Images/videos of outdoor scenes are usually degraded by the turbid medium in the atmosphere. In this paper, a novel single image-based dehazing framework is proposed to remove haze effects from image/video, where we propose two novel image priors, called the pixel-based dark channel prior and the pixel-based bright channel prior. Based on the two priors with the haze imaging model, we propose to accurately estimate the atmospheric light via haze density analysis. We can then accurately estimate the transmission map, followed by refining it via the bilateral filter. As a result, high-quality haze-free image can be recovered with lower computational complexity, which can be naturally extended to video dehazing.
