This paper describes a new efficient and simple multiple description image coding system for the reliable communication of images in wireless communication systems. This system uses the inherent redundancy in an image to create several balanced descriptions. Each description is coded using a minimum complexity JPEG image coder and at the decoder, based on the number of received descriptions, an image with different qualities is reconstructed. The simulation results indicate the good performance of this method, particularly for wireless applications.
