Most of conventional image coding algorithms have reduced spatial redundancies for compressing data. In our previous works, we have proposed a novel coding algorithm focused on luminance-chrominance (L-C) redundancies. This paper presents an improved coding algorithm by using both spatial correlation and L-C correlation in an opponent color space. First of all, an input color image is divided into a luminance component and two chromatic components in the opponent color space. The chromatic components are divided into regions, and each region is averaged for reducing spatial redundancies. In order to reduce the L-C redundancies, a ratio of chrominance to luminance, we call C/L component, was newly introduced. Finally the spatially averaged C/L components in each region and wavelet-coded luminance data are transmitted as compact code. The color image can be restored without degrading its sharpness by the multiplication of transmitted averaged C/L components to decoded luminance data. Moreover, the proposed coding algorithm has an option to optimize the C/L components in S-CIELAB visual space. This paper discusses the performances of proposed coding algorithm with experimental results for natural full color test images.

  • For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
