1 Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) - Basis for JPEG2000 - Involves repeated decompositions of an image into successively smaller subbands. - The DWT itself is lossless (if finite precision loss disregarded); the lossy compression occurs when the wavelet transform data is quantized and then further compressed. - When used in video compression algorithms, the DWT is almost always used in an intra-frame manner (one image at a time), in contrast to block-based inter-frame MPEG style algorithms.

2 Multilevel Wavelet Filtering Wavelets are often applied in a tree structure, where the low pass output signal is filtered and downsampled in a repeated manner. This filtering tree is often called the ‘dyadic’ decomposition. H 1 (z) 2 H 0 (z) 2 H 1 (z) 2 H 0 (z) 2 H 1 (z) 2 H 0 (z) 2 H1 H2 H3 L3 highpass highpass highpass lowpass lowpass lowpass
