Golden Years

The video restoration system detects faults in the images and restores the image quality in real time, where possible, semi-automatically. Interactive restoration tools are supplied for badly damaged materials, allowing the operator to modify the editing. The success of this project required significant advances to be made in the field of high speed processing algorithms, and the system is now being validated by the BBC, INA and RTP, companies which hold the biggest archive collections in Europe.
