An Improved Low-Cost Adaptive Bilinear Image Interpolation Algorithm
Image scaling is a very important technique and has been widely used in many image and video processing applications. To achieve the goal of low cost and real time, a novel scaling algorithm is proposed which consists of a bilinear interpolation and an adaptive sharpening filter. The proposed sharpening filter is added to perfect the blurring effects existing in traditional bilinear interpolation methods. Simultaneously, we also verify the scaling quality by taking into account the adaptive technology. Compared with the previous bilinear techniques, our method performs better in terms of both quantitative evaluation and visual quality.
