Imaging and Colour

  1. Challenges of colour processing and ISP tuning

    Frederic Guichard | Chief Scientist and Co-Founder of DxO Labs

    • The miniaturisation of the camera has increased camera system complexity and in particular ISP complexity
    • This translates into many challenges in ISP tuning towards an ever increasing image quality demand
    • We will illustrate this by showing some of the challenges of color processing in miniaturised cameras
  2. Quantum Efficiency and Color

    Jörg Kunze | Teamleader NewTech of Basler

    • What are quantum efficiency (QE) spectra, how are they currently presented, and how can we improve?
    • What do perfect color QE spectra look like and what are the consequences of deviations?
    • How we can characterize QE spectra with a few meaningful numbers? This includes the introduction of the novel Sensor Color Ambiguity number
    • Why does Basler have a six-axes color adjustment and what does it do?

Looking to the Future and What's Next?
