Sample text

If the data to be compressed is analog (such as a voltage that varies with time), quantization is employed to digitize it into numbers (normally integers). This is referred to as analog-to-digital (A/D) conversion. If the integers generated by quantization are 8 bits each, then the entire range of the analog signal is divided into 256 intervals and all the signal values within an interval are quantized to the same number. If 16-bit integers are generated, then the range of the analog signal is divided into 65,536 intervals.

Approaches to Compression At first it seems that this method does not make any assumptions about the input data. Specifically, it does not pay attention to any symbol frequencies. A little thinking, however, shows that because of the nature of the sliding window, the LZ77 method always compares the look-ahead buffer to the recently-input text in the search buffer and never to text that was input long ago (which has therefore been flushed out of the search buffer). Thus, the method implicitly assumes that patterns in the input data occur close together.

Does method (b) have any disadvantage? 13b, use RLE to compress it, first row by row, then column by column. Describe the results in detail. Lossy RLE Image Compression. It is possible to achieve better compression if short runs are ignored. Such a method loses information when compressing an image, but this is sometimes acceptable. ) A lossy run-length encoding algorithm should start by asking the user for the longest run that can be ignored. If the user specifies 3, then the program merges all runs 46 1.
