Abstract

This paper proposes a new regularization scheme to address blind color image deconvolution. Conventional blind monochromatic image deconvolution algorithms handle each color channel independently, thereby ignoring the inter-channel correlation present in the color images. Further, most existing blind color deconvolution algorithms do not take the parametric information of the blurs into consideration. In view of these, a regularization scheme is proposed to perform blind color image deconvolution. A new regularization operator is developed in the blur domain. A reinforcement blur modeling scheme is adopted to evaluate the relevance of manifold parametric blur structures, and the information is integrated into the deconvolution scheme. In addition, a regularization scheme for image is developed to recover edges of color images and reduce color artifacts. Experimental results show that the method is able to achieve satisfactory restored color images under noisy environment.
