Discrete Cosine Transform (DCT)
The Discrete Cosine Transform (DCT) is a mathematical algorithm that converts a series of samples of a signal, typically in the time domain, into another domain called the frequency or spectral domain. It's commonly used for data compression and image/video coding applications such as JPEG and MPEG standards.
The DCT works by multiplying the input sequence with specific cosine functions that are pre-defined and then summing up these products to obtain a new series of values, which represent the frequency components of the original signal. The main advantage of the DCT over other transforms like Fourier Transform is its ability to handle non-stationary signals (i.e., signals with varying statistical properties) more effectively due to its localized basis functions.
In simple terms, the DCT can be thought of as a way to break down an image or video into different frequency components and then compress them without losing too much information. This compression technique is essential for efficient transmission and storage of digital media files over the internet or on devices with limited memory capacity.
