T.Sharon-A.Frank Order in which the quantized values are transmitted

29 28 After quantization, there will be many zero coefficients. –Use RLE on zig-zag sequence (maximizes runs). Use Huffman coding of other coefficients (best use of available bits). JPEG Entropy Encoding

30 29 T.Sharon-A.Frank Steps of JPEG Compression Picture Preparation Pixel Block, MCU Picture Processing Predictor FDCT Quantization Entropy Encoding Run-Length Huffman Arithmetic Steps taking into account the different JPEG modes

31 30 Expand runs of zeros and decompress Huffman- encoded coefficients to reconstruct array of frequency coefficients. Use Inverse Discrete Cosine Transform to take data back from frequency to spatial domain. Data discarded in quantization step of compression procedure cannot be recovered. Reconstructed image is an approximation (usually very good) to the original image. JPEG Decompression

33 32 T.Sharon-A.Frank JPEG Modes of Operation Lossless Encoding: the image is encoded to guarantee exact recovery of every source image sample value (low compression ratio). Sequential Encoding: each image is encoded in a single left-to-right, top-to-bottom scan. Progressive Encoding: the image is encoded in multiple scans for applications in which transmission time is long. Hierarchical Encoding: the image is encoded at multiple resolutions.
