Rekonstruktion von Bilddaten von beliebig verteilten Pixelpositionen

Arbeitsgebiet: Videosignalverarbeitung und -übertragung
Schwerpunkt: Videoanalyse und Videoverarbeitung

Digital images are commonly represented as regular 2D arrays, so pixels are organized in form of a matrix addressed by integers. However, there are many image processing operations, such as rotation or motion compensation, that produce pixels at non-integer positions. These pixels have to be resampled onto the regular grid so the resulting image can be stored, displayed or further processed. This resampling can be alternatively seen as a reconstruction problem where the unknown pixels on the regular grid are recovered using the available samples at non-integer positions. Typically, existing image reconstruction techniques cannot handle samples at non-integer positions. This research focuses on developing a new technique that yields high quality reconstructions. These can be later employed for different purposes, ranging from super-resolution and refocusing to video coding and warping.

The following video offers a brief demonstration of how pixels located at non-integer positions affect the visual quality.
