Abstract
High dynamic range infrared image detail enhancement is an important processing procedure in the field of infrared (IR) imaging. Because of the dynamic range of natural scene image far beyond the human vision system, display equipment, and the high dynamic image transformed directly from high dynamic to low dynamic will cause detail information lost, it is essential to compress dynamic range of image and enhance detail. Aiming at the disadvantages of existing methods, high dynamic infrared image compressive enhancement based on fast local Laplacian filters were proposed. First, the fast local Laplacian filters are utilized to separate the image into a base layer and detail layer. Second, the dynamic range of base layer was compressed by using gamma correction in order to improve contrast. The detail layer is stretched by utilizing sigmoid function. Finally, the enhanced output image is obtained by recombining the detail layer and base layer. Compared with other methods such as histogram equalization, bilateral filtering, the experimental results demonstrated that the proposed method have a better performance in term of enhancing details and improving contrast by using evaluation index of image detail enhancement.
