Noise can significantly impact the effectiveness of video processing algorithms. This paper proposes a fast white-noise variance estimation that is reliable even in images with large textured areas. This method finds intensity-homogeneous blocks first and then estimates the noise variance in these blocks, taking image structure into account. This paper proposes a new measure to determine homogeneous blocks and a new structure analyzer for rejecting blocks with structure. This analyzer is based… CONTINUE READING
