摘要：In this paper, we propose an effective directional Bayer color filter array (CFA) demosaicking algorithm based on residual interpolation (RI). The proposed directional interpolation algorithm aims to reduce computational complexity and get more accurate interpolated pixel values in the complex edge areas. We use the horizontal and vertical weights to combine and smooth color difference estimations. Compared with four directional weights in minimized Laplacian residual interpolation, the proposed algorithm not only guarantees the quality of color images but also reduces the computational complexity. Generally, the directional estimations may be inaccurately calculated because of the false edge information in irregular edges. We alleviate it by using a new method to calculate the directional color difference estimations. Experimental results show that the proposed algorithm provides outstanding performance compared with some previous algorithms, especially in the complex edge areas. In addition, it has lower computational complexity and better visual effect.
