In this paper, we present the lifting scheme of wavelet bi-frames along with theory analysis, structure, and algorithm. We show how any wavelet bi-frame can be decomposed into a finite sequence of simple filtering steps. This decomposition corresponds to a factorization of a polyphase matrix of a wavelet bi-frame. Based on this concept, we present a new idea for constructing wavelet bi-frames. For the construction of symmetric bi-frames, we use generalized Bernstein basis functions, which enable us to design symmetric prediction and update filters. The construction allows more efficient implementation and provides tools for custom design of wavelet bi-frames. By combining the different designed filters for the prediction and update steps, we can devise practically unlimited forms of wavelet bi-frames. Moreover, we present an algorithm of increasing the number of vanishing moments of bi-framelets to arbitrary order via the presented lifting scheme, which adopts an iterative algorithm and ensures the shortest lifting scheme. Several construction examples are given to illustrate the results.
