Park B22 ¼ B22 B22 þ B24 B23 ¼ 2 B22 þ B42 B32 ¼ 2 B22 þ B24 þ B42 þ B44 B33 ¼ 4 ð3cÞ Because bilinear interpolation averages two or four adjacent data of the same color attribute, the interpolated values may be what do not exist in the real scene. Since different interpolation equations are used for color components, the associated color built by combining them can show undesirable color where there are edges with high gradient.
In practical implementation of an ISP, however, it is often necessary to consider at the transfer stage not to emulate the synchronization code because the ISP may use all 256 values that an 8-bit code can have. There are three timing information signals such as F, V, and H, where they are transferred with protection bits at the last codeword of SAV or EAV. Their bit positions and meanings are given in Table 1. As described above, the simplest form of an ISP is composed of quantization, color space conversion from R-G-B to Y-CR-CB, and data formatter.
