Lossless HRV data

David J Taylor GM8ARV 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 🇪🇺

For 24 hours from 1300 today, EUMETSAT are transmitting HRV with
lossless Wavelet compression.

My initial impressions are:

- even with JPEG (quality 82) there was a noticeable improvement on
images which were histogram equalised to make full use of the
dynamic range.

- I needed to use PNG save format rather than JPEG to see the full
extent of the differences

- there is a definite improvement - detail is now visible that could
not be seen before and the blockiness is completely gone.

- it also shows that if you use Save visible as JPEG in the MSG Data
Manager then you maybe need a higher quality setting than the
default value of 82.

- The greater bandwidth consumed is obvious on the graphs! The 30-
minute average has gone from something over 108KB/s to around
