Vision Models and Applications to Image and Video Processing by Lisa J. Croner, Thomas Wachtler (auth.), Christian J. van

By Lisa J. Croner, Thomas Wachtler (auth.), Christian J. van den Branden Lambrecht (eds.)

I got here to imaginative and prescient technological know-how attempting to clear up an engineering challenge: i used to be attempting to get a hold of try out and size methodologies for electronic video structures. one of many metrics i needed to take advantage of was once a few dimension of photo caliber. After a few experiments and after an outline of the literature, I needed to become aware of that straightforward computational metrics, equivalent to the suggest sq. blunders, aren't very potent for this objective. This led me to check notions of imaginative and prescient technology and imaginative and prescient modeling. As an engineer, i discovered it attention-grabbing. imaginative and prescient technological know-how makes use of computational instruments and modeling suggestions which are similar to what we use in sign processing, but it brings you to a brand new area that lies on the intersection of engineering, biology and cognitive psychology. through the years, imaginative and prescient technology has made large contributions to engineering and to the sector of photo processing specifically. Such contributions contain part firming matrices for the printing undefined, colour correction for electronic cameras, quantization matrices for snapshot coding. As imaging units have gotten commodities, the effect of imaginative and prescient technological know-how is turning into much more major. This ebook is intended to entice an engineering viewers. it really is an advent to imaginative and prescient technology and to the layout and alertness of imaginative and prescient types in engineering. to accomplish this aim, we have now selected to arrange the publication round the major parts of imaginative and prescient models.

By Martin Eisemann, Felix Klose, Marcus Magnor (auth.), Daniel Cremers, Marcus Magnor, Martin R. Oswald, Lihi Zelnik-Manor (eds.)

With the quick improvement of video imaging expertise and the drastic advancements in CPU pace and reminiscence, either video processing and computational video have gotten an increasing number of well known. just like the electronic revolution in images of fifteen years in the past, this day electronic equipment are revolutionizing the best way tv and flicks are being made. With the appearance electronic motion picture cameras, electronic projector expertise for motion picture theaters, and 3D videos, the motion picture and
television construction pipeline is popping all-digital, commencing up
numerous new possibilities for how dynamic scenes are got, video pictures may be edited, and visible media should be experienced.

This state of the art survey offers a compilation of chosen articles due to a workshop on Video Processing and Computational Video, held at Dagstuhl fortress, Germany, in October 2010. The seminar introduced jointly junior and senior
researchers from laptop imaginative and prescient, special effects, and photo conversation, either from academia and undefined, to deal with the demanding situations in computational video. in this workshop, forty three researchers from world wide mentioned the state-of-the-art, modern demanding situations, and destiny examine in imaging,
processing, examining, modeling, and rendering of real-world, dynamic scenes.
