The lifting scheme is an efficient and flexible method for the construction of linear and nonlinear wavelet transforms. In this paper, a novel lossless image coding technique based on the lifting scheme using discrete-time cellular neural networks (DT-CNNs) is proposed. In our proposed method, the image is interpolated by using the nonlinear interpolative dynamics of DT-CNN, and since the output function of DT-CNN works as a multi-level quantization function, our method composes the integer lifting scheme for lossless image coding. Moreover, the nonlinear interpolative dynamics by A-template is used effectively compared with conventional CNN image coding methods using only B-template. The experimental results show a better coding performance compared with the conventional lifting methods using linear filters.
