Measurement and Analysis of Real Imaging Systems
MetadataShow full item record
This paper is devoted to statistical analysis of noise generated in real imaging systems and noise suppression methods. The introductory part is focused on description of imaging systems, image degradations, and noise types present in them. The noise analysis section includes determination of basic noise characteristics, the probability distribution and dependence on the signal. The described methods are used to compare properties of two digital still cameras: Nikon D70 and Canon EOS 500D and video camera: JAI CM-040GE. The section devoted to noise suppression discusses different methods of wavelet coefficients thresholding and threshold estimation. The wavelet coefficients are produced by two forms of the wavelet transform: the discrete wavelet transform and the dual-tree complex wavelet transform. The described noise suppression methods are applied to the data sets which were acquired by the analyzed systems under poor lighting conditions.
