Fields of Activity
The laboratory was established, in the nighties by Tamás Szirányi, for the research and development of image related engineering and scientific problems and for the education of those areas. Over the last two decades the research activity spread over the following areas: image recognition and segmentation, image-based human-machine interfaces; video- and motion analysis; image- and video compression and retrieval; parallel image processing techniques and embedded systems (FPGAs); and the application of artificial neural networks.
Most significant results achieved in the laboratory:
- Analysis of airborne images for the estimation of urbanization
- Motion detection for surveillance and moving cameras
- Hidden Markov Models for video segmentation and unusual event detection
- Methods for film restauration: automatic stabilization and blotch detection
- Method for hand gesture recognition and camera-based human-computer interface,
- Method for the estimation of compression ratio and image quality for H.264
- Object recognition with lightweight devices

About the Head of Laboratory
László Czúni got his MSc diploma in 1996, and his PhD in 2001 from computer science. He started his career as an engineer, then became a senior research fellow, and now he is an associate professor at the University of Pannonia. His research and teaching interest cover different areas of digital image processing and pattern recognition. He has published more than 80 conference and journal articles, 3 international patterns, and is the co-author of 4 textbooks. He is the principal investigator of several research projects with national and international firms, and with educational and research institutes. László Czúni was the head and the member of the governing board of KÉPAF (Hungarian Association for Image Processing and Pattern Recognition).
