Discrete time wavelet transforms (DWT), which produces
multiscale image decomposition. By employing filtering and subsampling, a
result in the form of the decomposition image (for classical dyadic approach)
is produced, very effectively revealing data redundancy in several scales. A
coding principle is then applied in order to compress the data. It superior to
Fourier and DCT. It has Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) provides a multi
resolution image representation and has become one of the most important tools
in image analysis and coding over the last two decades.
Image compression algorithms based on DWT provide high coding efficiency for natural (smooth) images. As dyadic DWT does not adapt to the various spacefrequency properties of images, the energy compaction it achieves is generally not optimal. It has been widely applied and developed in image processing and compression.

There exist two ways how to implement the computation of the
discretetime wavelet transform. The first approach uses convolution
(filtering) with appropriate boundary handling, the second is a fast lifting approach, a refined system
of very short
filters which are
applied in a way that produces the
same result as the first approach, introducing significant computational and
memory savings .Lifting scheme is
derived from a polyphase matrix
representation of the
wavelet filters, a representation that
is distinguishing between
even and odd
samples. Using the
algorithm of filter factoring, we
split the original
filter into a
series of shorter
filters (typically Laurent
polynomials of first degree).
Those filters are designed as lifting steps; each step one group of
coefficients are lifted(altered) with the help of the other one (classical dyadic transform always leads to
two groups of coefficients, lowpass and highpass).
Since
images are twodimensional signals, we have to extend the scheme to 2D space by
applying the transform row and columnwise,respectively(taking separability of
the transform into account).

level image decomposition
As a
consequence four subbands arise from one level of the transform – one
lowpass subband containing the coarse approximation of the source image called
LL subband, and three highpass subbands
that exploit image details across different directions – HL for horizontally
for vertical and HH for diagonal details. IN the next level of the transform,
we use the LL band for further decomposition and replace it with respective
four subbands. This forms the decomposition image.
Advantages:
1. DWT has excellent energy compaction capabilities and hence
the coding technique must be welldesigned to achieve significant image
compression.
2. At low bit rate, DWT avoid the blocking artifacts of DCT.
3. It presents better coding performance.

Syntax:
[cA,cH,cV,cD] =
dwt2(X,'wname')

[cA,cH,cV,cD] = dwt2(X,Lo_D,Hi_D)

computes
the twodimensional wavelet decomposition as above, based on wavelet
decomposition filters that you specify.
Lo_D is
the decomposition lowpass filter.
Hi_D is
the decomposition highpass filter.
Lo_D
and Hi_D must be the same length.
