Abstract

An approach is described for exploiting the tradeoffs between source and channel coding in the context of image transmission. The source encoder employs two-dimensional (2-D) block transform coding using the discrete cosine transform (DCT). This technique has proven an efficient and readily implementable source coding technique in the absence of channel errors. In the presence of channel errors, however, the performance degrades rapidly requiring some form of error control protection if reasonable quality image reconstruction is to be achieved. This channel coding can be extremely wasteful of channel bandwidth if not applied judiciously. The approach described here provides a rationale for combined source-channel coding which provides improved quality image reconstruction without sacrificing transmission bandwidth.
