Motion compensated interlaced-to-progressive conversion (MC-IPC) methods employ implicit decision on whether to use the estimated motion vectors in order to prevent spurious errors due to poorly estimated motion vectors. This often limits the performance of the MC-IPC. We present an IPC method based on the pattern matching assisted motion estimation and motion vector histogram analysis. The proposed method employs an explicit decision on whether to use the estimated motion vectors. Extensive experiments show that high quality IPC can be achieved without spurious errors.
