Summary: 
Lossless video coding is required in the fields of archiving and editing digital cinema or digital broadcasting contents. This paper proposes multiresolution lossless video coding using a discrete wavelet transform and adaptive inter/intra-frame prediction in the wavelet domain. The multiresolution structure based on the wavelet transform facilitates interchange among several video source formats such as Super High Definition (SHD) images, HDTV, SDTV, and mobile applications. In order to increase the compression ratio, and to keep the computational cost low, the adaptive inter/intra-frame prediction is performed in the lowest wavelet transform domain. The adaptive inter/intra-frame prediction can adapt to changes in the local inter/intra-frame statistics. Experiments on digital cinema test sequences confirm effectiveness of the proposed algorithm.
