The analysis has been carried out in terms of PSNR (peak signal to noise ratio) obtained and time taken for decomposition and reconstruction.In our project we have used different wavelets to perform the transform of a test image and the results have been discussed and analyzed.Data compression which can be lossy or lossless is required to decrease the storage requirement and better data transfer rate. SPIHT (set partitioning in hierarchical trees) and EBCOT(embedded block coding with optimized truncation)use the wavelet transform as basic and common step for their own further technical advantages. The state of the art coding techniques like EZW. 7 .ABSTRACT Abstract: . Wavelet transform uses a large variety of wavelets for decomposition of images. It is comparatively new and has many advantages over others. The wavelet transform results therefore have the importance which is dependent on the type of wavelet used . One of the best image compression techniques is using wavelet transform.

While significant improvements in achievable bandwidth are expected with future wireless access technology. Despite rapid progress in mass-storage density. there is a growing demand for rich Content Cellular Data Communication. JPEG2000 and MPEG . The recent growth of data intensive multimedia-based web applications have not only sustained the need for more efficient ways to encode signals and images but have made compression of such signals central to storage and communication technology. internet access.1 INTRODUCTION Uncompressed multimedia (graphics. and digital communication system performance. mobile commerce. One approach to mitigate this problem is to reduce the volume of multimedia data transmitted over the wireless channel via data compression technique such as JPEG. Home and Medical Monitoring Services and Mobile Conferencing. To enable Modern High Bandwidth required in wireless data services such as mobile multimedia. These approaches concentrate on achieving higher compression ratio without sacrificing the quality of the 9 . email.CHAPTER 1: LITURATURE REVIEW 1. One of the major challenges in enabling mobile multimedia data services will be the need to process and wirelessly transmit very large volume of this rich content data.

Cellular phones would not be able to provide communication with increasing clarity without data compression. In a distributed environment large image files remain a major bottleneck within systems. processor speeds. and digital communication system performance. 1. Since images will constitute a large part of future wireless data. at the Server/Mobile to Mobile/Server. the explosive development in mobile communication and ever increasing importance of video communication. Thus in this paper we have considered all of these parameters like the processing power required in the mobile handset which is limited and also the processing time considerations at the server/mobile ends which will handle all the loads.2 Why Compression is needed? In the last decade. we focus in this paper on developing energy efficient. demand for data storage capacity and data-transmission bandwidth continues to outstrip the capabilities of available technologies. Data compression is art and science of representing information in compact form. However these Multimedia data Compression Technique ignore the energy consumption during the compression and RF transmission. Based on a popular image compression algorithm. Data Compression is one of the technologies for each of the aspect of this multimedia revolution. Here one more factor.Image. which is not considered. we present an Implementation of Advanced Image Compression Algorithm Using Wavelet Transform. Despite rapid progress in mass-storage density. Image Compression is an important component of the solutions available for creating image file sizes of manageable and transmittable 10 . is the processing power requirement at both the ends i. This transformation includes the ever present. namely. wavelet image compression. ever growing internet. there has been a lot of technological transformation in the way we communicate. computing efficient and adaptive image compression and communication techniques.e.

Four Stage model of Data Compression Almost all data compression systems can be viewed as comprising four successive stages of data processing arranged as a processing pipeline (though some stages will often be combined with a neighboring stage. Platform portability and performance are important in the selection of the compression/decompression technique to be employed.

Ideally. An image with a pixel resolution of 640 by 480 pixels and 24-bit colour resolution will take up 640 * 480 * 24/8 = 921. but details become complicated Principle behind Image Compression Images have considerably higher storage requirement than text. An image.5%probable token should be encoded with three bits. The huge amount of storage space is not only the consideration but also the data transmission rates for communication of continuous media are also significantly large. Sometimes clever designers may defer the loss until suggested by statistics detected in (C). an example of this would be modern zero tree image coding. 64 Kbits /s. An image stored in an uncompressed file format. can be huge. throughput in a 12 . • (C) A probability estimate (or its heuristic equivalent) is formed for each token to be encoded.600 bytes in an uncompressed format.Lossy compression often follows the same pattern as lossless. utilizing a high speed.

