GOVQ ( Gain and Offset Vector Quantization)
Real time image processing is dominated by transform based coding.
We, however, are interested in looking
at Vector Quantization as means of achieving better performance/price gains.
VQ faces many obstacles in real-time applications due to the large overhead in
the encoder. We are investigating ways to reduce this bottleneck by
combining both gain and offset terms to VQ.
This comparably small Coder and Decoder will enable sending video images
across telephone lines consuming minimal power.
