Abstract
This report briefly reviews a new technique for pictorial encoding. Exploiting the characteristics of the human visual system, a halftone screening procedure is utilized to develop a binary-pixel representation of the image. This binary data is then encoded, enabling much less than 1 bit/pixel storage/communications cost. The proposed strategy is simple to implement, primarily digital, and capable of high speeds. Furthermore, the output image is most compatible with binary display and marking engine technologies.
