The weighted universal transform code (WUTC) is a two-stage transform code that replaces JPEG's single, non-optimal transform code with a jointly designed collection of transform codes to achieve good performance across a broader class of possible sources. Unfortunately, the performance gains of WUTC are achieved at the expense of significant increases in computational complexity and larger codes. We here present a faster, more space-efficient WUTC algorithm. The new algorithm uses separable coding instead of direct KLT. While separable coding gives performance comparable to that of WUTC, it uses only 1/8 of the floating-point multiplications and 1/32 of storage of direct KLT. Experimental results included in this work compare the performance of new separable WUTC with both the WUTC and other fast variations of that algorithm.
