For the modern multimedia devices, display resolution and image quality are actively improved nowadays. Although such improvement can produce the high visual perception for the observer, the power consumption becomes an inevasible problem as it is rising progressively. In order to achieve a good balance between visual perception and power consumption, we propose a histogram-based power saving algorithm to improve the image contrast for OLED display panels. The proposed algorithm modifies the empty bins of the image histogram as a pre-process of power reduction. Furthermore, the visual effect is compensated using the power saving histogram equalization algorithm. Experimental results show that the proposed algorithm not only decreases the display power to be lower than that of compared algorithms, but also generates the highly perceptual contrast of the images.