(D) Finally. each compressed file token is represented as bits in the compressed file. would require 3 MB of storage and 7 minutes for transmission. a 12. for which a simple but good example is JPEG's "Zigzag" ordering. Often the estimation formula will depend on context found by (B) with separate 'bins' of state variables maintained for each conditioned class. For example. Image data compression becomes still more important because of the fact that the transfer of uncompressed graphical data requires far more bandwidth and data transfer rate. such as the popular BMP format. but with one or more quantization steps somewhere in (A). 1024 pixel x 1024 pixel x 24 bit. The purpose of this step is to improve the estimates found by the next step.

a particular piece of information may contain some portion which is not important and can be comfortably removed. 1. the resulting image is said to contain coding redundancy. Let us assume that a random variable r K lying in the 13 . The term data compression refers to the process of reducing the amount of data required to represent a given quantity of information. Image compression research aims at reducing the number of bits needed to represent an image by removing the spatial and spectral redundancies as much as possible. or "bitmap". In general.3 Fundamentals of Image Compression Techniques A digital image. or in near the future with reasonably priced hardware. The foremost task then is to find less correlated representation of the image.PsychovisualRedundancy Coding Redundancy If the gray levels of an image are coded in a way that uses more code symbols than absolutely necessary to represent each gray level. consists of a grid of dots. A common characteristic of most images is that the neighboring pixels are correlated and therefore contain redundant information. It is almost always present when an image‟s gray levels are represented with a straight or natural binary code. with each pixel defined by a numeric value that gives its colour. All such data is referred as Redundant Data. This kind of data transfer rate is not realizable with today‟s technology. which must be transferred between systems. Data redundancy is a central issue in digital image compression. Inter Pixel Redundancy 3. Now. Coding Redundancy 2. or "pixels".multimedia system can be as high as 140 Mbits/s. three types of redundancy can be identified: 1.

of times that gray appears in that image N = Total no. Pr (r K) = N k / n where k = 0.interval [0. In order to reduce the inter pixel redundancies in an image. of bits required to code an M×N image is M×N× L avg. These types of transformations are referred as mappings. of pixels in the image If no. The information carried by an individual pixel is relatively small. of gray levels. 2… L-1 L = No. For example. 1. the differences between adjacent pixels can be used to represent an image. Thus the total no. 1] represents the gray levels of an image and that each r K occurs with probability Pr (r K). the 2-D pixel array normally used for viewing and interpretation must be transformed into a more efficient but usually „non visual‟ format. of bits required to represent each pixel is L avg = l (r K) Pr (r K) That is average length of code words assigned to the various gray levels is found by summing the product of the no. the average no. They are called reversible if the original image elements can be reconstructed from the transformed data set. of bits used to represent each gray level and the probability that the gray level occurs. of bits used to represent each value of r K is l (r K). 14 . Inter Pixel Redundancy The Information of any given pixel can be reasonably predicted from the value of its neighbouring pixel. N k =No.

visual information is lost. an observer searches for distinguishing features such as edges or textual regions and mentally combines them in recognizable groupings. The brain then correlates these groupings with prior knowledge in order to complete the image interpretation process. In general. An image reconstructed following Lossy compression contains degradation relative to the original.e. This information is said to be Psycho visually redundant. The elimination of psycho visually redundant data results in loss of quantitative information. it can be eliminated without significantly impairing the quality of image perception. thus it results in Lossy Data Compression. As this is an irreversible process i. 15 . it is commonly referred as quantization. Often this is because the compression scheme completely discards redundant information.Psycho visual Redundancy Certain information simply has less relative importance than other information in normal visual processing.

