Recently, sparsification scale-spaces have been obtained as a sequence of inpainted images by gradually removing known image data . Thus, these scale-spaces rely on spatial sparsity . In the present paper, we show that sparsification of the co-domain, the set of admissible grey values, also constitutes scale-spaces with induced hierarchical quantisation techniques . These quantisation scale-spaces are closely tied to information theoretical measures for coding cost, and therefore particularly interesting for inpainting-based compression . Based on this observation, we propose a sparsification algorithm for the grey-value domain that outperforms uniform quantisation as well as classical clustering approaches.
