Abstract

The development of a new error-free digital image compression algorithm is discussed. Without the help of any statistics information of the images being processed, this algorithm achieves average bits-per-word ratios near the entropy of the neighboring pixel differences. Because this algorithm does not involve statistical modeling, generation of a code book, or long integer–floating point arithmetics, it is simpler and, therefore, faster than the studied statistics codes, such as the Huffman code or the arithmetic code.
