This paper explores the difference in performance of spline wavelets of the bi-orthogonal type in de-noising images corrupted by Additive White Gaussian Noise. The dependence of the peak signal-to-noise ratio and the mean squared error on the filter characteristics of the wavelets, when stationary wavelet transform is used in the de-noising process, is investigated. It is found that the de-noising action augments with use of wavelet of lower effective length for its high pass reconstruction filter. For wavelets with equal effective lengths for their high pass reconstruction filters, a relation similar to the above, exists for the high pass decomposition filters. ‘Bior1.1’ (bi-orthogonal spline wavelet 1.1) is found to be the most suitable wavelet in the family, for de-noising. ‘Bior 3.1’ is found to be an odd member in the family and is not at all suitable for de-noising, the reason for which is traced to the lack of smoothness of its decomposition scaling function.
