We present a new 3D Fuzzy Directional (3D-FD) algorithm for the denoising of video colour sequences corrupted by impulsive noise. The proposed approach consists of the estimations of movement levels, noise in the neighborhood video frames, permitting to preserve the edges, fine details and chromaticity characteristics in video sequences. Experimental results show that the noise in these sequences can be efficiently removed by the proposed 3D-FD filter, and that the method outperforms other state of the art filters of comparable complexity on video sequences. Finally, hardware requirements are evaluated permitting real time implementation on DSP EVM DM642.
