Recently, ways to obtain a new generation of image-coding techniques have been proposed. The incorpordtion of the human visual system (IIVS) models and tools of the image analysis, such as segmentation, are two defining features of these techniques. In this paper, an application of the new approach to the classical linear predictive coding (LPC) of images and an HVS based segmentation technique for the second genera-tion coders will be discussed. In the case of LPC, the error image is encoded using an image decomposition approach and binary image coding. This improves the compression ratio keeping the quality nearly the same. The new segmentation technique can be used in single frame image coding applications to obtain acceptable images at extremely high compression rates.
