This article describes a software development on image data reduction by using Canny edge detection and image segmentation in order to remove unnecessary data such as image background. Zlib Deflate compression algorithm is used to achieve an effective data reduction capability. This software is developed using MATLAB programming language and MATLAB GUI. Results show that the developed software can reduce the transmitted data size and increase

the frame rate.
