Lossless or near-lossless video compression with a certain maximum absolute reconstruction error is required in many professional applications like archiving or medical imaging. However, lossless coding resulting in rather high bit rates and near-lossless coding being traditionally used and especially optimized for still image coding prevents these techniques from practical application. Consequently, this paper proposes a system for scalable lossy to near-lossless video compression, where the inter picture correlations are exploited by the base layer codec and near-lossless enhancement layer compression delivers the required final reconstruction fidelity in terms of maximum absolute reconstruction error. For the proposed near-lossless enhancement layer codec we extended the Sample-based weighted prediction for Enhancement Layer Coding (SELC) scheme, and the HEVC reference software is used for base layer coding. The experimental results show significant average savings compared to both JPEG-LS single layer coding (27%) and also JPEG-LS for enhancement layer coding (about 14 percentage points).
