Cell Applications and Solutions © 2006 IBM Research 4 IBM Confidential 10/03/11 Definitions First Stage: Computing the Histogram Parse the input image Count each distinct pixel value in the image Ex. for 8-bit pixels, the Max Pixel Value is 255, and array size is 256. Second Stage: Computing the normalized sum of histogram Store the sum of all the histogram values normalize by multiplying each element by (maximum-pixel- value/number of pixels). Third Stage: Transforming input image into output image Use the normalized array as a look up table for mapping the input image pixel value to the new set of values from stage
