Iterative-Interpolation Super-Resolution Image by Vivek Bannore

By Vivek Bannore

This publication provides a unique and hybrid, computationally effective, reconstruction scheme for fixing the matter of super-resolution recovery of high-resolution photos from sequences of geometrically warped, aliased and under-sampled low-resolution pictures. The scheme proposed is referred because the Iterative-Interpolation Super-Resolution (IISR) procedure. The optimization-based strategy for super-resolution is reinvestigated for comparative research to judge the accuracy and potency of the IISR strategy. the numerous impact of the regularization time period over the constancy of reconstruction is usually analysed. The IISR process addresses the matter of super-resolution photograph enhancement when it comes to protecting optimum constancy of reconstruction and a low computational price to accomplish greatest applicability of super-resolution to the real-world applications.
