A universal representation for perceptual weighted zerotree coding algorithm is developed, in which the perceptual weighted zerotree coding is decomposed into two separate parts, i.e. visual weighting and zerotree representation, which can be realized independently. Prior to zerotree processing, the extracted full-tree is weighted by using a visual weighting matrix. Any zerotree algorithm like EZW, SPIHT and zerotree space-frequency quantization can be used to encode the weighted coefficients of wavelet transform. In other words, any previous algorithm without perceptual weighting can be easily extended to form a new perceptual coder using the proposed framework. Several examples of visual weighting matrices are given to show the effect of the new method.
