CREW is a "reversible" wavelet and bit-plane lossless and lossy image
compression system. It has been used with 1-12 bit deep images (the
syntax provides for up to 256 bands of up to 255 bits deep). CREW is
well suited for multi-resolution applications and client/server
applications. The emphesis with CREW is flexibilty without sacrificing
compression performance. The feature set includes
This talk will describe the CREW system, exposing the support for the above features. Discussion of the codestream syntax and the future for this technology will also be included.
A short introduction to the RICOH California Research Center will also be given.
