Moving images are an essential part of our cultural heritage. Like with paintings or buildings these products of human creativity suffer from different negative influences over time. Due to improper treatment in the past as well as due to the natural processes of film aging the quality of these historic documents degrades. Deteriorations due to moisture, mould, dust or mechanical damage like scratches and tears can influence the image quality so badly that the moving images are lost for future generations.
Intensive research of our Audiovisual Media group on solutions for this problem resulted in the development of a worldwide unique software system for digital restoration of moving images. Under the name DIAMANT-FILM a user friendly, efficient and comprehensive restoration solution is available for film archives and post production companies. They use it to restore movies degraded by improper storage environments as well as movies captured with faulty cameras or in improper shooting conditions. Due to continuous improvements and novel developments by our Audiovisual Media research group (e.g. within the Dust-NG) DIAMANT-FILM can hold its leading position on the world market.
