JPEG-2000 is the new image compression standard currently under development by ISO/IEC. Part I of this standard provides a `baseline' compression technology appropriate for grayscale and color imagery. Part II of the standard will provide extensions that allow for more advanced coding options, including the compression of multiple component imagery. Several different multiple component compression techniques are currently being investigated for inclusion in the JPEG-2000 standard. In this paper we apply some of these techniques toward the compression of HYDICE data. Two decorrelation techniques, 3D wavelet and Karhunen-Loeve Transform (KLT), were used along with two quantization techniques, scalar and trellis-coded (TCQ), to encode two HYDICE scenes at five different bit rates (4.0, 2.0, 1.0, 0.5, 0.25 bits/pixel/band). The chosen decorrelation and quantization techniques span the range from the simplest to the most complex multiple component compression systems being considered for inclusion in JPEG-2000. This paper reports root-mean-square-error (RMSE) and peak signal-to-noise ratio (PSNR) metrics for the compressed data. A companion paper that follows reports on the effects of these compression techniques on exploitation of the HYDICE scenes.
