Frame Rate Up-Conversion is a post-processing tool employed at the decoder side of video transmission systems and works with the information available at the decoder. In this report, we propose a new algorithm that is based on state-of-the-art techniques. The algorithm implemented has been designed to apply the motion compensation techniques of the digital video coding standard H.264. The main characteristic that distinguishes the implementation to existing techniques is the Non-Regular Block partition and the degree of sub-pixel accuracy. A Neighbourhood Coherence tool is employed with the purpose of minimizing blocking artifacts. The system has been developed with the intent to obtain a low complexity technique that allows the system to be applied in real time environments. Experimental results show that the resulting quality outperforms state-of-the-art techniques.
