1. A display system for displaying image data of an environment of a machine, the display system comprising:
an imaging device configured to:
generate image data of the environment of the machine;
store the image data in an uncompressed form; and
compress the image data, and generate signals containing the compressed image data;
a display screen communicably coupled to the imaging device, the display screen configured to:
receive the signals containing the compressed image data from the imaging device; and
display the compressed image data on the display screen;
wherein at least one of the imaging device and the display screen is configured to identify a region of interest in the image data of the environment of the machine;
wherein the imaging device is configured to transmit uncompressed image data for the identified region of interest to the display screen when the region of interest is identified by at least one of the imaging device and the display screen; and
wherein the display screen displays the uncompressed image data corresponding to the identified region of interest in an overlay manner on the compressed image data on the display screen.
