The Wavelet Scalar Quantization (WSQ) class of encoders involves a decomposition of the fingerprint image into a number of subbands, each of which represents information in a particular frequency band. The subband decomposition is achieved by a discrete wavelet transformation (DWT) of the fingerprint image.
Each of the subbands is then quantized using values from a quantization table. No default values for quantization tables are given in this Specification. The quantized coefficients are then passed to a Huffman encoding procedure which compresses the data.
Huffman table specifications must be provided to the encoder. Figure 1 shows the main procedures for WSQ encoding and decoding. The same tables specified for an encoder to use to compress a particular image must be provided to a decoder to reconstruct that image.
