Abstract

This disclosure is directed to improve the resolution in an imaging system utilizing a Charge Coupled Device (CCD) to generate electronically processable picture elements; specifically the concept of vibrating or causing a photo-responsive means to vibrate or move in a rectangular or oscillatory fashion so that each element in an array can be sampled at least four times and produce four discrete picture elements having two common borders. The result is the scanning of twice as many lines of data and yielding twice the density of scan per line.
