  • 30. 22 F U N DA M E N TA L S In multimedia, we encounter values of several kinds that change continuously, either because Digitiz ation they originate in physical phenomena or because they exist in some analogue representation. For example, the amplitude (volume) of a sound wave varies continuously over time, as does the amplitude of an electrical signal produced by a microphone in response to a sound wave. The colour of the image formed inside a camera by its lens varies continuously across the image plane. As you see, we may be measuring different quantities, and they may be varying either over time or over space (or perhaps, as in the case of moving pictures, both). For this general discussion, we will follow tradition, and refer to the value we are measuring, whatever it may be, as a “signal”, not usually distinguishing between time-varying and space-varying signals. When we have a continuously varying signal, such as the one shown in Figure 2.2, both the value we measure, and the intervals at which we can measure it, can vary infinitesimally. In contrast, if we were to convert it to a digital signal, we would have to restrict both of these to a set of discrete values that could be represented in some fixed number of bits. That is, digitization – the process of converting a signal from analogue to digital form – consists of two steps: sampling, when we measure the signal’s value at discrete intervals, and quantization, whenFigure 2.2. An analogue signal we restrict the value to a fixed set of levels. Sampling and quantization can be carried out in either order; Figure 2.3 shows a signal being ÊสÑั­Þญ­ÞญÒา³ณ first sampled and then quantized. In the sampling step, you see the analogue continuous signal reduced to a sequence of equally spaced values; in the quantization step, some of these values are chopped off so that every one lies on one of the lines defining the allowed levels. These processes are normally carried out by special hardware devices, 16

  • 56. Compression You will learn, as we examine the individual media types in detail, that a characteristic propertyCompression of media data is that it occupies a lot of storage. This means, in turn, that it needs a lot of band- width when it is transferred over networks. Storage and bandwidth are limited resources, so the high demands of media data can pose a problem. The common response to this problem is to apply some form of compression, which means any operation that can be performed on data to reduce the amount of storage required to represent it. If data has been compressed, an inverse decompression operation will be required to restore it to a form in which it can be displayed or used. Software that performs compression and decompression is often called a codec (short for compressor/decompressor), especially in the context of video and audio. Compression algorithms can be divided into two classes: lossless and lossy. A lossless algorithm has the property that it is always possible to original data decompress data that has been compressed and retrieve an exact copy of the original data, as indicated in Figure 2.13. Any compression algo- rithm that is not lossless is lossy, which means that some data has been compress discarded in the compression process and cannot be restored, so that the decompressed data is only an approximation to the original, as shown in Figure 2.14. The discarded data will represent information that is decompress not significant, and lossy algorithms which are in common use do a remarkable job at preserving the quality of images, video and sound, compressed data even though a considerable amount of data has been discarded. Lossless Figure 2.13. Lossless compression algorithms are generally less effective than lossy ones, so for most multi- media applications some lossy compression will be used. However, for text the loss of even a single bit of information would be significant, so there is no such thing as lossy text compression. It may not be apparent that any sort of data can be compressed at all without loss. If no informa- tion is being discarded, how can space be saved? In the case of text, lossless compression works 26
