The computing world has learned many new terms and concepts addressing compressed still-images, and motion-video. When image compression first appeared on the computing scene, it was believed that real-time decompression could only be done by dedicated hardware. Early attempts at software decompression of motion-video produced crude, low frame rate solutions displayed in a very small window not conforming to any standard. Within the last twelve months, relatively good quality software implementations of real-time, motion-video decompression have appeared on the scene. What do they imply for the hardware solutions? The future will offer much diversity, but along with it many challenges to be faced, problems to be solved, and issues to be resolved and resolved.
