Processing architecture for digital camera has been built on JPEG2000 compression system. Concerns are to minimize processing power and data traffic inside (data-bandwidth at interface) and out-side (compression efficiency) of camera system. Key idea is to decompose Bayer matrix data given from image sensor into four half-resolution planes instead of interpolating to three full-resolution planes. With a new compression standard, JPEG2000, capable of handling multi-component image, the four-plane representation can be encoded into a single bit-stream. The representation saves data traffic between image reconstruction stage and compression stage by 1/3 to 1/2 compared to the Bayer-interpolated data. Not only reduced processing power prior to and during compression but also competitive or superior compression efficiency is achieved. On reconstruction to full resolution is Bayer-interpolation and/or edge-enhancement required as a post-processing to a standard decoder, while half or smaller resolution image is reconstructed without a post-processing. For mobile terminals with an integrated camera (image reconstruction in camera h/w and compression in terminal processor), this scheme helps to accommodate increased resolution with all the limited data-bandwidth from camera to terminal processor and limited processing capability.
