As the costs of digital signal processing and memory hardware are decreasing each year compared to those of transmission, it is increasingly economical to apply sophisticated source encoding techniques to reduce the transmission time for facsimile documents. With this intent, information lossy encoding schemes have been investigated in which the encoder is divided into two stages. Firstly, preprocessing, which removes redundant information from the original documents, and secondly, actual encoding of the preprocessed documents.
