Well-known block transforms and perfect reconstruction orthonormal filter banks are evaluated based on their frequency behavior and energy compaction. The filter banks outperform the block transforms for the signal sources considered. Although the latter are simpler to implement and already the choice of the existing video coding standards, filter banks with simple algorithms may well become the signal decomposition technique for the next generation video codecs, which require a multiresolution signal representation.
