Abstract

In JPEG2000, the Cohen-Daubechies-Feauveau (CDF) 9/7-tap wavelet filter adopted in lossy compression is implemented by the lifting scheme or by the convolution scheme while the LeGall 5/3-tap wavelet filter adopted in lossless compression is implemented just by the lifting scheme. However, these filters are not optimal in terms of Peak Signal-to-Noise Ratio (PSNR) values, and irrational coefficients of wavelet filters are complicated. In this paper, we proposed a method to optimize image quality based on wavelet filter design and on wavelet decomposition. First, we propose a design of wavelet filters by selecting the most appropriate rational coefficients of wavelet filters. These filters are shown to have better performance than previous wavelet ones. Then, we choose the most appropriate wavelet decomposition to get the optimal PSNR values of images.
