Despite its age, JPEG (formally, Rec. ITU-T T.81 - ISO/IEC 10918-1) is still the omnipresent image file format for lossy compression of photographic images. While its rate-distortion performance is not competitive with state-of-the-art schemes like JPEG 2000 or HEVC, manifold techniques have been developed over the years to improve its compression performance. This article provides a short review of the known technologies and evaluates them on the basis of the JPEG XT demo implementation…

Digital Pictures: Representation, Compression and Standards
The text's new chapters feature examples and questions designed to stimulate greater understanding of the topics which describe basic aspects of the JBIG algorithm and different JPEG operating modes; some methodologies used for video codecs operating at subprimary bit-rates; a generic coding standard that can be used in many digital video implementations; and the main characteristics of HDTV.
The method treats each DCT coefficient as an approximation to the local response of a visual "channel" and estimates the quantization matrix for a particular image that yields minimum bit rate for a given total perceptual error, or minimum perceptual error for agiven bit rate.
