Vector Quantization Using Reflections of Triangular Subcodevectors

By Vishnu Makkapati and Pravas Mahapatra


The design of a codebook consisting of codevectors is the goal of Vector Quantization (VQ) schemes. This solution is not unique and many variants of VQ have been proposed. VQ suffers from computational and memory complexities that increase with the size of codebook and codevector dimensions. The lack of a universal codebook that works across different class of images necessitates the transmission of the codebook along with the codevector indices. This paper proposes a novel method of vector quantization using reflections of triangular ubcodevectors. This method jointly reduces the memory and computational resources required for VQ. Numerical results are presented for the proposed scheme in comparison to a traditional VQ method and a method based on reflections
