Thanks to advances in sensor technology, today we have many applications (space-borne imaging, medical imaging, etc.) where images of large sizes are generated. Straightforward application of wavelet techniques for above images involves certain difficulties. Embedded coders such as EZW and SPIHT require that the wavelet transform of the full image be buffered for coding. Since the transform coefficients also require storing in high precision, buffering requirements for large images become prohibitively high. In this paper, we first devise a technique for embedded coding of large images using zero trees with reduced memory requirements. A 'strip buffer' capable of holding few lines of wavelet coefficients from all the subbands belonging to the same spatial location is employed. A pipeline architecure for a line implementation of above technique is then proposed. Further, an efficient algorithm to extract an encoded bitstream corresponding to a region of interest in the image has also been developed. Finally, the paper describes a strip based non-embedded coding which uses a single pass algorithm. This is to handle high-input data rates. (C) 2002 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
