Generalized Signal-Dependent Noise Model and Parameter Estimation for Natural Images
Elsevier Signal Porcessing
The goal of this paper is to propose a generalized signal-dependent noise model that is more appropriate to describe a natural image acquired by a digital camera than the conventional Additive White Gaussian Noise model widely used in image processing. This non-linear noise model takes into account effects in the image acquisition pipeline of a digital camera. In this paper, an algorithm for estimation of noise model parameters from a single image is designed. Then the proposed noise model is applied with the Local Linear Minimum Mean Square Error filter to design an efficient image denoising method.
