Paper Abstract

Multi-frame super-resolution restoration refers to techniques for still-image and video restoration which utilize multiple observed images of an underlying scene to achieve the restoration of super-resolved imagery. An observation model which relates the measured data to the unknowns to be estimated is formulated to account for the registration of the multiple observations to a fixed reference frame as well as for spatial and temporal degradations resulting from characteristics of the optical system, sensor system and scene motion. Linear observation models, in which the observation process is described by a linear transformation, have been widely adopted. In this paper we consider the application of the linear observation model to multi-frame super-resolution restoration under conditions of non-affine image registration and spatially varying PSF. Reviewing earlier results, we show how these conditions relate to the technique of image warping from the computer graphics literature and how these ideas may be applied to multi-frame restoration. We illustrate the application of these methods to multi-frame super-resolution restoration using a Bayesian inference framework to solve the ill-posed restoration inverse problem.
