University of Washington GRAIL Project Seeks to Improve Video for Digital Cameras

The Graphics and Imaging Laboratory (GRAIL) of the University of Washington has taken their research project on video enhancing a step further by using still images from digital cameras.

Their technology enhances video by improving its spatial (more pixels) and temporal (more frames) resolutions. If this goes commercial, we might see improved video images in consumer-level hybrid cameras that can simultaneously capture video and high-resolution stills.

The technique produces a high space-time resolution video using the high-resolution stills for rendering and the low-resolution video to guide the reconstruction and the rendering process, according to the abstract accompanying their demo video.
