We propose a new multiple description method for wavelet transform coded images. The partitioning of the coefficients at the encoder is combined with concealment at the decoder to produce descriptions. An optimal concealment method for wavelet coefficients is derived based on statistical characteristics. Concealment in the LL subband is treated differently and is based on its smoothness property. We have designed a coder for wireless image transmission which emphasizes the need for source and channel coding interaction based on residual redundancy. Optimal channel rate allocation is derived depending upon source significance and channel state information. Simulations for wireless transmission have shown promising results.
