A fast, degradation-free solution for the DCT block extraction problem is proposed. The problem is defined as extracting a DCT block from a DCT compressed frame composed of DCT blocks. This problem is encountered in both video/image manipulations in the compressed domain and transcodecs, for example, converting from MPEG to Motion JPEG. Traditionally, solutions involve using the pixel domain manipulation or Chang's (1992) algorithm with approximations. The new solution expands Chang's algorithms, takes full advantage of a fast DCT algorithm, and exploits characteristics of the input DCT blocks without any approximation. The new DCT block extraction achieves 70% performance improvement without any degradation of image quality compared with the conventional solutions.
