this endeavor. Youku started its digital restoration project in 2017, with many results. E
arlier this year, iQiyi also launched its own restoration project featuring the use of ZoomAI, a video-en上海会所
hancing solution devised by the company, to restore and remaster 50 select TV dramas.
上海会所Before the adoption of new technologies, restoration of the old works, most often in lower resolution, was done manually and it
took a day to restore a 40-minute-long episode. Now, iQiyi’s ZoomAI software, comprising algorithm modules suc
h as color enhancement, sharpening, and white balance, can restore a high resolution feature film in just one hour.上海会所
The restoration process starts with scanning the film negatives or prints into a digital pict
上海会所品茶微信ure and raw sound format. Then each frame of the scanned material undergoes an automated digital res
oration process that involves the correction of color, brightness, and contrast. The process also involves the dig
ital removal of scratches and unnecessary noises, restoration and remastering of sound, said Liu Junhui, a senior director from iQiyi.上海会所
Even with the aid of AI technologies, digital restoration of old productions is no mean fea
上海会所品茶微信t, as increasing the image resolution is one thing, but restoring its original texture is quite another, which requ
ires technologies, as well as a craftsmanship spirit. For instance, 30-plus members of the Youku digital res
toration team worked for as long as a month to fully restore the 1983 megahit, The Bund.
“Our team has made various attempts to enhance audiences’ viewing experien上海会所
ce. If only the definition is increased through transcoding, audiences may feel that the im
ages have been doctored through filters. So we went to great lengths to restore the texture that is unique to the pe
riod when the classical series was shot,” said Guo Linna, a senior visual optimization engineer from Youku. 上海会所品茶微信
Though Youku’s digital restoration team is made up of no more than 40 members who
do not work full time, every week it can restore 100-plus episodes of old TV dramas.
Speaking of her original motivation, Guo said that she chose to restore those old TV series because on the one hand, she wa
上海会所品茶微信nted the post-80s generation to have better access to recalling childhood memories, and on the other hand, she wan
ted the younger generation to gain new experience through watching these classic works.
