Recently, as demand of video processor unit rapidly increases, excellent quality of the video has been required. However, generally, video data occurs the quick flame of video due to various external causes in process of acquisition, treatment, and transmission, and major cause of the quick flame of the video is known as the noise. There are various kinds of noise, which are added to the video, AWGN is a typical one. Thus, this thesis suggested algorithm that treats in three methods by scale of the edge through using edge information of local masks. In case that edge pixel is big, it applied spatial weighting according to equation of straight line about direction of edge pixel. In case that edge pixel is middle, it suggested algorithm with spatial weighting filter and average filter, and for the smooth territory, it suggested algorithm that treats with average filter.
