Paper Abstract

Aiming at the demand of adaptive wavelet transforms via lifting, a three-stage lifting scheme (predict-update-adapt) is proposed according to common two-stage lifting scheme (predict-update) in this paper. The second stage is updating stage. The third is adaptive predicting stage. Our scheme is an update-then-predict scheme that can detect jumps in image from the updated data and it needs not any more additional information. The first stage is the key in our scheme. It is the interim of updating. Its coefficient can be adjusted to adapt to data to achieve a better result. In the adaptive predicting stage, we use symmetric prediction filters in the smooth area of image, while asymmetric prediction filters at the edge of jumps to reduce predicting errors. We design these filters using spatial method directly. The inherent relationships between the coefficients of the first stage and the other stages are found and presented by equations. Thus, the design result is a class of filters with coefficient that are no longer invariant. Simulation result of image coding with our scheme is good.
