In Chapters 1 to 7, we have examined the core algorithms of the image and video compression standards without regard to their hardware implementation. However, ease of implementation and low processing requirements are among the key factors that influenced the final recommendations of the standards committees. In the past, the computational needs of intensive image-processing tasks were satisfied with expensive custom multiprocessor systems. However, the standards committees believed that it would be easier for the industry to accept the new standards if low-cost implementations were possible.
