New journal paper in JIST

Master student Vincent Whannou de Dravo and Prof. Jon Yngve Hardeberg has published the paper "Multiscale Approach for Dehazing Using the STRESS Framework" in Journal of Imaging Science and Technology. The paper presents a new dehazing algorithm based on the STRESS (Spatio-Temporal Retinex-inspired Envelope with Stochastic Sampling) model. Experiments show that the approach yields more visibility—based on some metrics and psychophysical tests—than most of the state-of-the-art approaches.

New research project to the Colourlab

New research project to the Colourlab

The project "CCSF-Quality: Defining new Chromatic Contrast Sensitivity Functions for improved quality assessment and quality enhancement" has been funded through the FRIPRO mobility scheme by the Research Council of Norway. The project includes a three-year post doctoral researcher, and is a collaboration project between the Colourlab and the Univeristy of Paris 13. The project aims at defining new chromatic contrast sensitivity functions, and using these to improve image quality assessment and enhance images and video.

FRIPRO Toppforsk project award to the Colourlab

FRIPRO Toppforsk project award to the Colourlab

The Colourlab has been award a FRIPRO Toppforsk research project by the Research Council of Norway. The Toppforsk program gives long-term financing for projects to built world-leading research groups. Out of 172 applications, 46 project were funded. The project "Measuring and Understanding Visual Appearance" is led by Prof. Jon Yngve Hardeberg, and focus on gaining new knowledge of how human beings perceive the visual appearance of materials, objects, and scenes, and to develop new methodologies for measuring and communicating visual appearance and appearance-related material and object properties.
