  • Publication number: 20230419463
    Abstract: A method and system for tone-mapping an image includes determining a tone-curve based on a model of image contrast distortion between the input image and a tone-mapped image and tone-mapping the input image according to the determined tone-curve. Determining the tone curve includes analytically calculating values of the tone-curve that reduce the image contrast distortion within the model of image contrast distortion. A tone-mapping operator includes a noise model generator and a tone-mapping module operable to receive one or more contextual parameters. The tone-mapping module includes an edge-stopping filtering submodule for extracting a base layer and detail layer of the input image, a tone-curve generating submodule and a combining submodule for combining the base layer and detail layer. At least one of the edge-stopping filtering submodule, the tone-curve generating submodule and combining submodule is adjustable based on the contextual parameters.

  • Publication number: 20220067431
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a computer implemented method for representing a data set comprising at least one n dimensional data element representing visual information, said method comprising obtaining (210) said data set, obtaining (220) a dictionary ensemble comprising a plurality of dictionaries each comprising at least one basis function (102), assigning (230) each at least one data element to a dictionary, wherein a set of basis functions represents an m dimensional transformation domain, transforming (240) the at least one data element with the corresponding dictionary of basis functions to the transformation domain wherein each data element is defined by an associated coefficient set, sparsifying (250) the coefficient sets, forming (260) the representation of the visual information comprising a coefficient data set and the corresponding dictionaries.
