In this paper, we present an automated color transfer based video fusion method to attain real-time color night vision capability for night-time video surveillance. We utilize simple RGB Color transfer technique to fused pseudo colored video frames without conversion to any uncorrelated color space. We investigated that final color fusion results greatly depend on the selection of target color Image. Therefore, rather than using any arbitrary target color image based on mere general visual anticipation, we have automated target color image selection using structural similarity and color saturation. We further apply color enhancement to improve final appearance of color fused images. Subjective and objective quality evaluations greatly indicate the effectiveness of our color video fusion method for nighttime video surveillance applications. © 2010 IEEE.
