Title: Analysis of image noise in multispectral color acquisition
Author: Burns, Peter
Abstract: The design of a system for multispectral image capture will be influenced by the imaging application, such as image archiving, vision research, illuminant modification or improved (trichromatic) color reproduction. A key aspect of the system performance is the effect of noise, or error, when acquiring multiple color image records and processing of the data. This research provides an analysis that allows the prediction of the image-noise characteristics of systems for the capture of multispectral images. The effects of both detector noise and image processing quantization on the color information are considered, as is the correlation between the errors in the component signals. The above multivariate error-propagation analysis is then applied to an actual prototype system. Sources of image noise in both digital camera and image processing are related to colorimetric errors. Recommendations for detector characteristics and image processing for future systems are then discussed.
