Abstract

Nonlinear estimation method of spectral reflectance from camera responses is proposed. The proposed method minimizes the mean square error of spectral reflectance when the reflectance can be regarded as a random sequence of Gaussian mixture distribution. In computer simulations, 168 samples of spectral reflectance from a color chart are estimated from their image signals obtained by three- and six-band cameras. It is confirmed that the proposed method improves the accuracy in comparison with the conventional Wiener estimation method.
