We enhance underexposed, low dynamic range videos by adaptively and independently varying the exposure at each photoreceptor in a post-process. This virtual exposure is a dynamic function of both the spatial neighborhood and temporal history at each pixel. Temporal integration enables us to expand the image's dynamic range while simultaneously reducing noise. Our non-linear exposure variation and denoising filters smoothly transition from temporal to spatial for moving scene elements. Our… CONTINUE READING
