Vector quantization (VQ) is a fundamental technique for image compression. But it takes time to search for a similar codeword in a codebook. Thus, the codebook search is one of the major bottlenecks in VQ. We propose a new search algorithm which is used to speed up both the codebook generation and the encoding. We call it the diagonal axes method (DAM). This new algorithm contains two major techniques: diagonal axes analysis (DAA) and orthogonal checking (OC). Since most of these procedures simply involve additions and subtractions, DAM is more efficient than some other related algorithms. Simulation results confirm this effectiveness
