Emerging Methods for Color Image and Video Quality Enhancement

  1. Content type: Research Article

    The chroma noise effect seriously reduces the quality of digital images and videos, especially if they are acquired in low-light conditions. This paper describes the DCT-CNR (Discrete Cosine Transform-Chroma Nois...
