Paper Abstract

Video communication aiming at public switched telephone network (PSTN) applied with voice-band modem is attractive because of its low-cost facilities and the wide coverage of PSTN around the world, The key technique of video transmission over PSTN with voice-band modem is very low bit-rate video coding. Video coding based on discrete wavelet transform has become a hot research topic. But while in very low bit-rate video coding applications, the peak signal to noise ratio (PSNR) and the visual quality of image reconstructions are not very satisfactory by using the general orthogonal or biorthogonal wavelet which does not match well with human visual system characteristics. In this paper, a new kind of compact biorthogonal wavelet based on the modulation transfer function for human visual system model is used in very low bit-rate video coding scheme, in which a new improved Goh's 3D wavelet transform and motion compression technique are applied. The experimental results indicate that the new coding scheme using the constructed compact biorthogonal wavelet has a good performance in average PSNR, compression ratios and visual quality of image reconstruction when compared to the other motion-compensated 2D and 3D coding schemes based on the general biorthogonal wavelet transform.
