This paper address three different strategies (F-JPEG, F-DSC and F-YUV) for foveated image compression plus methods for the transmission of foveated image data. In place of simple subsampling for foveation, the proposed foveated compression strategies use varying compression ratios--- a low compression ratio centrally, and progressively increasing compression ratios towards the periphery.
