This paper presents a novel framework to achieve scalable multi-view image coding. As open loop operation, the wavelet lifting scheme for geometric filtering has been exploited to overcome the limitation of SNR scalability and to attain view scalability. The essential key for achieving the spatial scalability is the in-band prediction. It removes correlations among subbands level-by-level via shift-invariant references obtained by overcomplete discrete wavelet transforms (ODWT). Additionally, the proposed disparity compensated view filtering is allowed to exploit the different filters and estimation parameters for each resolution level. The experiments show comparable results at full resolution and the significant improvement at coarser resolution over the conventional spatial prediction scheme.
