While conventional DCT outputs real numbers and it is not suitable for lossless coding of images, the integer DCT (Int-DCT) outputs integer numbers and can serve as a lossless coding and lossy coding compatible to the conventional DCT. Recently, our group has proposed an optimum assignment method of word length of multipliers in the Int-DCT assuming(More)
SUMMARY In this paper, we propose a new one-dimensional (1D) integer discrete cosine transform (Int-DCT) for unified lossless/lossy image compression. The proposed 1D Int-DCT is newly designed to reduce rounding effects by minimizing number of rounding operations. The proposed Int-DCT can be operated not only lossless coding for a high quality decoded image(More)
Recently, the integer DCT (Int-DCT), which has the rounding operations in the lifting structure, is attracting many researchers' attention as an effective method for DCT based lossy / lossless unified coding. So far, focuses of the previous reports relevant to the Int-DCT have been limited to a few topics such as how to reduce the number of multipliers with(More)
The lifting structured wavelet transform (lifting wavelet) attracts researchers' attention as a key technology to a lossless and lossy unified coding system of digital image data. For VLSI circuit implementation, multiplier coefficients in the transform must be truncated into finite word length binary values. This report investigates how to appropriately(More)
In this report, we propose lossless/lossy coding gain as a new objective criterion to theoretically evaluate lossless and lossy coding performance of the lossless/lossy wavelet (LLW). The proposed lossless/lossy coding gain consists of three parameters: " lossless coding gain " , " quantization-lossy coding gain " and " rounding errors ". Performances of 15(More)
This report proposes a new coding method, which realizes lossless, near-lossless and lossy coding with a unified single algorithm. The method is based on a lifting-structured lossless DCT, which maps an "integer" input vector to also an "integer" output vector. The proposed method can be used as not only a high performance "lossless" encoder but also a(More)
In this report, we propose a non-separable two-dimensional (2D) Lossless Symmetric Short Kernel Filter (L-SSKF) for image compression. Filter characteristics of our proposed L-SSKF are the same as those of conventional 2D L-SSKF based on applying 1D L-SSKF twice but our coding performance is better due to reduction of rounding effects. Simulation results(More)

In this report, a digital image data compression method which has two modes – " losslesss " mode and " lossy " mode – and also " progressive " functionality is proposed. The coding system can be optimized for an arbitrary input image signal under the lossless / lossy unified coding gain introduced here.
