Ridgelet transform applied to motion compensated images
Wavelet transform is a powerful instrument in catching zero-dimensional singularities. Ridgelets are a powerful instrument in catching and representing mono-dimensional singularities in bidimensional space. In this paper we propose a hybrid video coder scheme using ridgelet transform for the first approximation of line-edge singularities in displaced frame difference images. We demonstrate the potential of ridgelets and results show substantial improvements when compared to wavelet only based coder.
