In this paper, we propose a new context-based adaptive binary arithmetic coding (CABAC) method for lossless image compression. Since the conventional CABAC in H.264/AVC was originally designed for lossy coding, it does not yield adequate performance during lossless coding. Therefore, we proposed an improved CABAC method for lossless intra coding by considering the statistical characteristics of residual data in lossless intra coding. Experimental results showed that the proposed method reduced the bit rate by 18.2%, compared to the conventional CABAC for lossless intra coding.
