Subband coding (SBC) with vector quantization (VQ) has been shown to be an effective method for coding images at low bit rates. We split the image spectrum into seven nonuniform subbands. Threshold vector quantization (TVQ) and finite state vector quantization (FSVQ) methods are employed in coding the subband images by exploiting interband and intraband correlations. Our new SBC-FSVQ schemes have the advantages of the subband-VQ scheme while reducing the bit rate and improving the image quality. Experimental results are given and comparisons are made using our new scheme and some other coding techniques. In the experiments, it is found that SBC-FSVQ schemes achieve the best peak signal-to-noise ratio (PSNR) performance when compared to other methods at the same bit rate
