Discusses various "building blocks" of perceptual coding, including DCT, quantization, subband coding, VQ, wavelets and table-based compression, and shows how these interact in current compression schemes (e.g. JPEG). Video is still the area in which perceptual cues are least understood. Major research issues on the horizon are robustness, scalability, portability, and a unified theory of noise masking.
