Modern Image Quality Assessment (Synthesis Lectures on Image, Video, & Multimedia Processing)

Buy
This book is about objective image quality assessment—where the aim is to provide computational models that can automatically predict perceptual image quality. The early years of the 21st century have witnessed a tremendous growth in the use of digital images as a means for representing and communicating information. A considerable percentage of this literature is devoted to methods for improving the appearance of images, or for maintaining the appearance of images that are processed. Nevertheless, the quality of digital images, processed or otherwise, is rarely perfect. Images are subject to distortions during acquisition, compression, transmission, processing, and reproduction. To maintain, control, and enhance the quality of images, it is important for image acquisition, management, communication, and processing systems to be able to identify and quantify image quality degradations. The goals of this book are as follows; a) to introduce the fundamentals of image quality assessment, and to explain the relevant engineering problems, b) to give a broad treatment of the current state-of-the-art in image quality assessment, by describing leading algorithms that address these engineering problems, and c) to provide new directions for future research, by introducing recent models and paradigms that significantly differ from those used in the past. The book is written to be accessible to university students curious about the state-of-the-art of image quality assessment, expert industrial R&D engineers seeking to implement image/video quality assessment systems for specific applications, and academic theorists interested in developing new algorithms for image quality assessment or using existing algorithms to design or optimize other image processing applications.

The topic of image quality assessment has been around for more than four decades. But the last five years have seen a sudden acceleration in progress and interest in the area. This has corresponded with a rapid rise in interest in digital imaging in general, driven by technological advances and by the ubiquity of digital images and videos on the Internet. Modern Image Quality Assessment has three expressed goals: . Introduce the fundamentals of image quality assessment, and to explain the relevant engineering problems . Provide a broad treatment of the current state-of-the-art in image quality assessment by describing leading algorithms that address engineering problems under different assumptions . Provide new directions for future research, by introducing recent models and paradigms that significantly differ from those used in the past The book is intended for a wide readership. It will be accessible to university students curious about the state-of-the-art of image quality assessment, expert industrial R&D engineers seeking to implement image/video quality assessment systems for specific applications, and academic theorists interested in developing new algorithms for image quality assessment or using existing algorithms to design or optimize other image processing applications.
