Block truncation coding by using genetic algorithm


Vector quantization (VQ) is an important method of lossy image compression. The basic prerequisite of VQ is that the codebook must have representability to ensure the quality of the recovery image. In this paper, we propose a new codebook design approach using genetic algorithm. Our method will split a gray-level image into blocks of 4*4 size and simplify… (More)
