Real-time Super Resolution Algorithm for Security Cameras

Seiichi Gohshi

Abstract

Security is one of the most important things in our daily lives. Security camera systems have been introduced to keep us safe in shops, airports, downtowns, and other public spaces. Security cameras have infrared imaging modes for low-light conditions. However, infrared imaging sensitivity is low, and the quality of images recorded in low-light conditions is often poor as they do not always possess sufficient contrast and resolution; thus, infrared imaging devices produce blurry monochrome images and videos. A real-time nonlinear signal processing technique that improves the contrast and resolution of low-contrast infrared images and video is proposed. The proposed algorithm can be installed in a field programmable array.
