In this paper, we propose a function that provides scalability of image quality on the basis of regions of interest for JPEG2000 coding. Functions of this type are useful in the progressive transmission of images, where the aim is to more quickly decode regions of interest than backgrounds. The conventional methods of progressive transmission have mainly been based on SNR scalability or on resolution scalability. With these conventional functions, it is impossible to achieve region-based scalability in the progressive transmission of images. The proposed methods use the ROI and SNR layer structures of JPEG2000, so the methods are suitable for the region-progressive transmission of JPEG2000 images.
