Keywords : Empirical Mode Decomposition; wavelet transform; Intrinsic Mode Function; discrete cosine transform; Wiener filtering etc.



ABSTRACT: For analyzing non-linear and non-stationary signals Empirical Mode Decomposition (EMD) is introduced as an adaptive method like wavelet packet best basis decomposition. Huang et. al introduced the empirical mode decomposition (EMD) in signal processing in 1998. In this communication we investigated the performance of video denoising using bi-dimensional EMD along with wavelet thresholding. Compressed video quality is obtained with a satisfactory signal to noise (SNR). Indeed, the reconstructed video frames include residual noise and different realizations of frames plus noise that may produce different number of modes.
