Abstract
In most block-transform based codecs (coder-decoder) the compressed image is reconstructed using only the transmitted data. In this paper, the reconstruction is formulated as a regularized image recovery problem where both the transmitted data and prior knowledge about the properties of the original image are used. This is accomplished by minimizing an objective function, using iterative algorithms, which captures the smoothness properties of the original image. Experimental results are presented which demonstrate that the proposed regularized algorithms yield reconstructed images with superior quality, both visually and using objective distance metrics, to that of traditional decoders that use only the transmitted transform coefficients.
