Quantization is an essential step which leads to compression in discrete cosine transform (DCT) domain. In this paper, we show how a statistically non-optimal uniform quantizer can be improved by employing an efficient reconstruction method. For this purpose, we estimate the probability distribution function (PDF) of original DCT coefficients in a decoder. By applying the estimated PDF into the reconstruction process, the dequantization distortion can be reduced. The proposed method can be used practically in any applications where uniform quantizers are used. In particular, it can be used for the quantization scheme of the JPEG and MPEG coding standards.
