Phase-shifting digital hologram compression has been mainly studied in the recording domain, where data possess a rather randomlike appearance, yielding reduced compression efficiency. We carry out the compression of such data in the reconstruction domain, which benefits from the spatial correlation of the data yielding, increased efficiency. Real holographic data are used to demonstrate the performance of the new approach. It is also shown that the reconstruction is not limited to the initially obtained view, as additional views can still be obtained with appropriate postprocessing.
