This paper presents a comparison of H.264/AVC (Advanced Video Coding) based algorithms for compound images that contain text and natural images. Considered the problem of compressing compound images with a novel idea of using a single coder for compressing all the content types, the authors investigate the algorithm proposed by two models ZQ-CIC and D-CIC models. The coders presented in this paper are very effective for compound documents because of its intra frame prediction mode. When using these coders, it is possible to improve significantly the quality of text regions, with little to negligible losses to the pictorial regions.
