Paper Abstract

Discrete wavelet transform is an effective tool to generate scalable stream, but it cannot efficiently represent edges which are not aligned in horizontal or vertical directions, while natural images often contain rich edges and textures of this kind. Hence, recently, intensive research has been focused particularly on the directional wavelets which can effectively represent directional attributes of images. Specifically, there are two categories of directional wavelets: redundant wavelets (RW) and adaptive directional wavelets (ADW). One representative redundant wavelet is the dual-tree discrete wavelet transform (DDWT), while adaptive directional wavelets can be further categorized into two types: with or without side information. In this paper, we briefly introduce directional wavelets and compare their directional bases and image compression performances.
