Shree Nayar: New Imaging Technology Breakthrough At Columbia Promises Richer, More Detailed Photography

New technology developed by researchers at Columbia University's Computer Vision Laboratory will allow cameras - film, digital or video - to capture a much broader range of light and color variations, promising richer and more detailed images. The invention, developed by Shree K. Nayar, professor of computer science, and his research team at Columbia's Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science, can enhance the range of measurable brightness values of virtually any imaging system - film or digital still and video cameras, as well as medical and industrial imaging systems based on X-ray, infra-red, synthetic aperture radar and magnetic resonance.
