A simultaneous multi-frame super-resolution video reconstruction procedure, utilizing spatio-temporal smoothness constraints and motion estimator confidence parameters is proposed. The ill-posed inverse problem of reconstructing super-resolved imagery from the low resolution, degraded observations is formulated as a statistical inference problem and a… (More)
We present a new approach for improving the effective dynamic range of cameras by using multiple photographs of the same scene taken with different exposure times. Using this method enables the photographer to accurately capture scenes that contain high dynamic range by using a device with low dynamic range, which allows the capture of scenes that have both… (More)
This paper presents an approach for improving the effective dynamic range of cameras by using multiple photographs of the same scene taken with different exposure times. Using this method enables the photographer to accurately capture scenes that contain a high dynamic range, i.e., scenes that have both very bright and very dark regions. The approach… (More)
Multi-frame super-resolution restoration algorithms commonly utilize a linear observation model relating the recorded images to the unknown restored image estimates. Working within this framework, we demonstrate a method for generalizing the observation model to incorporate spatially varying point spread functions and general motion fields. The method… (More)
