Abstract: In this paper a spatially growing modified median filter method has been proposed for the restoration of digital videos which are adulterated by the saturated impulse noise i.e., salt-and pepper noise. The proposed denoising process executes filtering action only to the corrupted pixels in the video keeping noise free pixels in the video unharmed. The current study has used a spatially growing window method for the exclusion of high density noise present in the digital videos. It has used sliding window of increasing dimension centered at any pixel and sequentially swapped the noise corrupted pixels by the median value of the trimmed window. However, if the whole pixels in the window are noise corrupted then the dimension of sliding window is enlarged in order to obtained the noise free pixels for median computing. At the same time, this process has been found to be capable to removing the high density salt and pepper noise and also well preserved the fine details of the videos. Experimentally, it has been found that the proposed method generate enhanced PSNR and SSIM results.
