While many of us try to take video and images with our cameraphones or webcams, the resulting footage is rarely usable and suffers from a great deal of anti-aliasing and generally messy pixels. MotionDSP has solved that problem by using special algorithms to “recreate” lost data in real time, thereby bringing almost useless low-light and compressed video into tight focus.
TechCrunch talked to the folks over at MotionDSP and discovered that the process works best on smooth, non-jerky video but, as we can see above, the improvements are immense. The product started as a military research project at UC Santa Cruz but is now available for licensing.
