ACM Ref: ComputingMethodologies_IMAGEPROCESSINGANDCOMPUTERVISION
This thesis is concerned with the methods used to reduce the data volume required to represent\ud still images and video sequences. The number of disparate still image and video\ud coding methods increases almost daily. Recently, two new strategies have emerged and\ud have stimulated widespread research. These are the fractal method and the wavelet transform.\ud In this thesis, it will be argued that the two methods share a common principle: that\ud of self-similarity. The two will be related concretely via an image coding algorithm which\ud combines the two, normally disparate, strategies.\ud The wavelet transform is an orientation selective transform. It will be shown that the\ud selectivity of the conventional transform is not sufficient to allow exploitation of self-similarity\ud while keeping computational cost low. To address this, a new wavelet transform\ud is presented which allows for greater orientation selectivity, while maintaining the\ud orthogonality and data volume of the conventional wavelet transform. Many designs for\ud vector quantizers have been published recently and another is added to the gamut by this\ud work. The tree structured vector quantizer presented here is on-line and self structuring,\ud requiring no distinct training phase. Combining these into a still image data compression\ud system produces results which are among the best that have been published to date.\ud An extension of the two dimensional wavelet transform to encompass the time dimension\ud is straightforward and this work attempts to extrapolate some of its properties into three\ud dimensions. The vector quantizer is then applied to three dimensional image data to\ud produce a video coding system which, while not optimal, produces very encouraging\ud results.
