technique is called compression and the resulting data is called compressed data.
The reverse process of reproducing the original data from compressed data is
called decompression and the resulting data is called decompressed data.
25. Data compression techniques may be lossless or lossy, symmetrical or
asymmetrical, and software 01 hardware implemented.
26. The commonly used lossless compression techniques are run-length coding
and variable-length coding.
27. The commonly used lossy compression techniques are predictive encoding
and transform encoding.
28. Some standard multimedia compression techniques are
• JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group) for still images
• MPEG (Motion Pictures Experts Group) video for digital video
• MPEG audio for digital audio
