Until the appearance of Image Communication, there was no international journal catering for the needs of the image communication field. Papers on the subject were scattered on a number of journal that saw image communication as an adjunct to their fields of interest. From its foundation, ImageCom was driven  by the need to provide the opposite view.

Leonardo has been the Image Communication Editor-in-Chief from the establishment of the Journal in 1989 until 1999 when Prof. Murat Tekalp of the University of Rochester took over.

Until a few years ago, Image Communication was distributed among Universities and Telecommunications or Broadcasting Company Labs, each addressing a component of the field. Now, the techniques and applications of image processing, television, graphics and graphic arts are converging. Emerging processing, distribution, and storage technologies are fostering widespread industrial attention. Narrow and Broadband ISDN, Satellite Channels, Digital Storage Media, Electronic Printing, the World Wide Web and the availability of inexpensive digital processing hardware are blurring the distinction between various aspects of visual communication and information systems. More powerful systems and new user needs, notably associated to higher levels of interactivity, motivate the coming out of new technology. The increasing amount of video information available requires analysis and description technology allowing to quickly and efficiently identifying visual content.  

“Image Communications” aims to create a forum for the advancement of theory and practice of image communication and stimulate cross-fertilisation between areas of a similar nature, which have traditionally remained separated. It will feature original research work, tutorial and review articles, and accounts of practical developments. Its scope extends to application areas as diverse as: interpersonal communication, TV and HDTV broadcasting, 3-D TV, telepresence, interactive visual communication, graphics communication, graphic arts, access to image data bases, image manipulation, image indexing and retrieval, etc. Technologies that allow practical implementation are also considered. They include: imaging technology, VLSI and special purpose processors, sensors and displays, image processing for new networks and recording media, etc.
