In this letter, an intra-field deinterlacing algorithm based on a gradient inverse weighted filtering (GIWF) interpolator is proposed. The proposed algorithm consists of three steps: We first interpolate the missing line with simple strategies in the working window. Then we calculate the coefficients of the gradient-weighted filters by exploiting the local gray gradients among the neighboring pixels. In the last step, we interpolate the missing line using the proposed GIWF interpolator. Experiments show that the proposed algorithm provides superior performances in terms of both objective and subjective image qualities.
