This paper studies a progressive image transmission technique over waveform channels. The channel optimized vector quantization codec (COVQ) (Farvardin and Vaishampayan 1991) is applied to the image wavelet coefficients creating a robust progressive image transmission technique that mitigates the effects of a noisy channel on the reconstructed image. In order to evaluate the performance of our proposal, a Gaussian and slow-fading Rayleigh channel model, with several different values of channel signal to noise ratio (CSNR) were simulated in our experiments. Examples show a significant visual improvement of our application compared to other progressive image transmission techniques.
