Abstract

Recovery of spectral reflectances of objects being imaged through the use of sensor responses is important to reproduce color images under various illuminations. Although the Wiener estimation is usually used for the recovery, the recovery performance of the estimation depends on the autocorrelation matrix of the spectral reflectances and the noise present in an image acquisition system. The purpose of the present paper is to show that the Wiener estimation with the noise variance estimated by the previous proposal [ IEEE Trans. Image Process. 16, 1848 (2006) ] and with the autocorrelation matrix that uses the features of the spectral reflectances recovered by the previous method is very effective in greatly improving the performance.
