A novel lossless image and video codec termed ViLoCoN is presented. ViLoCoN stands for Video Lossless Compression for NoCs (i.e. Network-on-Chips) as it is highly applicable to reduce power consumption and bandwidth of on-chip and inter chip interconnect in modern multimedia SoCs. ViLoCoN's encoder/decoder uses fewer gates (71% and 84%) as compared to previous lightweight encoders and decoders, respectively, and provides a higher compression ratio (by 31%) on average, as compared to the most lightweight predecessor.
