Title (EN) LIGHT LEVEL ADAPTIVE FILTER AND METHOD
(FR) FILTRE ADAPTATIF DE NIVEAU DE LUMIÈRE ET PROCÉDÉ
Abstract:
(EN) A system includes an image sensor, an imaging pipeline, and a display device. The image sensor is configured to capture a first frame of pixel data. The imaging pipeline is coupled to the image sensor to receive the first frame of pixel data. The imaging pipeline includes an adaptive noise filter. The adaptive noise filter is configured to filter a pixel based on noise in the pixel. The imaging pipeline is configured to output a second frame of pixel data. The second frame of pixel data includes pixels filtered by the adaptive noise filter, The display device is coupled to the imaging pipeline to receive the second frame of pixel data. The display device being configured to display the second frame of pixel data.
(FR) L’invention concerne un système qui comprend un capteur d’image, un pipeline d’imagerie et un dispositif d’affichage. Le capteur d’image est conçu pour capturer une première trame de données de pixel. Le pipeline d’imagerie est couplé au capteur d’image pour recevoir la première trame de données de pixel. Le pipeline d’imagerie comprend un filtre de bruit adaptatif. Le filtre de bruit adaptatif est conçu pour filtrer un pixel sur la base du bruit dans le pixel. Le pipeline d’imagerie est conçu pour distribuer une seconde trame de données de pixel. La seconde trame de données de pixel comprend des pixels filtrés par le filtre de bruit adaptatif. Le dispositif d’affichage est couplé au pipeline d’imagerie pour recevoir la seconde trame de données de pixel. Le dispositif d’affichage est conçu pour afficher la seconde trame de données de pixel.
