Interpolative vector quantization has been devised to alleviate the visible block structure of coded images plus the sensitive codebook problems produced by a simple vector quantizer. In addition, the problem of selecting color components for color picture vector quantization is discussed. Computer simulations demonstrate the success of this new coding technique for color image compression at approximately 0.3 bits/ pel. Some background information on vector quantization is also provided.
