Compression algorithms and image processing

By Josef Šimek


The method of image acquisition and processing has a decisive influence on the resulting form and size of the data, which represent the image. For the correct interpretation of the image, it is necessary to understand how the data are generated. This bachelor’s thesis deals with the problem of obtaining and modification of image data. The general procedures based on the mathematical and physical principles are analyzed. Attention is focused on closer study of JPEG and JPEG2000 compression algorithms, as effective tools for reducing the volume of image data. The purpose of this thesis is to create a JPEG video codec and to test its effectiveness in data compression. Furthermore, to find and implement a method for the suppression of blocking artifacts in compressed image, which greatly reduce its quality. The implementation will use MATLAB environment, which offers wide support for working with image data. In the final part we will compare the algorithms of JPEG and JPEG2000 in the created application. We will focus on the subjective and objective evaluation of the quality of compressed images. To work with JPEG2000 format the programs Kakadu and JPEG2000 Compressor will be used
