Abstract

Among the different modes of operations allowed in the current JPEG standard, the sequential and progressive modes are the most widely used. While the sequential JPEG mode yields essentially the same level of compression performance for most encoder implementations, the performance of progressive JPEG depends highly upon the designed encoder structure. This is due to the flexibility the standard leaves open in designing progressive JPEG encoders. In this paper, a rate-distortion optimized JPEG compliant progressive encoder is presented that produces a sequence of bit scans, ordered in terms of decreasing importance. Our encoder outperforms a baseline sequential JPEG encoder in terms of compression, significantly at medium bit rates, and substantially at low and high bit rates. Moreover, unlike baseline JPEG encoders, ours can achieve precise rate/distortion control. Good rate-distortion performance at low bit rates and precise rate control, provided by our JPEG compliant progressive encoder, are two highly desired features currently sought for JPEG-2000
