The exchange of still color images of all quality levels between homes and businesses over the information superhighway promises to bring an exciting new array of services and functions to consumers that will spawn entirely new businesses. The success of these new businesses will depend on the communication and delivery of a value proposition to the customer that is both timely and desired. This will in turn depend on the establishment of standards, protocols, and architectures that produce both economies of scale and the flexibility to serve the widest markets. This article discusses some of the color and image aspects of those standards and architectures, with specific reference to the pixel and image processing functionalities required to manage the BCD's or bits, colors, and dots of such systems.
