Abstract or description

This paper develops a novel image/video enhancement technique that integrates a physics-based image formation model, the dichromatic model, with a retina-inspired computational model, multiscale model of adaptation. In particular, physics-based features (e.g. Power Spectral Distribution of the dominant illuminant in the scene and the Surface Spectral Reflectance of the objects contained in the image are estimated and are used as inputs to the multiscale model for adaptation. The results show that our technique can adapt itself to scene variations such as a change in illumination, scene structure, camera position and shadowing and gives superior performance over the original model.
