Template based Inter-Layer Prediction for High Dynamic Range Scalable compression

Abstract : This paper presents a scalable high dynamic range (HDR) image coding framework in which the base layer is a low dynamic range (LDR) version of the image that may have been generated by an arbitrary Tone Mapping Operator (TMO). Our method successfully handles the case of complex local TMOs thanks to a block-wise and non-linear approach. A novel template based Inter Layer Prediction (ILP) is designed in order to perform the inverse tone mapping of a block without the need to transmit any additional parameter to the decoder. This method enables the use of a more accurate inverse tone mapping model than the simple linear regression commonly used for block-wise ILP. Our experiments have shown an average bitrate saving of 34% on the HDR enhancement layer, compared to state of the art methods.
