Summary:
In this thesis we applied wavelet transforms to image and video coding. First, a survey of various wavelets and their features is presented, including continuous, discrete, and orthogonal wavelets. Theories and concepts underlying one and two-dimensional wavelet transforms are introduced and compared to Fourier transform and sub-band coding. The core of the thesis is the implementation of two-dimensional and three-dimensional codec architectures and their application to coding images and videos, respectively. We studied performance of the wavelet codec by comparing it to DCT and JPEG coding techniques. We applied these techniques for compression of a variety of test images and videos. We also analyzed the adaptability and scalability of 2D and 3D codec. Experimental results, presented in the thesis, illustrate the superior performance of wavelets compared to other coding techniques.
