Restoration of old video archives

Participants: Emilie Chouzenoux, Jean-Christophe Pesquet (collaboration F. Abboud, WITBE, J.-H. Chenot and L. Laborelli, INA)

The last century has witnessed an explosion in the amount of video data stored with holders such as the National Audiovisual Institute whose mission is to preserve and promote the content of French broadcast programs. the cultural impact of these records, their value is increased due to commercial reexploitation through recent visual media. However, the perceived quality of the old data fails to satisfy the current public demand. The purpose of our work is to propose new methods for restoring video sequences supplied from television archive documents, using modern optimization techniques with proven convergence properties.
