A group of thieves entered in my house and robbed a lot of my stuff. They used a car to run away. The following images were obtained from CCV cameras from neighbors. Is it possible to improve those images so we are able read the car plate? enter image description here

    I think you've to contact these guys CSI, see an example of their work here. Sorry about your lose. My comment is only as a humor. – Farhan Sep 17 '14 at 19:26

    If you have access to the original video - you may be able to use multiple frames to create a composite frame that enables the plate to be read. – dav1dsm1th Sep 18 '14 at 20:08

    Please try to get the entire video from the neighbors CCTV. If you can, then you can use crops from the neighboring frames the create a super-resolution image. For example, PhotoAcute can morph images to register and align the images, then interpolate the images to give you better results. Depending upon the images, you may need to deconvolve them (cf FocusMagic) and/or remove some motion blur before you try to 'stack' the images. Or, you may create the super-resolution image, then try to remove blur. Is it possible to get us the original, uncompressed video? – B Shaw Sep 19 '14 at 0:26
  • Is that line of ?holes? across the front of the bonnet standard for that model of car? I've not seen anything like that before. – Russell McMahon Sep 20 '14 at 0:26

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because photos should be given to the police which then can take further steps. – flolilo Feb 21 '19 at 12:41

Given that the pictures seem to be low resolution, no- the plate in the camera 3 shots is just a big blur. If the resolution was higher so that you could distinguish the letters and numbers as individual blurs, you might be able to get something by using deconvolution.
