High bit-depth image compression with application to seismic data Conference Paper uri icon


  • © 2016 IEEE. Inspired by the high performance of High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC), this paper reports our work on applying the ideas of HEVC intra coding to compression of high-depth images such as 32 bits per pixel (b/p) seismic data. Compared to a licensed commercial wavelet-based codec that is currently used for seismic image compression, which performs on par with JPEG-XR, our new image codec significantly improves the PSNR vs. compression ratio performance. The codec's subject performance is rated by geologist as highly satisfactory.
