The World vs. SCOTT - Synthesis of COncealment Two-level Texture

Julien Gosseaume, Kidiyo Kpalma, Joseph Ronsin

Abstract

We propose an original method of Synthesis of COncealment Two-level Texture (SCOTT). SCOTT was designed according to the Human Visual System so that the concealment texture is faithful to the visual environment it will be placed in, in terms of forms and colors. The results of simulation prove that the concealment texture is efficient although it is made of simple forms and only a few colors. Even if SCOTT has initially been designed for an application of reducing the visual pollution caused by manmade equipments (antenna, electrical cabinets, distributor boxes, repeater shelters, etc.), it may be used in many applications, such as inpainting, and even in image compression.
