Published online Nov 4. The Lossless Image Compressor 3.

The software is simply an image decoding engine that decodes the compressed images and generates viewable image data. In order to validate the performance of the proposed lossless compression algorithm in a real-world scenario, it is employed inside a capsule endoscopy prototype. Compression with other compression algorithms. Open in a separate window. It can be seen from Figure 4 that, after converting to YEF, there is less change in pixel values in chrominance E and F components of YEF color space than RGB components, which indicates that less information or entropy is contained there and these two components can be compressed heavily.

The differences of luminance component compressuon encoded in Golomb-Rice code and the differences of chrominance components are encoded in unary code.

If there was any error, then it requests the transmitter to resend the data-packet again. The results show that, compared with all other existing works, the proposed algorithm offers a solution to wireless capsule endoscopy with lossless and yet cmpression level of compression. As a result, the DPCM is a good choice.

The overall block diagram of the capsule is shown in Figure 8. So, in auto acknowledgement mode, generally no data loss happens.

As a result, we choose to use a 2. National Center for Biotechnology InformationU. This phenomenon can be noticed from Table 2. A lossless predictive encoder, known as differential pulse coded modulation DPCM is used. Reduced entropy will cause higher compression ratio in the chrominance planes.

So, the compressor should be able to accept input pixels coming in raster scan fashion which will make it compatible with commercial image sensors. So, the compression algorithm should be of low complexity and consume low power when implemented in hardware.

While lossy compression algorithms for capsule endoscopy are in abundance, their lossless counterpart is only a few. Another possible solution to the problem is to use two buffer memory of total size 2 Sso that while the compressor works with pixels of one buffer, the new pixels continuously coming from the image losslesa are stored in the other buffer.

An improved lossless image compression algorithm LOCO-R

A brief discussion on both types of compression is given below. Captured NBI images from live pig’s intestine: So, we focus on algorithms that require less memory. As the input NBI images are grayscale, only the luminance Y component is compressed and transmitted.

In [ 20 ], our group proposed a lossless image compressor based on YUV color space. The CR of the images in the real experiments is similar to the results found during simulation.

Several in-vivo and ex-vivo trials using pig’s intestine have been conducted using the prototype to validate the performance of the proposed lossless compression algorithm. The results are summarized in Table 2where it is seen that, in general, the difference in pixel dX with respect to the adjacent left pixel is very small in endoscopic images compared to that of standard images.

The chrominance components are not sampled for NBI images and pseudo color is added later on the images using computer software. The differential values of luminance component are encoded in Golomb-Rice code [ 6 ] where the differential values of chrominance components are encoded in unary code.
