A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11861849B2) discloses a video display system designed to showcase super-resolution video of moving objects without image artifacts. The system utilizes a series of microscanned images to achieve a higher frame rate than traditional super-resolution video. The system comprises an image detector, processor, and display generator. The processor analyzes subsets of microscanned images for spatial and temporal information to determine movement indications of the objects. It then generates super-resolution images and designates bounded areas around the moving objects for display. The display generator repeats the super-resolution images outside the bounded areas at the video frame rate while displaying consecutive microscanned images within the areas at the microscan image video frame rate, ensuring a seamless viewing experience.

Furthermore, the system includes a pan-and-tilt mechanism for acquiring microscanned images at periodic fields-of-view using a step-and-stare method. The processor can stretch or extrapolate the position of moving objects within bounded areas to enhance the display quality. Additionally, the display generator interpolates the microscanned images to fill the bounded areas using various techniques such as image interpolation and digital zoom. The system also features a microscanner with a shifting mechanism for controlled image acquisition and a platform that introduces random vibrations for uncontrolled image acquisition, providing versatility in capturing moving objects. Overall, the patent showcases a sophisticated video display system that ensures high-quality super-resolution video playback of moving objects with minimal image artifacts.
