University of Rome deploys da Vinci Revival
The University of Rome's Centro Teatro Ateneo has installed the da Vinci Systems Revival image restoration system to train graduate students in specialized post-production work on videotape as well as to restore and digitize the university's audiovisual archive.
At the Centro Teatro Ateneo, Revival runs on a dual-core Intel Xeon processor interfacing with an Apple Mac Pro workstation. Student trainees use the Mac Pro to grab video frames and edit the chroma values before transferring frames that requires additional work in Revival.
Revival's high-speed processing algorithms automate some restoration work, including dirt/dust removal, grain reduction, aperture correction, noise reduction and image stabilization.
