In the field of image processing, there are problems called “labeling”, which assign appropriate label to each pixel. Cost-volume filtering (CVF) is a method which can solve labeling problems efficiently with high accuracy. We proposed a fast method based on CVF, featuring region splitting and voting. While keeping the accuracy, our method reduces the computational complexity of CVF by truncating redundant candidate labels in each local region.
