In this letter, a novel technique for fast block matching using a new matching criterion is proposed. The matching speed and image quality are controlled by the one control parameter called matching region ratio. An efficient matching scheme with a gradual voting strategy is also proposed. This scheme can greatly boost the matching speed. The proposed technique is fast and applicable even in the presence of speckle noise or partial occlusion.
