This paper presents a new distortion measure for multi-band image vector quantization. The distortion measure penalizes the deviation in the ratios of the components. We design a VQ coder for the proposed ratio distortion measure. We then give experimental results that demonstrate that the new VQ coder yields better component ratio preservation than conventional techniques. For sample images, the proposed scheme outperforms SPIHT, JPEG and conventional VQ in color ratio preservation.
