Paper Abstract

This paper presents a wavelet based image coding method achieving high levels of compression. A multi-resolution subband decomposition system is constructed using Quadrature Mirror Filters. Symmetric extension and windowing of the multi-scaled subbands are incorporated to minimize the boundary effects. Next, the Embedded Zerotree Wavelet coding algorithm is used for data compression method. Elimination of the isolated zero symbol, for certain subbands, leads to an improved EZW algorithm. Further compression is obtained with an adaptive arithmetic coder. We achieve a PSNR of 26.91 dB at a bit rate of 0.018, 35.59 dB at a bit rate of 0.149, and 43.05 dB at 0.892 bits/pixel for the aerospace image, Refuel.
