Monro Donald Martin: Data compression. Ayscough Visuals, Monro Donald Martin, MAGGS Michael Norman, March 24, 2005: WO/2005/027049 (20 worldwide citation)


A method of data compression, for example for images or audio signals, comprises encoding the data using a transform such as a wavelet transform or a DCT, grouping the transform coefficients by most significant bit, and/or bit value, and transmitting them group by group. Where the transform uses a c ...
