MotionDSP Improves Grainy Video for Military, You

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.
