In this paper, a method to reach multiresolution VQ is proposed. A reordering process of color vectors from the codebook is performed. This yields to obtain an index image very close to the initial luminance image that can be obtained from any color image, but at a lower resolution. That way, the VQ technique can be applied once again on this new index image. In other words, a hierarchical and multiresolution VQ is defined. At each stage of the VQ compressed image, one is able to reconstruct it using the initial color codebook and the index one.

A comparison of the proposed method and classical Hierarchical VQ (HVQ) scheme at different compression levels is performed to judge the performance and the robustness of the hybrid method. B oth objective and subjective measures are used.

This work is a preliminary work to compress high dimension images at different levels.

More about this publication?
  • Started in 2002 and merged with the Color and Imaging Conference (CIC) in 2014, CGIV covered a wide range of topics related to colour and visual information, including color science, computational color, color in computer graphics, color reproduction, volor vision/psychophysics, color image quality, color image processing, and multispectral color science. Drawing papers from researchers, scientists, and engineers worldwide, DGIV offered attendees a unique experience to share with colleagues in industry and academic, and on national and international standards committees. Held every year in Europe, DGIV papers were more academic in their focus and had high student participation rates.
