Human Visual System for Complexity Reduction of Image and Video Restoration
This paper focuses on the use of Human Visual System (HVS) rules for reducing the complexity of image and video restoration algorithms. Specifically, a fast HVS based block classification is proposed for distinguishing image blocks where restoration is necessary from the ones where it is useless. Some experimental results on standard test images and video sequences show the capability of the proposed method in reducing the computing time of de-noising algorithms, preserving the visual quality of the restored sequences.
