Lifting scheme based integer transforms are very powerful tools to construct lossless coding schemes. These transforms such as the integer fast fourier transform (IntFFT) and the integer modified discrete cosine transform (IntMDCT) are integer approximations of the original floatingpoint transforms, and hence there is an approximation error in the transform domain. This paper will propose structures for improved integer transforms in terms of improved approximation accuracy and computational efficiency. Experimental results will show that clear improvements in these two points are achieved in lossless audio coding.
