Efficient, simple, and lossless methods for encoding and transmitting grey-scale and binary (B/W) pictures are described. The methods are such that an initial segment of the transmission permits the receiving device to construct an approximate picture; as transmission proceeds, the receiver progressively constructs better approximations. Some of the low-bandwidth channel usages include telebrowsing -where one wants to abort transmission of unwanted pictures as soon as they are recognized, and… CONTINUE READING
