Parallels between orthogonal transforms and filter banks have been drawn before. Block orthogonal transform (BOT) is a special case of orthogonal transform where a nonover lapping window is used. In this paper we relate BOT’s to filter banks. Specifically, we show that any BOT can be shown as a perfect reconstruction filter bank, and any tree-structured perfect reconstruction filter bank or any orthonormal filter bank for which no filter length exceeds its decimation factor can be shown as a BOT. We then show that all conventional BOT’S map to uniform filter banks. A construction method to design a BOT from any nonuniform filter bank is presented, and finding an optimal tree structure (in the sense of transform coding gain) for a given source has also been discussed. Results show that the optimal nonuniform BOT outperforms uniform BOT’s having either the same number of bands or the same size in most cases.
