This paper presents a block loss recovery technique for the image block data corrupted by transmission losses through the employment of fine directional interpolation (FDI). The proposed algorithm introduces a spatial direction vector (SDV). The SDVs are extracted from the edge information of the neighboring image data. Subsequently, the SDVs are adaptively applied to interpolate lost pixels on a pixel-by-pixel basis. This approach improves the capability to more reliably recover high-detailed contents in the corrupted block. Experimental results demonstrate that the FDI method performs better as compared to previous techniques.
