The method of image acquisition is one of the principal problems for handling very high resolution images. This paper presents a new scheme for acquiring high resolution pictures by processing stereo images. The method integrates low resolution images into a high resolution image. Analysis of the achievable passband is given from a point of view of the imager photodetector structure. Compared to an imaging device with equivalent resolution, it may be less sensitive to shot noise which becomes more dominant as the pixel size of an imager is further reduced. Preliminary experiments have shown clear improvements in the high frequencies and image details. In addition, a scheme for further increasing tlie resolution is mentioned.
