This paper proposes an interband version of CALIC (context-based, adaptive, lossless image codec) which represents one of the best performing, practical and general purpose lossless image coding techniques known today. Interband coding techniques are needed for effective compression of multispectral images like color images and remotely sensed images. It is demonstrated that CALIC's techniques of context modeling of DPCM errors lend themselves easily to modeling of higher-order interband correlations that cannot be exploited by simple interband linear predictors alone. The proposed interband CALIC exploits both interband and intraband statistical redundancies, and obtains significant compression gains over its intrahand counterpart. On some types of multispectral images, interband CALIC can lead to a reduction in bit rate of more than 20% as compared to intraband CALIC. Interband CALIC only incurs a modest increase in computational cost as compared to intraband CALIC
