I am working on a quantization algorithm for about 6 months. and
now I am at the stage when I have to compare what I have done to
what was done before ...
My question is:
" Is there a need to quantize to less than 256 colors ? "
Please, let me know what application require less than
256 color palette .
It was clear before, when we had VGA with only 16 colours
in high resolution modes. Now it seems like that the technology is
rather cheap and most video cards support 256 colors in 1024x768 mode.
Thanks in advance.
