Image Compression Using Contourlet Wavelet Transform (CWT)

Authors(2) :-Mule Abhi Roop, Dr. I. Kullayamma

Singular Value Decomposition (SVD) deals withthe decomposition of general matrices which has proven to beuseful for numerous applications in science and engineeringdisciplines recently different techniques are used for compressing the images. Singular value decomposition is also recently used technique. In this paper we propose a method based on contourlet wavelet transform (CWT) and also the compression ratio also evaluated. Compared to SVD, H264, the contourlettransform provides accurate and effective results .The experimental results gives better performance and the method gives valid and accurate results .The implementation tool for the tests andexperiments is MATLAB.
