Anyone who’s interested in video technology should watch this demo of a processing system developed by students.
The blurb on the site doesn’t really do it justice:[quote]This system, by students at the University of Washington, uses still photographs or one single frame of a video scene to automatically improve video. The improvements are amazing. Video might contain artifacts like overexposure and low-resolution imagery and this system takes cues from still images of the scene to bring almost the entire video up to photographic quality.[/quote]Sure, that’s covered in the first part of the video and it’s impressive enough. But later on, they show how whole objects - such as photos or telegraph poles - can be removed or replaced.
