The colour volumetric data which is constructed from a set of multi-view images is capable of providing realistic immersive experience. However it is not widely applicable due to its manifold increase in bandwidth. This paper presents a novel framework to achieve scalable volumetric compression. Based on wavelet transformation, data rearrangement algorithm is proposed to compact volumetric data leading to high efficiency of transformation. The colour data is also rearranged by using the characteristics of human eye sensitivity. Moreover, the pre-processing for adaptive resolution is proposed in this paper. The low resolution overcomes the limitation of the data transmission at low bit rate, whilst the fine resolution improves the synthesised images' quality. The results of our proposed schemes show significant improvement of the compression performance over the traditional 3D coding.
