Paper Abstract

The transmission of real-time images and video over wireless communication channels is still a challenge problem. Digital compressed images are sensitive to bit errors which are typical in wireless communications. Moreover, the bandwidth at the air interface is currently a limiting factor because the first and second generation of mobile phone standards mainly support voice communications. In this paper, we present our study of real-time image traffic over a radio link -- the aim of this research is for videophone applications. In this study, we use the Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) to compress images and a Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) link to transfer images over wireless communication channels. The results of the experiment show that it is possible to transfer 4 QCIF images per second over a CD MA link with minor degradation in image quality. This study was investigated by the VLSI Signal, Image and Video Processing Research Laboratory at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD).
