To achieve the best image quality, noise and artifacts are generally removed at the cost of a loss of details generating the blur effect. To control and quantify the emergence of the blur effect, blur metrics have already been proposed in the literature. By associating the blur effect with the edge spreading, these metrics are sensitive not only to the(More)
This article presents a new algorithm for spatial deinterlacing that could easily be integrated in a more complete deinterlacing system, typically a spatio-temporal motion adaptive one. The spatial interpolation part often fails to reconstruct close to horizontal lines with a proper continuity, leading to highly visible artifacts. Our system preserves the(More)
The chemical contamination levels of both conventional and organic meats were assessed. The objective was to provide occurrence data in a context of chronic exposure. Environmental contaminants (17 polychlorinated dibenzodioxins/dibenzofurans, 18 polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), 3 hexabromocyclododecane (HBCD) isomers, 6 mycotoxins, 6 inorganic compounds)(More)
This paper presents a method that detects edge orientations in still images. Edge orientation is a crucial information when one wants to optimize the quality of edges after different processings. The detection is carried out in the wavelet domain to take advantage of the multi-resolution features of the wavelet spaces, and locally adapts the resolution to(More)
