In this paper we address the problem of producing an enlarged picture from a given digital image (zooming). We propose a method that tries to take into account information about discontinuities or sharp luminance variations while doubling the input picture. This is realized by a multiple scan of the zoomed image and could hence be implemented with limited(More)
The widespread use of classic and newest technologies available on Internet (e.g., emails, social networks, digital repositories) has induced a growing interest on systems able to protect the visual content against malicious manipulations that could be performed during their transmission. One of the main problems addressed in this context is the(More)
The increasing use of low cost imaging devices and the innovations in terms of media distribution technologies induce a growing interest on technologies able to protect digital visual media against malicious manipulations of the visual contents. One of the main problems addressed in this research area is the blind detection of traces of forgery on an image(More)
This paper presents a video stabilization algorithm based on the extraction and tracking of scale invariant feature transform features through video frames. Implementation of SIFT operator is analyzed and adapted to be used in a feature-based motion estimation algorithm. SIFT features are extracted from video frames and then their trajectory is evaluated to(More)
This paper presents a novel and fully automatic technique to estimate depth information from a single input image. The proposed method is based on a new image classification technique able to classify digital images (also in Bayer pattern format) as indoor, outdoor with geometric elements or outdoor without geometric elements. Using the information(More)
We describe an automatic image enhancement technique based on features extraction methods. The approach takes into account images in Bayer data format, captured using a CCD/CMOS sensor and/or 24-bit color images; after identifying the visually significant features, the algorithm adjusts the exposure level using a " camera response "-like function; then a(More)
— The widespread diffusion of hand-held devices with video recording capabilities requires the adoption of reliable Digital Stabilization methods to enjoy the acquired sequences without disturbing jerkiness. In order to effectively get rid of the unwanted camera movements, an estimate of the global motion between adjacent frames is necessary. This paper(More)
Digital video stabilization allows to acquire video sequences without disturbing jerkiness, removing unwanted camera movements. In this paper we propose a novel fast video stabilization algorithm based on block matching of local motion vectors. Some of these vectors are properly filtered out by making use of ad-hoc rules taking into account local(More)
One of the key characteristics of digital images with a discrete representation is its pliability to manipulation. Recent trends in the field of unsupervised detection of digital forgery includes several advanced strategies devoted to reveal anomalies just considering several aspects of multimedia content. One of the promising approach, among others,(More)
