Nowadays, CCTV can be come across easily in public institutions, banks, and etc. These CCTV play very important roles for preventing many kinds of crimes and resolving those crime affairs. But in the case of recording image of a specific person far from the CCTV, the original image needs to be enlarged and recovered in order to identify the person more obviously. Interpolation is usually used for the enlargement and recovery of the image in this case. However, it has a certain limitation. As the magnification of enlargement is getting bigger, the quality of the original image can be worse. This paper uses FDP(Facial Definition Parameter) proposed by the MPEG-4 SNHC FBA group and introduces a new algorithm that uses face outline information of the original image based on the FDP, which makes it possible to recover better than the known methods until now.
