Image Compression Techniques by using Wavelet Transform

V. V. Sunil Kumar, M. Indra Sena Reddy


This paper is concerned with a certain type of compression techniques by using wavelet transforms. Wavelets are used to characterize a complex pattern as a series of simple patterns and coefficients that, when multiplied and summed, reproduce the original pattern.  The data compression schemes can be divided into lossless and lossy compression. Lossy compression generally provides much higher compression than lossless compression. Wavelets are a class of functions used to localize a given signal in both space and scaling domains. A MinImage was originally created to test one type of wavelet and the additional functionality was added to Image to support other wavelet types, and the EZW coding algorithm was implemented to achieve better compression.

Keywords: Wavelet Transforms, Image Compression, Lossless Compression, Lossy Compression
