Bayer Demosaicking Using Optimized Mean Curvature over RGB channels

05/17/2017 ∙ by Rui Chen, et al. ∙ 0

Color artifacts of demosaicked images are often found at contours due to interpolation across edges and cross-channel aliasing. To tackle this problem, we propose a novel demosaicking method to reliably reconstruct color channels of a Bayer image based on two different optimized mean-curvature (MC) models. The missing pixel values in green (G) channel are first estimated by minimizing a variational MC model. The curvatures of restored G-image surface are approximated as a linear MC model which guides the initial reconstruction of red (R) and blue (B) channels. Then a refinement process is performed to interpolate accurate full-resolution R and B images. Experiments on benchmark images have testified to the superiority of the proposed method in terms of both the objective and subjective quality.
