We have developed and tested alternative transforms which create different zerotree structures. These new transforms can significantly improve the performance of image compression algorithms that use zerotrees without a significant modification of the latter. A new wavelet pyramid that results in an effective non-integer up- and down-sampling of the high-frequency sub-bands is presented in this paper. Non-integer sub-sampled pyramids can also be used to reduce the data dependency in the compression algorithm, and therefore reduce the execution time in a processor with multiple parallel processing units
