What is rate distortion theory? - Compression Standard
What is rate distortion theory?
- Distortion theory is about trade-offs between the rate and distortion.
- It is applied for compression schemes.
- An average number of bits are utilized to represent each sample value.
- If the rate of bits is decreased it is known as increase in distortion.
- If the rate of bits to represent each value is increased it is known decrease in distortion.
