As networking technologies evolve, the ability to support the low-latency transmission of lossless video for applications such as scientific visualization or medical imaging will continue to become more important. With all the research focused on lossless and near-lossless image compression, little gains in compression performance have been achieved over the last decade. In this paper, we introduce a system that provides comparable compression ratios to current lossless compression techniques but makes it more amenable to network transmission and playback. Working with computer graphics researchers, this system provides the appropriate tradeoff of constraints and performance for their needs.
