The algorithm provides deeper removal capability and low artifact levels while being easy to use and controlled by the operator.The new algorithm is the latest advancement in dust removal technology, incorporating the latest AI technology to offer superior performance. Its advanced capabilities provide deeper dust removal while minimizing the appearance of artifacts and preserving image […]
In Viva 18.104.22.168, we are introducing new sharpening and enhancement tools based on powerful AI-based algorithms and multiresolution approach. Cleverly combined with grain management, dust/dirt/noise/scratches removal, it perfectly works for post-production and film restoration. This new technology gives archivists important new opportunities in delivering historically accurate restorations, while also meeting the demand for high quality, […]
Viva software automation allows not only studios to carry out large prestigious restoration projects, but also professional people. We are proud to present such passionate professionals and their recent restoration work done with Viva: Gerhard Bauer, Professor of Hematology / Oncology, School of Medicine, University of California, Davis restored a unique nitrate print of a […]
“Software suites like Viva could have, say, separate professional and home-movie automatic-restoration tracks. The latter would leave archivists to adjust anything they might like to, while the former would be more automated so that the home user would have little to do other than press that “one button.” – Peter Monaghan. “How Machines Restore Archival […]
Two years ago we presented the early results of applying artificial intelligence and machine learning to image restoration. We showed the results that preliminary forms of AI could deliver in automatically detecting and removing scratches. Since then, there has been steady stream of major breakthroughs in AI that have enabled some truly transformational new capabilities […]
Flicker happens both in the old cinema and in the era of modern cameras. Viva easily eliminates flicker on old films. But when the flicker can be caused by certain combinations of unsynchronized light sources, electricity and cameras, so called “backlight flicker”, which are usually used for recording concerts or slow motion, then there are […]
In Viva 22.214.171.124, we present another new feature based on the new AI algorithm for high-quality de-interlace conversion. This feature is included in the professional license of VivaPro, and not in VivaAuto /Lite.
In Viva 126.96.36.199, we introduce new features based on a new AI-based algorithm for generating an interpolation frame (an intermediate frame located in the middle of the time interval between 2 frames): 1. Generating intermediate frames for a sequence of frames producing a new sequence which can be used either for the effect of “slow […]
Find out how the new ALGOSOFT Technology was presented at The Reel Thing 2017, in Los Angeles, August 24-26, from ENTERTAINMENT TECHNOLOGY CENTER: http://www.etcentric.org/new-software-tackles-scratch-removal-for-film-restoration/ Full version of the presentation:
Algosoft has launched new Viva 188.8.131.52 with a new AI generation of DeScratch tool based on Neural Network. Scratch removal is traditionally the most difficult and tricky technique, due to the scratches variability and their similarity to vertical structures in the background and/or other objects. For the first time, Neural Networks were applied to create […]
A year ago, we demonstrated a major breakthrough that enabled our image processing algorithms to do the fine-tuning themselves, and completely automatically. In most cases, those advanced reduced complicated digital film restoration processes to the click of a single button. But behind this click there were four or more successive passes of processing. The restorations […]
We are proud to announce that NBC Universal started Viva licence partnership from June 2016.
Algosoft Tech, a leading supplier of automatic software solutions for the film and video industries, announces that the Korean Film Archive (KOFA) purchased VivaPro software recently and has begun using it for their restoration work. Algosoft Viva technology is very important to motion picture archives because up until now, digital restoration has only been practical […]
The Library of Congress has licensed Algosoft’s Viva All films deserve to be restored – not just famous ones. We believe, Viva technology is tailored for quality non-judgmental film/video restoration. Currently no other software is capable of doing digital film restoration work in an automated manner, at a quality anywhere near quality of Viva. Using […]
Paula Felix-Didiér, of the Museo del Cine in Buenos Aires, found a real treasure — a nearly complete print of one of the most sought-after missing films, Fritz Lang’s 1927 masterpiece Metropolis. It was long assumed that Lang’s original cut was forever lost — but apparently one 35mm nitrate print made it to Argentina. This […]
