Image fusion processing module

Last updated:

Abstract:

Embodiments relate to fusion processing between two images captured with two different exposure times to generate a fused image with a higher dynamic range. An unscaled single color version of a first image is blended with another unscaled single color version of a second image to generate an unscaled single color version of the fused image. A downscaled multi-color version of the first image is blended with a downscaled multi-color version of the second image to generate a downscaled multi-color version of the fused image of a plurality of downscaled versions of the fused image. A first downscaled multi-color version of the fused image is generated by upscaling and accumulating the plurality of downscaled versions of the fused image. The first downscaled multi-color version of the fused image has a pixel resolution lower than a pixel resolution of the unscaled single color version of the fused image.
