Paper Abstract

In this paper, we present a new method to compress the information in an image, called MeshEZW. The proposed approach is based on the finite elements method, a mesh construction and a zerotree method. The zerotree method is an adaptive of the EZW algorithm with two new symbols for increasing the performance. These steps allow a progressive representation of the image by the automatic construction of a bitstream. The mesh structure is adapted to the image compression domain and is defined to allow video comrpession. The coder is described and some preliminary results are discussed.
