Image enlargement is mostly carried out by software and it becomes an important research topic in image processing. Traditionally, image enlargement is magnified by a single image. Because the information is only from one image, the quality of the image is greatly constrained.
Super-resolution enlargement algorithm is proposed that uses multiple frames as additional information to estimate the high-resolution image. If we have enough observed sequential low-resolution images with subpixel shifts, the reconstruction of high-resolution image can be computed. Two major problems in super-resolution enlargement are the motion estimation and the super-resolution algorithm. The super-resolution algorithm takes the observed low-resolution images with the estimated motion as the inputs and produces a high-resolution image. The method utilizes both the spatial and temporal information of an image sequence to create a higher resolution image.
In this thesis, a complete system based on super-resolution enlargement algorithm is proposed for image sequence enlargement of the multi-object movement. We use multiple blocks matching to solve image sequence enlargement of the multi-object movement. Then, we take both the sum of absolute difference (SAD) and the normalized cross-correlation (NCC) as the criteria in the block matching. Both methods can be retrieved by each other and the accuracy of the block matching can be enhanced. And we do nothing for the non-moving regions in the image sequence. Therefore, the executing time is reduced.
In this study, the proposed method achieves better magnification quality than the traditional one. Besides, both the visual and quantitative improvements especially in the high frequency are significant.
