## Basic theory - trade-off between bit rate and distortion.

## Vector quantization (VQ).

- A indices of set of representative blocks can be used to code an image, yielding good compression. Requires training.

## Wavelet Compression.

- An image can be decomposed into a low resolution version and the detail needed to recover the original. Sending most significant bits of the wavelet coded yields excellent compression.
