Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Histogram modification based image enhancement algo-rithms have been extensively used in 2-D image applications. In this letter, we apply a histogram modification framework to stereoscopic image en-hancement. The proposed algorithm estimates the histogram of a stereo image pair without explicitly computing the pixel-wise disparity. Then, the histogram in the occluded regions is estimated and used to determine the target histogram of the stereo image. Experimental results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm.
