The one-dimensional (1-D) general signal is regarded as the quantized object in the above-mentioned methods, and but they cannot present the better performance when the quantized object is replaced with the more special 2-D image, which is because the intrinsic spatial correlation existing in natural images is neglected in their quantization process.
