In this letter, we propose a new error protection technique for JPEG2000-coded images and also present its evaluation over an OFDM channel. The method exploits the layer structure of the JPEG2000 codestream, a data embedding technique and a forward error correcting code. The main header and data in the top layer are duplicated and protected by the error correcting code. These data are then embedded into the bottom layer for error recovery purposes. Our method offers several features: preserves the same codestream structure as the one in the JPEG2000 part 1 standard, provides multilevel error protection, and can be combined with the existing error resilience technique. Hence, the method accommodates the new requirements for wireless JPEG2000 (JPWL/JPEG2000 part 11).
