Patent Images

1. A system for producing compressed image data comprising:

  • i) an image data compressor;

    ii) an instruction interception module;

    iii) a graphics processor module (GPM) accessible by the instruction interception module;

    iv) memory accessible by the image data compressor and the GPM;

    such that operation of the system causes the system to perform at least the following steps;

    a) intercepting processor instructions by the instruction interception module;

    b) identifying at least one of the intercepted processor instructions having an influence on a co-ordinate associated with the image data;

    c) generating compression assistance data (CAD) or compression assistance instructions (CAI) or a combination thereof that are responsive to the identified graphics instruction, the CAD comprises information relating to the co-ordinate of at least one pixel of a plurality of pixels of step (d);

    d) processing at least one of the intercepted processor instructions by the GPM to generate a plurality of pixels to be stored in the memory; and

    e) processing at least a portion of the plurality of pixels using at least part of the CAD or at least part of the CAI or a combination thereof to generate compressed image data.
