In this research, we improve Shapiro's EZW algorithm by performing the vector quantization (VQ) of the wavelet transform coefficients. The proposed VQ scheme uses different vector dimensions for different wavelet subbands and also different codebook sizes so that more bits are assigned to those subbands that have more energy. Another feature is that the vector codebooks used are tree-structured to maintain the embedding property. Finally, the energy of these vectors is used as a prediction parameter between different scales to improve the performance. We investigate the performance of the proposed method together with the 7 - 9 tap bi-orthogonal wavelet basis, and look into ways to incorporate loseless compression techniques.
