Xin Li, Louis J Kerofsky, Kristine Elizabeth Matthews: Scalable layered coding in a multi-layer, compound-image data transmission system. Sharp Laboratories of America, Marger Johnson & McCollom PC, May 24, 2005: US06898313 (38 worldwide citation)

A data coder prepares a frame of data for transmission over a data channel. The frame is first broken into a series of non-overlapping blocks. The blocks are analyzed to determine if they are a “picture” block or a “non-picture” block. Picture blocks are compressed to produce one or more layers of d ...
