Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


We propose a JPEG based image compression technique to achieve color scalability with two levels of color resolutions namely 24-bit and 8-bit. This algorithm generates one full color (24-bit) compressed image bitstream with a subset of the bitstream corresponding to an 8-bit color approximation of the same image. This technique provides the capability to decode a compressed color image into 24 bits or 8 bits color device at a reduced computational and storage costs.
