Analysis of Arithmetic and Huffman Compression Techniques by Using DWT-DCT

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Aug. 2021

In the recent era, digital contents are exchanging over the internet and it has increased exponentially. Sometimes, we need small sizes to share the real world, because of narrow bandwidth. Hence, the data compression concept came in limelight to utilize the storage capacity and available bandwidth efficiently. This paper presents an analysis of Arithmetic and Huffman compression techniques based on a hybrid combination of the DWT-DCT techniques. The input image is decomposed up to the 3rd level by using the DWT and then Arithmetic & Huffman coding is applied separately on quantized sub-bands on 2nd as well as 3rd level coefficients from approximation sub-bands to get a high compression ratio and high peak signal-to-noise ratio values. On the third level approximation sub-band, the DCT method is applied to reduce the blocking effect. Simulation results show that the Arithmetic coding exhibits higher CR than Huffman coding, but smaller PSNR values.

Nowadays, the volume of the data is increasing with time which generates a problem in storage and transfer. To overcome this problem, the data compression is the only solution. Data compression is the science (or an art) of representing information in compact form. This is an active research area. Compression is to save the hardware storage space and transmission bandwidth by reducing the redundant bits. Basically, lossless & lossy are two types of data compression technique. In lossless data compression, original data is similar to decompressed or decoded data, but in lossy technique is not same. In this paper, Study lossless image compression technique. The purpose of image compression is to maximum bandwidth utilization and reduces storage capacity. This technique is beneficial to image storage and transfer. At the present time, Mostly image compression research have focused on the wavelet transform due to better performance over another transform. The performance is evaluated by using MSE & PSNR. DWT, quantization, Arithmetic, Huffman coding and DCT techniques are briefly introduced. After decompression, the quality of image is evaluated using PSNR parameter between original & decoded image. Compression ratio (CR) parameter is calculated to measure how many times image compressed.
