The two-dimensional discrete wavelet transform (2D DWT) is becoming one of the standard tools for image and video compression systems. Various input-traversal schedules have been proposed for its computation. Here, major schedules for 2D DWT computation are compared with respect to their performance on a very long instruction-word (VLIW) digital signal processor (DSP). In particular, three popular transform-production schedules are considered: the row-column, the line based and the block based. Realisations of the wavelet transform according to the considered schedules have been developed. They are parameterised with respect to filter pair, image size and number of decomposition levels. All realisations have been mapped on a VLIW DSP, as these processors currently form an attractive alternative for the realisation of signal, image and video processing systems. Performance metrics for the realisations for a complete set of parameters have been obtained and compared. The experimental results show that each realisation performs better for different points of the parameter space.
