Burrows-Wheeler based JPEG
Computer Science Department, Bar-Ilan University, Ramat-Gan 52900, Israel
Recently, the use of the Burrows-Wheeler method for data compression has been expanded. A method of enhancing the compression efficiency of the common JPEG standard is presented in this paper, exploiting the Burrows-Wheeler compression technique. The paper suggests a replacement of the traditional Huffman compression used by JPEG by the Burrows-Wheeler compression. When using high quality images, this replacement will yield a better compression ratio. If the image is synthetic, even a poor quality image can be compressed better.
