The implementation of wavelets in differing areas of signal processing has been a popular research area over the last decade. However, utilising this technology in compressing two dimensional signals, such as digital images is relatively new. Wavelet compression has many distinct advantages over earlier compression methods, the most important of which is suitability to error protection as well as the ability to precisely truncate the compressed bitstream to achieve a desired bit rate for transmission. In this paper some of the recently emerging technologies pertaining to wavelet coding of images will be reviewed, particularly with the use of wireless channels. These developments include techniques to filter images that have been degraded through the addition of noise as well as reconstructing parts of images that have been lost as a result of the fading that characterises wireless mobile environments.