Lossless compression algorithms can be used to squeeze down images and then restore them again for viewing completely unchanged.Image Compression Model As figure shows a compression system consists of two distinct structural blocks: an encoder and a decoder. However Lossless Compression can achieve a modest amount of Compression. Medical Imaging. Lossy Coding Techniques Lossless Coding Techniques: In Lossless Compression schemes. Lossless Coding Techniques are as follows: Source Encoder Input Image F(x. but unaltered archiving is a legal requirement. Image Compression Techniques There are basically two methods of Image Compression: 1. Lossless coding guaranties that the decompressed image is absolutely identical to the image before compression. Lossless techniques can also be used for the compression of other data types where loss of information is not acceptable. the reconstructed image. e. This is an important requirement for some application domains. Entropy Encoding 4. after compression. Huffman Encoding 3. is numerically identical to the original image. which creates a set of symbols from the input data.g.g. y) is fed into the encoder. text documents and program executables. e. Area Encoding 16 . where not only high quality is in the demand. Lossless Coding Techniques 2. An input image f(x. y) 1. Run Length Encoding 2.

Encoding is usually error free. 2. high correlation. For example. An image reconstructed following Lossy compression contains degradation relative to the original. one might examine a representative sample of the originals and determine the level of detail 17 . Measurement of Image Quality The design of an imaging system should begin with an analysis of the physical characteristics of the originals and the means through which the images may be generated. 3.Lossy Coding Techniques: Lossy techniques cause image quality degradation in each Compression / De-compression step. Image Modeling: It is aimed at the exploitation of statistical characteristics of the image (i. Encoding: Here a code is generated by associating appropriate code words to the raw produced by the Quantizer. Often this is because the compression schemes are capable of achieving much higher compression. Under normal viewing conditions.e. Lossy Image Coding Techniques normally have three Components: 1. though this depends on the selected compression ratio. Parameter Quantization: The aim of Quantization is to reduce the amount of data used to represent the information within the new domain. Careful consideration of the Human Visual perception ensures that the degradation is often unrecognizable. It defines such things as the transformation to be applied to the Image. It optimizes the representation of the information and may introduce some error detection codes. no visible loss is perceived (visually Lossless). redundancy).

that must be preserved. in drawings or paintings it may be important to preserve stippling or other techniques characteristic 18 . perhaps with a magnifier or microscope. A detailed examination of some of the originals. whether they can tolerate exposure to high light intensity. may be necessary to determine the level of detail within the original that might be meaningful for a researcher or scholar. the depth of field that must be captured. For example. whether they can be placed on a glass platen or require a custom book-edge scanner. and whether specular reflections must be captured or minimized.

where the properties of the transform are exploited to represent a discrete signal in a more redundant form. The DCT is similar to the discrete Fourier transform: it transforms a signal or image from the spatial domain to the frequency domain. DCT (Discrete Cosine Transform) 3. often as a preconditioning for data compression. The discrete wavelet transform has a huge number of applications in Science. The transform is based on a wavelet matrix. Mathematics and Computer Science. A transform which localizes a function both in space and scaling and has some desirable properties compared to the Fourier transform.3 Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT): The discrete wavelet transform (DWT) refers to wavelet transforms for which the wavelets are discretely sampled.2.2. the discrete wavelet transform is used for signal coding. Most notably.2. 2. Engineering.2 The Discrete Cosine Transform (DCT): The discrete cosine transform (DCT) helps separate the image into parts (or spectral sub-bands) of differing importance (with respect to the image's visual quality). 22 .

or highfrequency components in two-dimensional images.: there is no compression yet since it is only a transform). the wavelet compression methods are better at representing transients. The goal is to store image data in as little space as possible in a file. such as the more widespread discrete cosine transform. Examples for Wavelet Compressions: · JPEG 2000 · Ogg · Tarkin · SPIHT · MrSID 23 . This means that the transient elements of a data. These coefficients can then be compressed more easily because the information is statistically concentrated in just a few coefficients. the coefficients are quantized and the quantized values are entropy encoded and/or run length encoded. First a wavelet transform is applied. had been used. for example an image of stars on a night sky. A certain loss of quality is accepted (lossy compression). After that. This principle is called transform coding. Using a wavelet transform. This produces as many coefficients as there are pixels in the image (i. signal can be represented by a smaller amount of information than would be the case if some other transform. such as percussion sounds in audio.e.Wavelet compression is a form of data compression well suited for image compression (sometimes also video compression and audio compression).

