$12.00 + tax (Refund Policy)

We present a newimage compression technique called “DjVu” that is specifically geared towards the compression of scanned documents in color at high revolution. DjVu enable any screen connected to the Internet to access and display images of scanned pages while faithfully reproducing the font, color, drawings, pictures, and paper texture. With DjVu, a typical magazine page in color at 300dpi can be compressed down to between 40 to 60 KB, approximately 5 to 10 times better than JPEGfor a similar level of subjective quality. A real-time, memory efficient version of the decoder is available as a plug-in for popular web browsers.

More about this publication?
  • CIC is the premier annual technical gathering for scientists, technologists, and engineers working in the areas of color science and systems, and their application to color imaging. Participants represent disciplines ranging from psychophysics, optical physics, image processing, color science to graphic arts, systems engineering, and hardware and software development. While a broad mix of professional interests is the hallmark of these conferences, the focus is color. CICs traditionally offer two days of short courses followed by three days of technical sessions that include three keynotes, an evening lecture, a vibrant interactive (poster) papers session, and workshops. An endearing symbol of the meeting is the Cactus Award, given each year to the author(s) of the best interactive paper; there are also Best Paper and Best Student Paper awards.
