This brief presents a novel algorithm for speeding up the codebook design in image vector quantization that exploits the correlation among the pixels in an image block to compress the computational complexity of calculating the squared Euclidean distortion measures, and uses the similarity between the codevectors in the consecutive codebooks during the iterative clustering process to reduce the number of codevectors necessary to be checked for one codebook search. Verified test results have shown that the proposed algorithm can provide almost 98% reduction of the execution time when compared to the conventional Linde-Buzo-Gray (LBG) algorithm.
