JPEG2000 has become one of the most rewarding image coding standards. It provides a practical set of features which weren’t necessarily available in the previous standards. The features were realized as a result of two new techniques, namely the Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT), and Embedded Block Coding with Optimized Truncation (EBCOT). The complexity of EBCOT Tier-1 makes its implementations very difficult and time consuming. In this paper, we focus on accelerating JPEG2000 encoder by using general-purpose processing on Graphical Processing Unit (GPU). We use CUDA platform to implement DWT and EBCOT Tier-1 as the most important sections of JPEG2000. Resulting implementation of proposed architecture performs very well compared to other available implementations.
