Andrew J Patti, M Ibrahim Sezan, P Erhan Eren: System for creating a high resolution image from a sequence of lower resolution motion images. Eastman Kodak Company, Thomas H Close, December 9, 1997: US05696848 (122 worldwide citation)

A robust system, adaptive to motion estimation accuracy, for creating a high resolution image from a sequence of lower resolution motion images produces a mapping transformation for each low resolution image to map pixels in each low resolution image into locations in the high resolution image. A co ...

David S Taubman, Andrew J Patti: Analog video frame capture and preview. Hewlett Packard Co, October 2, 2001: US06297851 (42 worldwide citation)

A method and system for capturing analog video data and previewing still video images of the captured analog video data without converting the analog video data into digital image data. The system takes analog video data and converts the data into raw digitized video data. The raw digitized video da ...

Andrew J Patti, Jonathan K Riek, M Ibrahim Sezan: Contour-sensitive, single-field deinterlacing method. National Science Council, Madson & Metcalf, February 11, 1997: US05602654 (39 worldwide citation)

The present invention is a two-step, contour-sensitive deinterlacing technique. The first step of the technique determines for each missing pixel of an interlaced frame of image pixels whether the absolute difference between the pixels above and below the missing pixel is greater than a preselected ...

M Ibrahim Sezan, Andrew J Patti: Mechanism for controllably deinterlacing sequential lines of video data field based upon pixel signals associated with four successive interlaced video fields. Eastman Kodak Company, Peyton C Watkins, May 28, 1996: US05521644 (33 worldwide citation)

A hybrid deinterlace mechanism employs motion detection as a precursor to select the value for each missing pixel of a deinterlaced frame, which is generated by using four consecutive fields to produce a motion detection map that is subsequently coupled to a deinterlacer, together with a selected tw ...

M Ibrahim Sezan, Andrew J Patti: System and method for creating high-quality stills from interlaced video. Eastman Kodak Company, Thomas H Close, November 26, 1996: US05579054 (32 worldwide citation)

A system and method for creating a high quality still image from a series of interlaced video fields of the type employing local motion detection between first and third fields of the series, merging the first and second fields in areas of no motion and performing spatial interpolation on the first ...

M Ibrahim Sezan, Andrew J Patti: Mechanism for controllably deinterlacing sequential lines of video data field based upon pixel signals associated with three successive interlaced video fields. Eastman Kodak Company, Peyton C Watkins, December 5, 1995: US05473383 (22 worldwide citation)

A hybrid deinterlace mechanism employs motion detection as a precursor to select the value for each missing pixel of a deinterlaced frame. If the missing pixel is found to belong to a steady or non-motion portion of the image, then its value is replaced by the corresponding value in the adjacent fie ...

Andrew J Patti: Method for generated resolution enhanced still images from compressed video data. Hewlett Packard Company, October 16, 2001: US06304682 (14 worldwide citation)

A method for generating a high-resolution image from a plurality of low-resolution images generated from quantized coefficients in the spatial frequency domain and the uncertainties in the quantized coefficients. The method generates a set of linear inequalities relating the quantized coefficients, ...

Andrew J Patti: Motion-based, multi-stage video segmentation with motion boundary refinement. Hewlett Packard Development Company, September 3, 2013: US08526674 (3 worldwide citation)

A motion-based, multi-stage segmentation of a video frame is provided. A first segmentation stage identifies motion boundaries in a plurality of sub-blocks of the video frame. The motion boundaries are identified by computing an occlusion-insensitive localized motion cost and minimizing a MAP-MRF en ...
