Re: LRPT Laboratory Bandwidth testing

Hello David and Fred,

Yes, internally small Jpg images (8x8) are transmitted (it's perhaps why it's a Low rate Picture Transmission and not a High rate).
I was wondering if it would not be possible to fill these lines of 8 pixels width with a set of "most probable pixels", taken into account the pixels at the frontier of these lines and the different derivative in the border zones of these lines. It would be an interesting mathematical game.

Hi David,

I don't think so, because they decode ad BMP's from AMIGOS. I convert
them to JPG's for the e-mail. I have noticed no difference.

Thanks and great day,

Thanks, Fred.

At least one references suggests it's JPEG data:

If so, it might be better to work in the JPEG space rather than go JPEG=>BMP=>JPEG. BMP is much more convenient for subsequent processing, of course.

I'm uncertain whether or not JPEG=>BMP decoding always produces the same results or whether some assumptions are made (beyond the tables included with the JPEG data) which affect the results.
