Images and videos are ubiquitous in our multimedia-rich environment today. We can capture photographs on a variety of devices, from inexpensive mobile phones to highly sophisticated cameras, spanning an impressive range in sensor pixel-count and picture resolution. We watch video content on displays ranging in size from handheld devices to gigantic movie screens. The resolution on these videos ranges from the grainy CIF (352 × 288) in CCTVs all the way up to 8K ultra high-definition (7680 × 4320) and beyond. If that is not impressive enough, devices routinely support high-quality streaming video content, while preserving the richness of spectral or color information. By some estimates, the global consumer electronics market is poised to be worth a mind-boggling trillion US dollars by 2020.
