Motion Adaptive Signal Integration-High Dynamic Range (MASI-HDR) Video Processing for Dynamic Platforms



Piacentino, M. R., Berends, D. C., Zhang, D. C., & Gudis, E. (2013, 1-2 May). Motion adaptive signal integration-high dynamic range (MASI-HDR) video processing for dynamic platforms. Paper presented at the Airborne Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance (ISR) Systems and Applications X, Baltimore, MD.


Two of the biggest challenges in designing U×V vision systems are properly representing high dynamic range scene content using low dynamic range components and reducing camera motion blur. SRI’s MASI-HDR (Motion Adaptive Signal Integration-High Dynamic Range) is a novel technique for generating blur-reduced video using multiple captures for each displayed frame while increasing the effective camera dynamic range by four bits or more. MASI-HDR processing thus provides high performance video from rapidly moving platforms in real-world conditions in low latency real time, enabling even the most demanding applications on air, ground and water.
