Paper Abstract

In this paper, we illustrate how a recently proposed wavelet-based estimation scheme for 2-D multichannel signals can utilize an overcomplete wavelet expansion or the BayesShrink adaptive wavelet-domain threshold to improve estimation results. The existing technique approximates the optimal estimator using a DFT and an orthonormal 2-D DWT to efficiently decorrelate the signal in both channel and space, and a wavelet-domain threshold to suppress the noise. Although this technique typically yields signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) gains of over 12 dB, results can be improved 1 to 1.5 dB by replacing the critically-sampled wavelet expansion with an overcomplete wavelet expansion. In addition, provided that the detail subbands of the original signal channels each obey a generalized Gaussian distribution, average channel SNR gains can be improved 3 dB or more using the BayesShrink adaptive wavelet-domain threshold.
