Paper Abstract

This paper presents a real-time multi-directional 2D fast wavelet transform. As a real-time implementation of wavelet, small pixel windows in raster scan order are sequentially used as inputs to the transform instead of full image frame. This approach is corresponding to a recent image sensor releasing image pixels in line-by-line scanning order. The proposed method has high locality property so as to achieve low-latency real-time implementation adequate for recent mobile highly cost-effective application and it uses multi-directional decomposition which enables the transform to reduce the directional artifacts often occurring in conventional two-directional separable decomposition wavelet. As a possible application of the proposed wavelet, denoised sharpening algorithm was devised and the result is presented, representing the enhancement of directional and blocking artifacts problem.
