iSIZE has released its first performance results taking advantage of the new Intel architecture developed for the 4th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processor. Called Advanced Matrix Extensions (Intel AMX), the new design allows AI-based video processing like iSIZE BitClear to be performed entirely within the CPU, avoiding the latency, energy and cost overheads of linking to a GPU or other external accelerator.
The volume of video to be processed, delivered and stored continues to grow exponentially. The material ranges from professional archive footage and consumer-generated content to surveillance and drone images, as well as the hours of video that are uploaded to YouTube. Although much of this material has a limited resolution, even the market for security, surveillance and drone video is growing steadily.
The video quality from such applications may also be affected by dirt or rain on external lenses, drone vibration, storage and upload limits, and degradation in the case of archive footage. To overcome these problems through processing, iSIZE BitClear uses deep learning techniques to dynamically restore the video.
“Trained to disassociate the source and noise data and recover video details, the aim of BitClear is to achieve the best possible quality, without affecting the perceptual intent of the content creator or changing the aesthetics of the decoded video.”
