We propose an image coder that uses a fast algo- rithm for calculating the two-dimensional wavelet transforms for all circular translates of a N X N input image. The optimal translate for the decom- position is selected by using a quadtree search algo- rithm and a scale-separable cost criterion. Once the optimum translate has been identified, a modified wavelet tree is formed. The resulting wavelet coef- ficients are encoded using trellis-coded quantization.
