Image Statistics Functions

This chapter describes the Intel® IPP image processing functions that can be used to compute the following statistical parameters of an image:
  • sum, integrals, mean and standard deviation of pixel values
  • intensity histogram of pixel values
  • minimum and maximum pixel values
  • spatial and central moments of order 0 to 3
  • the infinity,
    , and
    norms of the image pixel values and of the differences between pixel values of two images
  • relative error values for the infinity,
    , and
    norms of differences between pixel values of two images
  • universal image quality index
  • proximity measures of an image and a template (another image).

Product and Performance Information


Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
