This work introduces a novel way to reduce point-wise noise introduced or exacerbated by image enhancement methods leveraging the Random Spray sampling approach. Due to the nature of the spray, the sampling structure used, output images for such methods tend to exhibit noise with unknown distribution. The proposed noise reduction method is based on the assumption that the non-enhanced image is either free of noise or contaminated by non-perceivable levels of noise. The dual-tree complex wavelet transform is applied to the luma channel of both the nonenhanced and enhanced image. The standard deviation of the energy for the non-ehanced image across the six orientations is computed and normalized. The normalized map obtained is used to shrink the real coefficients of the enhanced image decomposition. A noise reduced version of the enhanced version can then be computed via the inverse transform. A thorough numerical analysis of the results has been performed in order to confirm the validity of the proposed approach.

More about this publication?
  • Started in 2002 and merged with the Color and Imaging Conference (CIC) in 2014, CGIV covered a wide range of topics related to colour and visual information, including color science, computational color, color in computer graphics, color reproduction, volor vision/psychophysics, color image quality, color image processing, and multispectral color science. Drawing papers from researchers, scientists, and engineers worldwide, DGIV offered attendees a unique experience to share with colleagues in industry and academic, and on national and international standards committees. Held every year in Europe, DGIV papers were more academic in their focus and had high student participation rates.
