Abstract

This paper presents an image quality enhancement of computational integral imaging reconstruction (CIIR) method by using a binary weighting mask on occlusion areas in elemental images. The proposed method utilizes a block-matching algorithm to estimate the occlusion areas in elemental images. Then, a binary weighting mask generated from the estimated occlusion area is applied to our CIIR method. This minimizes the overlapping effect of occluding objects in the reconstructed plane images and thus improves visual quality dramatically. To show the usefulness of our proposed scheme, we conduct several experiments and present the results. The experimental results indicate that our method is superior to the existing methods.