the stream becomes more compressible.3 Quantization: Quantization involved in image processing. 24 . This is the main lossy operation in the whole process.3 Entropy Encoding An entropy encoding is a coding scheme that assigns codes to symbols so as to match code lengths with the probabilities of the symbols. entropy encoders are used to compress data by replacing symbols represented by equal-length codes with symbols represented by codes proportional to the negative logarithm of the probability.2. and many of the rest become small positive or negative numbers. This is done by simply dividing each component in the frequency domain by a constant for that component. Typically. Quantization in image compression The human eye is fairly good at seeing small differences in brightness over a relatively large area. Quantization techniques generally compress by compressing a range of values to a single quantum value. and then rounding to the nearest integer. For example seeking to reduce the number of colors required to represent an image. it is typically the case that many of the higher frequency components are rounded to zero. This fact allows one to get away with greatly reducing the amount of information in the high frequency components. As a result of this. Therefore. but not so good at distinguishing the exact strength of a high frequency brightness variation. By reducing the number of discrete symbols in a given stream. the most common symbols use the shortest codes. 2. Another widely used example — DCT data quantization in JPEG and DWT data quantization in JPEG 2000.

Golomb coding. or Rice coding may be useful.a relatively new variable length coding scheme that can combine the best features of Huffman and runlength coding. a simpler static code such as unary coding.very useful for binary data containing long runs of ones of zeros. the optimal code length for a symbol is −logbP. • Arithmetic Coding . using −415 (the DC coefficient) and rounding to the nearest integer 25 . This is an example DCT coefficient matrix: A common quantization matrix is: Using this quantization matrix with the DCT coefficient matrix from above results in: For example. where b is the number of symbols used to make output codes and P is the probability of the input symbol. First we consider the change in compression performance if simple Huffman Coding is used to code the subimages of the 4-level Haar transform. There are three main techniques for achieving entropy coding: • Huffman Coding .

so to speak. these functions are non-local (and stretch out to infinity). This makes wavelets interesting and useful. Wavelet algorithms process data at different scales or resolutions." we would notice gross features. If we look at a signal with a large "window. The result in wavelet analysis is to see both the forest and the trees. But with wavelet analysis. if we look at a signal with a small "window. in wavelet analysis. Wavelets are well-suited for approximating data with sharp discontinuities.1 OVERVIEW The fundamental idea behind wavelets is to analyze according to scale. This idea is not new. By their definition. However. The wavelet analysis procedure is to adopt a wavelet prototype function." we would notice small features. by using wavelets. Similarly.CHAPTER 3: NUMERICAL MODELING 3. to approximate choppy signals . For many decades. Temporal analysis is performed with a contracted. Approximation using superposition of functions has existed since the early 1800's. called an analyzing wavelet or mother wavelet. we can use approximating functions that are contained neatly in finite domains. Wavelets are functions that satisfy certain mathematical requirements and are used in representing data or other functions. some researchers in the wavelet field feel that. scientists have wanted more appropriate functions than the sines and cosines which comprise the bases of Fourier analysis. the scale that we use to look at data plays a special role. one is adopting a whole new mindset or perspective in processing data. high-frequency version of the 28 . when Joseph Fourier discovered that he could superpose sines and cosines to represent other functions. They therefore do a very poor job in approximating sharp spikes. Indeed.

