ABSTRACT

Recently, in the mobile device, the increase of the need for encoding and decoding of high-resolution images requires an efficient implementation of the image codec. This paper proposes a time-optimized color conversion method for the JPEG decoder, which reduces the number of calculations in the color conversion by the rearrangement of arithmetic operations being possible due to the linearity of the IDCT and the color conversion matrices and brings down the time complexity of the color conversion itself by the integer mapping replacing floating-point operations to the optimal fixed-point shift and addition operations, eventually reducing the time complexity of the JPEG decoder. And the proposed method compensates a decline of image quality incurred by the quantification error of the operation arrangement and the integer mapping by using the multi-mode chrominance reconstruction. The performance evaluation performed on the development platform of embedded systems showed that, compared to previous color conversion methods, the proposed method greatly reduces the image decoding time, minimizing the distortion of decoded images.
