Definition: Interpolation method which uses data from all eight pixels surrounding the pixel being worked on. * Because it uses more pixel data - a total of 16 coefficients or multipliers - than bilinear interpolation, it operates more slowly but produces better results because the rates of change are theoretically continuous.
