In this paper we present a 3D adaptive nonlinear filter, namely the 3D adaptive CPWLN, based on the Canonical Piece Wise-Linear Network with an LMS L-filter type of adaptation. This filter is used to equalize nonlinear channel effect and remove impulsive/or mixed impulsive and Additive White Gaussian noise from video sequences. First, motion compensation is performed by a robust estimator. Then, a 3-D CPWLN LMS L-filter is applied. The overall combination is able to adequately remove undesired effects of communication channel and noise. Computer simulations on real-world image sequences are included. The algorithm yields promising results in terms of both objective and subjective quality of the restored sequence.
