A noval novel technique is described for high speed color conversions for JPEG-compressed images. The color conversion is processed in the transform domain instead of the traditional spatial domain. Only the input DC coefficients of the multiple color components are processed through the traditional table lookup to create output DC coefficients. Given each output color component's DC value, the linearity of its 63 AC coefficients is determined and their transform domain scaling functions are looked up in a 1-D table as a function of only the component output DC term. For n-dimensional input color space to m-dimensional output color space conversion, n component blocks create m output blocks. These blocks can be inverse DCTed to create spatial domain data or requantized and entropy encoded to create JPEG compressed data. Abort criteria also have been developed to determine when the traditional spatial domain interpolation needs to be done.

  • For more than 25 years, NIP has been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in non-impact and digital printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems, including drop-on-demand ink jet, wide format ink jet, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based electrophotographic printers, production digital printing systems, and thermal printing systems, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields.

    Since 2005, NIP has been held in conjunction with the Digital Fabrication Conference.
