Loss Less Compression of Images Using Binary Plane, Difference and Huffman Coding (BDH Technique)
The History of image data compression started probably about a half of century ago with the works on predictive coding and variable length codes. The technological breakthrough that took place in 60's, 70's and 80's resulted in efficient compression algorithms that have been standardized in early 1990's and currently are in common use together with the improvements achieved during the last decade. These advances have brought substantial increase in efficiency of earlier basic techniques. Nevertheless, the last decade was also a period of strenuous search for new technologies of image data compression.
