    Hi There, new here!

    Hello to all,

    Just found this forum today, I am so glad too. I have recently started a Research Masters on Compound image compression. I look forward to reading as much as i can here.
    Thought i would introduce myself first before i dig in!

    Cheers,

    C

    Welcome! Glad to have you among us.

    Perhaps you can introduce yourself a little further. What are you areas of interest? Besides image compression, of course. Lossless? Lossy?
    What are your skills? Do you master any programming language?

    To get acquainted with data compression in general, I recommend this book:

    Hi Gonzalo,

    So I recently graduated with a Bachelors of Engineering(Hons) in Electronic Engineering. Im coming at this project fresh, though I have studied some Information theory. I have basic level coding skills in c, c++ and java but hope to really work on that.
    Thank you for the recommendation, I will definitely look into it.
    I hope to implement an efficient algorithm that can incorporate both lossy compression (for pictorial screen content) and close to lossless for text and graphic content. a primary objective is to save on Bandwidth (and of course, reproduce a screen with comparable visual quality to H.264, etc).

    Cheers,

    Conor
