    We present a novel nonuniform quantization compression technique-histogram quantization-for digital holograms of 3-D real-world objects. We exploit a priori knowledge of the distribution of the values in our data. We compare this technique to another histogram based approach: a modified version of Max's algorithm that has been adapted in a straightforward manner to complex-valued 2-D signals. We conclude the compression procedure by applying lossless techniques to our quantized data. We demonstrate improvements over previous results obtained by applying uniform and nonuniform quantization techniques to the hologram data
