Abstract:

The conventional methods for image enhancement cannot be satisfactorily applied to the restoration of many types of images. This report explores standard image enhancement algorithms with emphasis on possible extensions to allow for real-time applications. The artifacts introduced by compression algorithms can often be compensated for by proper restoration techniques. A desktop conferencing system is prototyped in this report as a test-bed application to evaluate both real-time compression and real-time enhancement algorithms.
