Paper Abstract

This paper presents a new "Plane of Minimum Variation" (PMV) image preprocessing technique. After this preprocessing a three-dimentional(3 -D) image, while still containing information in temporal direction, can be further processed by 2-D methods. For each current pel, the PMV technique localizes a plane in 3-D image representation. This plane contains those pels from the current pel's neighborhood whose luminance values are close to the luminance of the current pel. Based on parameter V, which is a measure of the "closeness", two realizations of the PMV technique are presented. The results of the simulation show that by using the PMV technique, parameter V can be improved (decreased) by 8-12 dB, compared to the image which is not preprocessed by the PMV technique.
