Vectors instead of pixels


If you believe the predictions of Philip Willis and John Patterson from the University of Bath in England, the age of pixels, at least in video compression algorithms, is coming to an end. Although the basic unit of raster images that the video consists of are still pixels, it has been known for a long time that there are  limitations that arise from them. For example, scaling to different, especially higher resolution, makes image quality turn to crap and increases perceptual artifacts with no gain in quality of information.
