In this paper, we present a system including a novel component called programmable aperture and two associated post-processing algorithms for high-quality light field acquisition. The shape of the programmable aperture can be adjusted and used to capture light field at full sensor resolution through multiple exposures without any additional optics and(More)
We propose a content-aware stereoscopic image display adaptation method which simultaneously resizes a binocular image to the target resolution and adapts its depth to the comfort zone of the display while preserving the perceived shapes of prominent objects. This method does not require depth information or dense correspondences. Given the specification of(More)
One common way to extend the battery life of a portable device is to reduce the LCD backlight intensity. In contrast to previous approaches that minimize the power consumption by adjusting the backlight intensity frame by frame to reach a specified image quality, the proposed method optimizes the image quality for a given backlight intensity. Image is(More)
Due to the sequential-readout structure of complementary metal-oxide semiconductor image sensor array, each scanline of the acquired image is exposed at a different time, resulting in the so-called electronic rolling shutter that induces geometric image distortion when the object or the video camera moves during image capture. In this paper, we propose an(More)
Belief propagation (BP) is an effective algorithm for solving energy minimization problems in computer vision. However, it requires enormous memory, bandwidth, and computation because messages are iteratively passed between nodes in the Markov random field (MRF). In this paper, we propose two methods to address this problem. The first method is a message(More)
This paper presents three novel schemes for integrating digital stabilizer with video codec of a digital video camera, each designed for a different application scenario. Scheme 1 confines the global motion estimation (ME) to within a small background region determined by clustering the motion vectors (MVs) generated by the video encoder. Scheme 2 performs(More)
This paper introduces 3D cinematography principles to the field of multimedia and illustrates their usage in stereoscopic media processing applications. These principles include (1) maintaining coordination among views, (2) having a continuous depth chart, (3) placing rest areas between strong 3D shots, (4) using a shallow depth of field for shots with(More)
Image formation is traditionally described by a number of individual models, one for each specific effect in the image formation process. However, it is difficult to aggregate the effects by concatenating such individual models. In this paper, we apply light transport analysis to derive a unified image formation model that represents the radiance along a(More)
Light field cameras capture full spatio-angular information of the light field, and enable many novel photographic and scientific applications. It is often stated that there is a fundamental trade-off between spatial and angular resolution, but there has been limited understanding of this trade-off theoretically or numerically. Moreover, it is very(More)
