Abstract: In this paper we address the problem of efficiently encoding
textured images. We propose a fast wavelet packet compression
algorithm. The wavelet packet expansion exploits factorized
non-separable very fast filters, and is faster by a factor of 4 than a
regular convolution and decimation of the image with separable
one-dimensional filters. The selection of the best basis does not
require any iterative procedure. This algorithm provides a very
efficient implementation of the best basis algorithm. The wavelet
packet coefficients are organized by increasing frequency into
sequences of rapidly decreasing coefficients. The coefficients are
quantized with uniform quantization, and bitplane encoded. The
evaluation of the algorithm was performed on a large class of textured
images. The results indicate that this new fast wavelet packet coder
is competitive to, and often outperforms the best wavelet coding
algorithms, both visually and in term of the quadratic error.

An implementation of the algorithm is available on the web site.
