The mismatch between the Low Dynamic Range (LDR) content and the High Dynamic Range (HDR) display arouses the research on inverse tone mapping algorithms. In this paper, we present a physiological inverse tone mapping algorithm inspired by the property of the Human Visual System (HVS). It first imitates the retina response and deduce it to be local(More)
Increasingly more computing power is demanded for contemporary applications such as multimedia, 3D visualization, and telecommunication. This paper presents a design space exploration (DSE) experience for an embedded VLIW processor that allows finding out the best architecture for given application. The proposed method has been implemented and tested using(More)
In recent years, image processing technics have attracted much attention as powerful tools in the assessment of skin lesions from multispectral images. The Kubelka–Munk Genetic Algorithm (KMGA) is a novel method which has been developed for this diagnostic purpose. It combines the Kubelka–Munk light–tissue interaction model with the Genetic Algorithm(More)
Modern FPGA chips, with their larger memory capacity and reconfigurability potential, are opening new frontiers in rapid prototyping of embedded systems. With the advent of high density FPGAs it is now possible to implement a high performance VLIW processor core in an FPGA. Architecture based on Very Long Instruction Word (VLIW) processors are an optimal(More)
Automatic detection of image damaged regions is the key to automatic video image inpainting. Vertical scratches are the common damages in the old film. In this paper, a vertical scratches detection algorithm based on edge detection is proposed. The proposed algorithm first uses the operator which has the largest response to the vertical edge in Sobel(More)
The development of high dynamic range (HDR) display arouses the research of inverse tone mapping methods, which expand dynamic range of the low dynamic range (LDR) image to match that of HDR monitor. This paper proposed a novel physiological approach, which could avoid artifacts occurred in most existing algorithms. Inspired by the property of the human(More)
