Joseph G Earl, Michael D Moffitt: Method and apparatus for increasing information compressibility. Robert A Brown, August 23, 1994: US05341440 (88 worldwide citation)

A system for compressing information arranges unprocessed information into a plurality of data planes. The data planes are converted into a combined planar data output. The combined planar data output is created by regrouping data elements which make up the unprocessed information. The regrouping is ...

Wei ge Chen, Ming Chieh Lee: Multi-level run length coding for frequency-domain audio coding. Microsoft Corporation, Klarquist Sparkman Campbell Leigh & Whinston, April 24, 2001: US06223162 (86 worldwide citation)

A technique for entropy coding information relating to frequency domain audio coefficients. For portions of a frequency spectrum having a predominate value of zero, a multi-level run length encoder statistically correlates sequences of zero values with non-zero values and assigns variable length cod ...

Hamid Gharavi: Two-dimensional block scanning for subband image and video coding. Bell Communications Research, Leonard Charles Suchyta, Stephen M Gurey, January 4, 1994: US05276525 (83 worldwide citation)

A signal coder is disclosed with improved compression of pictorial data that has been decomposed into plural subbands through a two-dimensional quadrature-mirror decomposition (102). In each of the higher frequency bands, the decomposed samples are quantized and then partitioned (106, 110, 114), in ...

Isaac A Ajewole, Ralph Schaetzing: Tone-scale generation method and apparatus for digital x-ray images. Eastman Kodak Company, William F Noval, September 3, 1991: US05046118 (81 worldwide citation)

In any digital imaging system, the digital input signals must be converted to a visible image on some output material or medium. Because the range of this output medium is usually not the same as the input image range, care must be taken in converting the digital input signals into output signals. T ...
