Author Affiliations +
At low bit rates, the linear subband coders are susceptible to the ringing effect, which causes rippling and blurring around the edges in the images. On the other hand, the nonlinear coders are affected by the smearing effect wherein the detail regions are removed. In this paper, we introduce fuzzy subband coding system. This system uses fuzzy median filters in the analysis and synthesis stage of the coder. The motivation for this study is to determine if this novel system can reduce both ringing and smearing effect. Experimental results show that this new subband coder does out-perform linear and median filter subband coders, both in PSNR and visually.
