Abstract:

The purpose of the paper was to develop a model of the photographic process which can be used in solving a number of important problems related to the analysis and synthesis of actual photographic systems the most important of these are the determination of the information content of photographic data, the determination of the optimal procedure for extracting data from photographic negatives optimal microdensitometry, the determination of optimal methods of encoding and decoding of optical images using photographic systems for their transmission. The probabilistic character of the photographic process is discussed and a probabilistic model of such a process is proposed. An analytical comparison between the fundamental characteristics of the actual photographic process and its developed model has shown that they are in good agreement. Author
