Marta Karczewicz, Justin Ridge: Context-based adaptive variable length coding for adaptive block transforms. Nokia Corporation, Ware Fressola Van Der Sluys & Adolphson, September 21, 2004: US06795584 (170 worldwide citation)

A method and system for coding an image using context-based adaptive VLC where transform coefficients are partitioned into blocks having a block dimension of 4nĂ—4m (with n, m being positive integer equal to or greater than 1). Each block is scanned in a zigzag manner to produce an ordered vector of ...