Notice that x multiplied by (1. signal and image processing. nuclear engineering. speech discrimination.0) and (0. earthquake-prediction. or orthogonal to each other. We can construct A by adding sines and cosines 29 . music. The sum is (x. And if you further choose the best wavelets adapted to your data. For the basis (1.0) and (0. radar. human vision. data operations can be performed using just the corresponding wavelet coefficients.y). 3. low-frequency version of the same wavelet. and see how to relate these concepts to basis functions.2 What are Basis Functions? It is simpler to explain a basis function if we move out of the realm of analog (functions) and into the realm of digital (vectors) (*). Every two-dimensional vector (x. The best basis vectors have the valuable extra property that the vectors are perpendicular. turbulence. Now let's go back to the analog world. this criteria is satisfied.0) is the vector (x. and y multiplied by (0.1). we have a function f(x). fractals. while frequency analysis is performed with a dilated. Other applied fields that are making use of wavelets include astronomy. sub-band coding.y). neurophysiology. magnetic resonance imaging. acoustics. or truncate the coefficients below a threshold. optics.1).y). Imagine that f(x) is a musical tone.0). and pure mathematics applications such as solving partial differential equations. Because the original signal or function can be represented in terms of a wavelet expansion (using coefficients in a linear combination of the wavelet functions).y).1) is the vector (0. This sparse coding makes wavelets an excellent tool in the field of data compression. say the note A in a particular octave. Instead of the vector (x.

The particular set of functions that are orthogonal and that construct f(x) are our orthogonal basis functions for this problem. 1/2 to 3/4.using combinations of amplitudes and frequencies. we can set the additional requirement that they be orthogonal. Then we can divide the original signal again using four step functions from 0 to 1/4. Each set of representations code the original signal with a particular resolution or scale. and 3/4 to 1. and the elements of Fourier synthesis. For the sines and cosines chosen. imagine we have a signal over the domain from 0 to 1. And so on. For example. The sines and cosines are the basis functions in this example. 30 . 1/4 to 1/2. We can divide the signal with two step functions that range from 0 to 1/2 and 1/2 to 1. How? By choosing the appropriate combination of sine and cosine function terms whose inner product add up to zero. What are Scale-Varying Basis Functions? A basis function varies in scale by chopping up the same function or data space using different scale sizes.

You could artificially extend the signal to make it periodic but it would require additional continuity at the endpoints. WINDOWED FOURIER TRANSFORM If f(t) is a nonperiodic signal. An inverse Fourier transform does just what you'd expect. The DFT has symmetry properties almost exactly the same as the continuous Fourier transform. If the 31 .3 Fourier analysis FOURIER TRANSFORM The Fourier transform's utility lies in its ability to analyze a signal in the time domain for its frequency content. The windowed Fourier transform (WFT) is one solution to the problem of better representing the non periodic signal. The WFT can be used to give information about signals simultaneously in the time domain and in the frequency domain. DISCRETE FOURIER TRANSFORM The discrete Fourier transform (DFT) estimates the Fourier transform of a function from a finite number of its sampled points.3. With the WFT. The signal can then be analyzed for its frequency content because the Fourier coefficients of the transformed function represent the contribution of each sine and cosine function at each frequency. sine and cosine. and each section is analyzed for its frequency content separately. the input signal f(t) is chopped up into sections. The sampled points are supposed to be typical of what the signal looks like at all other times. transform data from the frequency domain into the time domain. does not accurately represent the signal. In addition. the formula for the inverse discrete Fourier transform is easily calculated using the one for the discrete Fourier transform because the two formulas are almost identical. the summation of the periodic functions. The transform works by first translating a function in the time domain into a function in the frequency domain.

