Abstract : This research focuses on these three areas: (a) formulation of alternative architectural concepts for image bandwidth compression, i.e., the formulation of components and schematic diagrams which differ from conventional digital bandwidth compression schemes by being implemented by various optical computation methods; (b) simulation of optical processing concepts for image bandwidth compression, so as to gain insight into typical performance parameters and elements of system performance sensitivity; and (c) maturation of optical processing for image bandwidth compression until the overall state of optical methods in image compression becomes equal to that of digital image compression.
