wavelet
Last modified: Thursday, June 21, 2001 

A mathematical function used in compressing images. Images compressed using wavelets are smaller than JPEG images and can be transferred and downloaded at quicker speeds. Wavelet technology can compress color images from 20:1 to 300:1, grayscale images from 10:1 to 50:1.

See also wavelet compression.
