Progress in Color Nightvision

submitted by: alexandertoet
I present a sample based color transfer method that gives nightvision imagery a realistic color appearance. The method is specific for different types of materials in a scene and can easily be adapted for the intended operating theatre and the task at hand. Because of its simplicity the method is highly suitable for real-time implementations. In this presentation I will show some nighttime movies that have been registered with prototype camera systems that apply the new color mapping...

INVIS full color night vision system

submitted by: alexandertoet
The TNO INVIS system provides a real-time all-weather all-time full color image with a natural color appearance, by fusing Intensified Visual, Near-Infrared and Thermal imagery, using the TNO patented ''Color the Night'' false color mapping principle. The system also provides a virtual 3D representation of the observed environment, and includes a range of different real-time image enhancement techniques, like dynamic noise reduction and superresolution. The INVIS can be used for navigation...
