Denoising in Photography and VideoMS14

The problem of removing noise from images has a long and rich history. Despite the vast amount of literature and the quality of current algorithms, it remains an open challenge. This is especially true when using photo, video and cinema cameras, where the push towards ever increasing resolution and dynamic range implies ever increasing demands on denoising performance. This minisymposium presents state of the art methods that cover representative, but in no way exhaustive, aspects in this field, from noise models to algorithm evaluation, from fast real-time in-camera techniques to powerful and computationally intensive methods for off-line processing.
