digital color imaging • single-sensor camera • color filter array • Bayer pattern • demosaicking • image sharpening


This article introduces a new image sharpening approach suitable for single-sensor digital cameras equipped with a Bayer color filter array (CFA). The proposed solution firstly enhances the structural content of the captured CFA image data. Subsequent demosaicking of the enhanced CFA image data produces a visually pleasing full-color image which is noticeably sharper compared to the output of the traditional imaging pipeline. Results reported in this work suggest a three-fold processing cost reduction when the new approach is followed. © 2007 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. Int J Imaging Syst Technol, 17, 123-131, 2007

Digital still color cameras sample the visible spectrum using an array of color filters overlaid on a CCD, such that each pixel samples only one color band. The resulting mosaic of color samples is processed to produce a high-resolution color image, such that a value of a color band not sampled at a certain location is estimated from its neighbors. This is often referred to as "demosaicking." The human retina has a similar structure, although the distribution of cones is not as regular. Motivated by the human visual system, we propose an adaptive demosaicking technique in the framework of bilateral filtering. This approach provides us with a means to denoise, sharpen, and demosaic the image simultaneously. The proposed method, along with a variety of existing demosaicking strategies, are run on synthetic images and real-world images for comparative purposes. A recently proposed image comparison measure geared specifically toward demosaicking has also been applied to these images to provide a performance measure. ©2003 SPIE and IS&T.
