The optimal predictors of a lifting scheme in the general n-dimensional case are obtained and applied for the lossless compression of still images using first quincunx sampling and then simple row-column sampling. In each case, the efficiency of the linear predictors is enhanced nonlinearly. Directional postprocessing is used in the quincunx case, and adaptive-length postprocessing in the row-column case. Both methods are seen to perform well. The resulting nonlinear interpolation schemes… CONTINUE READING
