Abstract

"The design goals for a data compression system are developed using previous studies as a cornerstone. Sampling theory is touched on with qualitative coverage of its effects. Consideration is given to various methods of data compression with the advantages and disadvantages of each noted. The requirement for buffering is discussed along with various methods that may be employed to achieve specific buffering goals. The impact of data reconstruction and how it may affect the choice of compression techniques is briefly covered. Selected compression algorithms and ways of increasing system effectiveness through alterations to their basic structures are described in detail. Implementation techniques are presented for a data compression system that can meet the previously developed design goals. The interrelations of various subsystems are described in quantitative terms. Constant emphasis is given throughout to ensure that the system is economical, practical and well within current hardware components and software techniques"--Abstract, page ii.
