With the requirement to store and transmit information efficiently, an ever increasing number of uses of data compression techniques have been generated in diverse fields such as television, surveillance, remote sensing, medical processing, office automation, and robotics. Rapid increases in processing capabilities and the speed of complex integrated circuits make data compression techniques a prime candidate for application in the areas mentioned above. This report addresses, from a theoretical viewpoint, three major data compression techniques, Pixel Coding, Predictive Coding, and Transform Coding. It begins with a project description and continues with data compression techniques, focusing on Differential Pulse Code Modulation.
