Abstract
This paper presents a wavelet-domain Hidden Markov Tree(HMT)-based color image superresolution algorithm using multi-channel data fusion. Because there exists correlations among the three channels of a RGB color image, a channel by channel superresolution method almost certain leads to color distortion. In order to solve this problem, first the low-resolution color image is converted into a gray-scale image using the spatially-adaptive approach presented in this paper and the resulting gray-scale image must reflect the human perception of edges in the color image; then by superresolving this gray-scale image, a high-resolution image is obtained; finally, wavelet-domain HMT-based image superresolutions are performed for the three channels of the low-resolution color image using the same posterior state probabilities, which reflect the hidden states of the wavelet coefficients of the high-resolution gray-scale image obtained before, and thus the resulting high-resolution color image is what we desired. Becasue the correlations among the three channels of a RGB color image are considered, there are no color distortions in the reconstructed high-resolution image. Experimental results show that the reconstructed color images have high PSNR and are of high visual quality.
