Abstract

A new wavelet based video codec that uses human visual system coefficients is presented. In INTRA mode of operation, wavelet transform is used to split the input frame into a number of subbands. Human Visual system coefficients are designed for handheld videophone devices and used to regulate the quantization stepsize in the pixel quantization of the high frequency subbands’ coefficients. The quantized coefficients are coded using quadtreecoding scheme. In the INTER mode of operation, the displaced frame difference is generated and a wavelet transform decorrelates it into a number of subbands. These subbands are coded using adaptive vector quantization scheme. Results indicate a significant improvement in frame quality compared to motion JPEG2000
