Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9962245A2] It is known to use sub-sampling in large solid-state imaging devices, for example photocameras, for the purpose of picture display in the viewfinder of the camera. If use is made of a mosaic color filter, a number of lines of different colors must be read each time during sub-sampling in order to preserve the color information. In the case of interlaced mode display, this may give rise to distortion of the picture. The invention provides a way of sub-sampling in which the picture can be displayed in a manner which is substantially or entirely free of distortion, and in which the color information is preserved.
