HDR Image Compression by Integrated Surround Retinex Model
Abstract:In this paper, we propose a novel HDR image compression method by Fast Integrated Surround Retinex model. The proposed method has two novelties. First, multi-scale surround images are integrated to a single surround field, which is applied to Center/Surround Single-Scale Retinex model. The method reduces the “banding artifact” seen in normal SSR and simplifies the complicated computational steps in conventional Multi-Scale Retinex. Second, the introduction of Gaussian Pyramid cuts the computation time for generating a large-scale surround by tracing a “reduction” and “expansion” sequences using down and up sampling. The proposed model worked well in compressing the dynamic range and improving the visibility in heavy shadow areas of natural color images while preserving pleasing contrast.

For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
