Dual database processing
One database is used to clean the picture, reducing on-screen noise. The other is used to upscale the resolution, improving clarity. These two powerful image improvement databases work together, dynamically improving pixels in real time. Each database has tens of thousands of references, amassed from our experience
creating content for TV and movies over the years.

CONVENTIONAL WITH DUAL DATABASE PROCESSING

CONVENTIONAL WITH DUAL DATABASE PROCESSING

1. Noise reduction database
Compressed noise is identified by the database which includes "before and after” data on what a picture should look like and removes the
compressed picture noise.
2. Upscaling database
The upscaling database also includes "before and after" data which is used to upscale the signal and create a more realistic picture.
