Benoit Sevigny: Image processing. Autodesk, Staas & Halsey, August 1, 2006: US07084879 (8 worldwide citation)

Apparatus is provided to flare-suppress a source frame. A distance value is defined that, for any pixel, describes how close its color is to a specified color, and the processing means calculates a transformation that maximizes the distance value of a selected background pixel. A flare value is then ...
