The transmission of a picture was approached from the point of view of statistics and information theory. A picture was approximated by the processes of sampling and quantizing the video waveform that represents the intensity of the picture as it is scanned. Transmission of each sample of the picture is reduced to the problem of sending a number that indicates which of the 32 possible intensity levels occurred in that sample. Equipment that measures the second-order probability distribution of… CONTINUE READING
