An image processing method is described for the hierarchical storage and display of high resolution digital images in a multiuse environment. The method makes reduced resolution versions of the original image available for quick display on video monitors while providing access to the full resolution ...

Majid Rabbani, Paul W Melnychuck: Method and associated apparatus for encoding bitplanes for improved coding efficiency. Eastman Kodak Company, Peyton C Watkins, August 15, 1995: US05442458 (83 worldwide citation)

An encoding method is described for image bitplanes whereby an arithmetic coder using conditioning contexts based on pixels from both the current bitplane and previously decoded bitplanes is employed. For the same number of contexts (which is important for minimizing memory usage), the method provid ...

Michael J Barry, Paul W Melnychuck, John A Weldy: Modified huffman encode/decode system with simplified decoding for imaging systems. Eastman Kodak Company, Edward Dugas, July 13, 1993: US05227789 (53 worldwide citation)

The K most frequently occurring symbols in an image represented by an alphabet of N symbols are mapped to a set of K codewords. The length of each codeword is an inverse function of the frequency of occurrence of the corresponding symbol in the image and the longest codeword is of length d bits. The ...
