In this paper, a multiple description image coding scheme is proposed to facilitate the transmission of images over media with possible packet loss. The proposed method is based on finding the optimal reconstruction filter coefficients that will be used to reconstruct lost descriptions. For this purpose initially, the original image is downsampled and each subimage is coded using standard JPEG. These decoded images are then mapped to the original image size using the optimal filters. Multiple descriptions consist of coded down-sampled images and the corresponding optimal reconstruction filter coefficients. It is shown that the proposed method provided better results compared to standard interpolation filters (i.e., bicubic and bilinear).
