This study proposes fast super-resolution algorithms to up-scale an input low-resolution image into a high-resolution image. Conventional learning-based super-resolution algorithms require large memory space to store a huge amount of synthesis information, and they require significant computation because of the large number of two-dimensional matching operations. To mitigate this problem, the authors train a dictionary using one-dimensional patch-based training and K-means clustering at the learning phase, and they use one-dimensional matching and interpolation based on the trained dictionary at the synthesis phase. Such one-dimensional content-adaptive interpolation is applied separately in horizontal and vertical directions. In addition, the authors propose a hybrid algorithm in which directional interpolation is utilised for vertical interpolation to further reduce the dictionary size and the so called staircase artefact. Simulation results show that the proposed algorithm has higher peak-to-peak signal-to-noise ratio (PSNR) and structure similarity (SSIM) values while providing significantly smaller dictionary size and faster computation than the latest learning-based super-resolution algorithm.
