VEGA - UNIVERSAL
IMAGE PROCESSING SYSTEM
This site presents the Project VEGA. This
- Research in the areas of nonlinear image filtering and
- Development of the original image processing algorithms
in these areas;
- Development of the universal image processing software
system VEGA utilizing the original image processing algorithms
and many useful and powerful classical algorithms.
This site presents a brief overview
of original image processing algorithms developed during
the work on the project. These algorithms are mostly based
on the original concept of Nonlinear Cellular Neural Filtering,
but not only. The algorithms presented here may be used for
the successful solving of such important problems as
The algorithms presented here are applicable in different
- Satellite imaging,
- Medical imaging,
- Forensics and security imaging,
- Graphic arts, etc.
The processing results obtained by our original
algorithms are significantly better than those obtained using
traditional classical approaches.
Together with a brief conceptual description
of the algorithms you can find here a number of examples
of the algorithms applications.
All the algorithms are utilized in the image
processing software system VEGA. This system contains a number
of useful classical image processing algorithms supplemented
by the original algorithms described here. The software is
developed for Windows NT/2000/XP.
A complete list of the algorithms
utilized in the system VEGA is also presented.
The software system is working, the development
of its first version was
finished recently. A process of the project development both
in mathematical and software directions is permanently continued.
The project was developing starting from
1990 under supervision of Dr.
Igor Aizenberg. It was supported during different periods
by a couple of small Russian and Israeli private companies.
In 1990-1996 the work was concentrated in Uzhgorod (Ukraine).
During last years the work was still continued in Uzhgorod
also as in Israel and Moscow (Russia).
Beginning from 1998-1999 the project team is stable. The
key people in the team are Dr.
Igor Aizenberg (project leader), Taras
Bregin and Constantine
Butakoff. During last years they worked together
in Israel. A part of the project (Image
Restoration, unbluring of image) is developing together with a research group
in Moscow (Dr. Nickolai Merzlyakov
(group leader), Dr.
Viktor Karnaukhov, Dr.
Olga Milukova) representing Institute for Information
Transmission Problems of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
A group of young programmers (Miroslav
Dobra, Ludvig Eder,
Dmitriy Paliy) beginning
from 1999 is working in Uzhgorod (Ukraine).
If you are interested we can send you
a CD with demo version. Please, address all the proposals
and reviews to Dr. Igor
Aizenberg (igor dot aizenberg at gmail dot com).
