MRF based text binarization in complex images using stroke feature


This paper presents a novel binarization technique for text images based on Markov Random Field (MRF) framework. We regard stroke as an obvious feature of text to produce clustering result, which will be optimized by MRF model combining color, texture, context features to get the final binarization. The main innovations of our method are: (1) the integrated… (More)
