—This paper describes and analyzes JPIP-W, an innovative proposal for the interactive transmission of JPEG2000 images on the Internet. JPIP-W is an extension of JPIP, the current JPEG protocol proposed for interactive JPEG2000 image browsing. One of the JPIP characteristics of greatest interest is its ability to use the Web for retrieving images. However,(More)
—Hyperspectral data lossy compression has not yet achieved global acceptance in the remote sensing community, mainly because it is generally perceived that using compressed images may affect the results of posterior processing stages. This possible negative effect, however, has not been accurately characterized so far. In this letter, we quantify the impact(More)
In this work several different strategies for image compression and progressive transmission are analyzed and evaluated. It will be shown that the simplest wavelet transform (Unitary Sequential Transform, UST) with a spatial predictor (U(S+P)T) followed by the so-called Set Partitioning In Hierarchical Trees (SPIHT) coder is a very good lossless compressor(More)
This work presents a rigorous and objective evaluation of two progressive image transmission techniques in a framework of telemicroscopy of biological specimens. First of all, a Lossless Progressive Image Codec (LPIC) which is based on a specific wavelet transform and an efficient encoding method is introduced. This system is then compared to the standard(More)
This paper proposes an efficient prefetching strategy for interactive remote browsing of sequences of high resolution JPEG 2000 images. As a result of the inherent latency of client-server communication, the experiments of this study prove that a significant benefit, can be achieved, in terms of both quality and responsiveness, by anticipating certain data(More)
A wealth of intriguing properties emerge in the seemingly simple system composed of the band insulators LaAlO(3) and SrTiO(3) such as a two-dimensional electron gas, superconductivity and magnetism. In this paper, we review the current insight obtained from first principles calculations on the mechanisms governing the behaviour of thin LaAlO(3) films on(More)
This papers studies a novel prefetching scheme for the remote browsing of sequences of high resolution JPEG 2000 images. Using this scheme, an user is able to select randomly any of the remote images for its analysis, repeating this process with other images after some undefined time. Our solution has been proposed in a low bit-rate communication context(More)
