2015 Color Image and Video Enhancement  
Enhancement of digital images and video sequences is the process of increasing the quality of the visual information by improving its visibility and perceptibility. Enhancement is a necessary step in image/video processing applications when the conditions under which a scene is captured result in quality degradation, e.g., increased/decreased brightness and/or contrast, distortion of colors, and introduction of noise and other artifacts such as blotches and streaks. Unfortunately, most of the

The multivariate nature of color image/video data presents considerable challenges for researchers and practitioners as the numerous methods developed for single channel data are often not directly applicable to multichannel data.
