An adaptive discrete cosine transform (DCT) algorithm was presented by Hontsch et. al. under the perceptual metric which provided good bit rate. However, this method requires carefully calibrated viewing conditions. In this paper, we present a new adaptive discrete cosine transform where the quantization steps are adapted for each DCT coefficient using the new universal quality index. This new quality index does not require carefully calibrated viewing conditions and it is based on a combination of luminance and contrast distortions, and loss of correlation. Results obtained show that the procedure converges and provides a good bit rate.
