We propose a filtering method for optimal estimation of TFT-LCD's surface region except defect's region. To estimate the non-uniform intensity variation on TFT-LCD surface region, the 4-directional Gaussian filter based on image pyramid structure is proposed. The experimental result verified the proposed method's performance
