Cross-channel regularisation for joint demosaicking and intrinsic lens deblurring

, Alimohammad Latif, Reza Azizi
Here, the authors present an effective regularisation approach to colour image demosaicking. The authors’ work is inspired by the interesting observation that the cross-channel dependencies of high-frequency details of a colour image are supposed to correspond in all the main colour channels acquired by the sensor. Therefore, minimising their difference in the demosaicking process can significantly improve the quality of the reconstructed image. The authors also demonstrate that mosaicked image formation strictly depends on the intrinsic lens blur. Hence, in the authors’ solution to the image demosaicking as an inverse imaging problem, they take the lens blur characteristics into account. The proposed regularisation method is also based on the fact that sensor saturation significantly alters the distribution of pixel intensity and Gaussian noise. The authors develop an efficient solution to the problem via the alternating direction method of multipliers numerical solver. As a result of these steps, the proposed demosaicking approach significantly enhances the quality of reconstructed images. Experimental results and quantitative evaluations demonstrate that the proposed method outperforms the existing image demosaicking methods.
