Parameter Optimization for Content-based Image Enhancement
Abstract:In this paper, we present a content-based filtering technique to enhance scanned documents. An image classification step is performed to classify each pixel into text, background, and image regions. With the segmentation step, we can strongly sharpen text and similar edge detail while smoothing background and image content. To optimally select the segmentation parameters, we formulate a cost function to minimize the number of miss-classified pixels between classified test and reference images. This cost function is minimized using genetic algorithms.

For more than 25 years, NIP has been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in non-impact and digital printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems, including drop-on-demand ink jet, wide format ink jet, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based electrophotographic printers, production digital printing systems, and thermal printing systems, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields.
Since 2005, NIP has been held in conjunction with the Digital Fabrication Conference.
