Paper Abstract

In this presentation we show how antialiasing can be achieved through image processing. Bandlimited images have their bandwidths extended using non-linear image restoration techniques. In these images the spatial frequencies within the passband are known but not the correct irradiance at nay point in the scene. In antialiasing however converse is true. When the bandwidth is to be increased by a factor of two the irradiance at alternate picture points is known but not the correct spectrum. Nevertheless bandwidth extension and removal of aliasing is possible using these non-linear techniques. They have been applied to real imagery using a recently developed 2D Lorentzian algorithm which has then bee used to further enhance the images.
