Author Affiliations +
This paper describes an image compression engine that is valuable for compressing virtually all types of images that occur in a personal computer environment. This allows efficient handling of still frame video images (monochrome or color) as well as documents and graphics (black-and-white or color) for archival and transmission applications. Through software control different image sizes, bit depths, and choices between lossless compression, high speed compression and controlled error compression are allowed. Having integrated a diverse set of compression algorithms on a single board, the device is suitable for a multitude of picture archival and communication (PAC) applications including medical imaging, electronic publishing, prepress imaging, document processing, law enforcement and forensic imaging.
