Summary: 
A new lossless scalable coding based on a lossless wavelet transform (LWT) and a lossless multi-channel prediction (LMP) is proposed. A rough image can be expanded from a part of the bit stream for the use of progressive transmission. The LMP, a non-separable 2D filter bank, is optimized for an arbitrary input image signal so that remaining correlation of the band signals of the LWT can be utilized. Filter coefficients are optimized for each of input images under the lossless coding gain.
