Image demosaicking (or demosaicing) is the interpolation problem of estimating complete color information for an image that has been captured through a color filter array (CFA), particularly on the Bayer pattern. While many complicated methods for demosaicking have been proposed, Malvar, He, and Cutler showed that surprisingly good results are possible with a simple linear method using 5×5 filters.
