 Abstract
In this paper, a new super-resolution algorithm is proposed by using successive frames for generating high-resolution frames with better quality than those generated by other conventional interpolation methods. Generally, each frame used for super-resolution must only have global translation and motions of sub-pixel unit to generate good result. However, the newly proposed MSR algorithm in this paper is exempt from such constraints. The proposed algorithm consists of three main processes; motion estimation for image registration, normalization of motion vectors, and pattern analysis of edges. The experimental results show that the proposed algorithm has better performance than other conventional algorithms.
