  • Publication number: 20190164262
    Abstract: A system and methods is provided for performing, by a processor, an initial tone mapping function on a first image to produce a second image. The first and second images are of different dynamic ranges. The method also includes applying, by the processor, a second tone mapping function to the second image when it contains any saturated portions. The second tone mapping function lowers luminance by a first fraction. The overall luminance of the second image is also determined and a fine tuning filter is applied when at least portions of said second image contain areas darker than an amount.

  • Patent number: 10009590
    Abstract: In an image processing method to display a stereoscopic image on a target screen, a disparity information (200) is associated with the stereoscopic image and is adapted for the display of the stereoscopic image on an original screen, the size of the original screen being different from the size of the target screen, the stereoscopic image comprising a first image (20) and a second image (21). In order to optimize the disparity of the stereoscopic image, the method comprises selecting a part of said first image according to at least one property associated with the first image; calculating a target disparity information associated with the selected part of the image according to the viewing conditions associated with the target screen and the original disparity information associated with the selected part of the first image.
