We present a fast 8-bit median filter implementation based on a separability argument. Our strategy is to start with a naive separable implementation of the median filter which displays O(1) time complexity per pixel, and then optimize this implementation to reduce the time constant. The optimizations that we employ include (a) lowering the histogram memory requirements by using unsigned shorts or bytes as histogram elements, (b) consolidating operations by performing multiple short additions… CONTINUE READING
