It has been shown that one can make use of local instabilities in turbulent video frames to enhance image resolution beyond the limit defined by the image sampling rate. This paper outlines a real-time solution for the implementation of super-resolution algorithm on MPEG-4 platforms. The MPEG-4 video compression standard offer, in real-time, several features, such as motion extraction with quarter pixel accuracy, scene segmentation to video object planes, global motion compensation and de-blocking and de-ringing filters, which can be incorporated into the super-resolution process to produce enhanced visual output. Experimental verification on real-life videos is also provided.