32 . For the FFT.4 SIMILARITIES BETWEEN FOURIER AND WAVELET TRANSFORM The fast Fourier transform (FFT) and the discrete wavelet transform (DWT) are both linear operations that generate a data structure that contains segments of various lengths. 3. this new domain contains basis functions that are sines and cosines. then the Fourier matrix can be factored into a product of just a few sparse matrices. both transforms can be viewed as a rotation in function space to a different domain. usually filling and transforming it into a different data vector of length . As a result. FAST FOURIER TRANSFORM To approximate a function by samples. or analyzing wavelets. and to approximate the Fourier integral by the discrete Fourier transform. The mathematical properties of the matrices involved in the transforms are similar as well. mother wavelets. if the samples are uniformly spaced. and the resulting factors can be applied to a vector in a total of order arithmetic operations. This is the so-called fast Fourier transform or FFT. The inverse transform matrix for both the FFT and the DWT is the transpose of the original. For the wavelet transform. the problem gets quickly worse as the number of sample points increases. we window the input data so that the sections converge to zero at the endpoint.signal has sharp transitions. this new domain contains more complicated basis functions called wavelets. The effect of the window is to localize the signal in time. This windowing is accomplished via a weight function that places less emphasis near the interval's endpoints than in the middle. Since multiplying an matrix by a vector costs on the order of arithmetic operations. requires applying a matrix whose order is the number sample points n. However.

making mathematical tools such as power spectra (how much power is contained in a frequency interval) and scale grams (to be defined later) useful at picking out frequencies and calculating power distributions. This sparseness.5 DISSIMILARITIES BETWEEN FOURIER AND WAVELET TRANSFORM The most interesting dissimilarity between these two kinds of transforms is that individual wavelet functions are localized in space. and removing noise from time series.Both transforms have another similarity. The basis functions are localized in frequency. along with wavelets' localization of frequency. 3. in turn. results in a number of useful applications such as data compression. This localization feature. 33 . detecting features in images. Fourier sine and cosine functions are not. makes many functions and operators using wavelets "sparse" when transformed into the wavelet domain.

where the time domain is replaced with the space domain 34 . Fast wavelet transform The Fast Wavelet Transform is a mathematical algorithm designed to turn a waveform or signal in the time domain into a sequence of coefficients based on an orthogonal basis of small finite waves. The transform can be easily extended to multidimensional signals. a key advantage it has over Fourier transforms is temporal resolution: it captures both frequency and location information. Discrete wavelet transform In numerical analysis and functional analysis. the continuous wavelet transform possesses the ability to construct a time frequency represented of a signal that offers very good time and frequency localization. a discrete wavelet transform (DWT) is any wavelet transform for which the wavelets are discretely sampled. or wavelets.3. As with other wavelet transforms.6 LIST OF WAVELET RELATED TRANSFORM 1.Multiresolution analysis A multiresolution analysis (MRA) or multiscale approximation (MSA) is the design methods of most of the practically relevant discrete wavelet transform (DWT) and the justification for the algorithm of the fast Fourier wavelet transform (FWT) 3. 2 . such as images. Unlike Fourier transform. 4. Continuous wavelet transform A continuous wavelet transform is used to divide a continuous-time function into wavelets.

3. The Haar wavelet's mother wavelet function ψ(t) can be described as and its scaling function φ(t) can be described as 37 . The study of wavelets. It is now recognised as the first known wavelet. The Haar wavelet is also the simplest possible wavelet. and therefore not differentiable. the Haar wavelet is a certain sequence of functions. and even the term "wavelet". The technical disadvantage of the Haar wavelet is that it is not continous . did not come until much later. This sequence was proposed in 1909 by Alfred Haar. Haar used these functions to give an example of a countable orthonormal system for the space of square integrable functions on the real line.2 HAAR WAVELET In mathematics.

The Haar transform is computed using: 38 .Wavelets are mathematical functions that were developed by scientists working in several different fields for the purpose of sorting data by frequency. Translated data can then be sorted at a resolution which matches its scale. the wavelet transform is not Fourier-based and therefore wavelets do a better job of handling discontinuities in data. Both small features and large features are discernable because they are studied separately. Studying data at different levels allows for the development of a more complete picture. Unlike the discrete cosine transform. The Haar wavelet operates on data by calculating the sums and differences of adjacent elements. The Haar wavelet operates first on adjacent horizontal elements and then on adjacent vertical elements.
