Owing to various emerging multimedia applications which create enormous amount of data traffic over limited channel bandwidth, dynamic bit allocation plays a significant role on achieving robust and/or optimum source coding performance. In this paper, we focus on pixel-based and perceptual-based dynamic bit allocations which have been widely exploited in many source coding algorithms and international audio/visual compression standards as well. Many fundamental facts of human auditory system have been effectively exploited in perceptual-based bit allocation for speech and audio signals. On the contrary, pixel-based bit allocation which is widely used in image and video coding has certain practical issues required to be addressed. We highlight these observed concerns, present an unified and optimum solution, and recommend a future direction.

A new bit allocation algorithm is derived for wavelet and octave subband source coding, subject to the Shannon rate-distortion bound, using a Lagrange multiplier optimization technique. A sequential form is developed from the derived direct form, for effectively reducing unassigned bits due to negative bit allocation and fixed bit-rate quantizers. The proposed sequential form algorithm is generalized and optimized to incorporate any given finite number of fixed bit-rate quantizers and is highly suitable for real-time applications and implementation. The bit allocation performance of the sequential Shannon-bound based algorithm is demonstrated through its application in image coding

Dynamic bit allocation directly impacts the overall coding performance in block transform (e.g., DCT, Hadamard, etc.) coding, subband coding, and wavelet coding. In very low bit rate coding (such as the evolving MPEG-4 standard), additional factors impacting the bit allocation process need to be identified and properly exploited to achieve optimal coding performance. In the paper, a generalized optimum dynamic bit allocation algorithm is presented. The algorithm is based on the Shannon rate-distortion bound and a weighted distortion criterion using a Lagrange multiplier optimization technique. The results look promising for applications in real-time multimedia communications
New properties of absolute moment block truncation coding (AMBTC) are presented with proof. The main purposes of this work are (1) to provide some fundamental insights into the AMBTC algorithm and (2) to show that AMBTC is a robust choice among the 1-bit quantizers considering both computational complexity and quantization error.< >
