A new algorithm for allocating a given bit rate to different image tiles in the JPEG2000 encoding system is proposed. The algorithm outperforms other approaches commonly used in implementations. The new algorithm is suitable when information content is not equally distributed across the image. It is based on the computation of an index of the information content of each tile. To implement the proposed approach, we modified JasPer, a free software-based JPEG2000 coder implementation (Adams, M.D. and Kossentini, F., Proc. IEEE Int. Conf. on Image Process., vol.2, p.53-6, 2000). The experimentation was carried out on a subset of the JPEG2000 test images. Experimental results are reported, showing the PSNR of the decompressed images to be better than the one produced with the traditional approach, when the information content is not equally distributed across the image, and to be comparable to that of the traditional approach, when the information distribution is quite uniform.
