Abstract

Embedded zerotree wavelet (EZW) coding, introduced by J.M. Shapiro and improved in the SPIHT codec of A. Said and W.A. Pearlman, is a very effective wavelet image coding method. One main concept in EZW and SPIHT is the exploitation of self-similarity across different scales of the image wavelet transform to effectively compress the image data. This paper presents an efficient and fully embedded zerotree wavelet image codec that achieves a comparable and even better performance than SPIHT by exploiting only the self-similarity within the scales (intraband self-similarity). The proposed algorithm results in a simpler implementation and in a more efficient representation of the ordering information than SPIHT. Coding results are presented to illustrate the performance of the proposed embedded wavelet image codec.
